It was a very sad day for rock n roll on Nov. 24, 1991. We lost two beloved rockers on that day. Queen’s Freddie Mercury died from AIDS complications at the age of 45 and we also lost Kiss drummer Eric Carr at the age of 41. Carr died after a battle with cancer.
Today (Sept. 5) we remember the great Freddie Mercury of Queen on what would have been his 70th birthday. Other rocker birthdays today include Journey singer Arnel Pineda (49), guitarist Dweezil Zappa (47), and drummer Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine, Prophets of Rage) is 48.
Sacha Baron Cohen was attached to the Freddie Mercury biopic for many years, but once the project started moving forward Cohen left, and the film seemed like it might die. But then Ben Whishaw joined and actor-turned-director Dexter Fletcher was hired to helm the project. Now Fletcher has left the film, citing "creative differences," which makes us wonder if this project is cursed.
Brian May says he's often thought of the way Freddie Mercury handled his final illness when dealing with the aftermath of the Queen guitarist's own health scare. Mercury died in 1991 from complications relating to the AIDS virus.
