This collection of pics shows people and places in various points of history and provides us with a slice of life we may never have seen before.

“I won’t be a rock star, I will be a legend.” ~Freddie Mercury (1946-1991)

Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar and grew up in India, still, he is remembered for being a British singer and songwriter. His tremendous, four-octave vocal range and his theatrical stage presence made him a crowd favorite when he performed. Mercury is perhaps best remembered as the lead singer of the rock band, Queen, and performed on their many hits, such as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Freddie Mercury was confident and flamboyant. When he said, “I will be a legend,” he wasn’t being cocky…he had an innate way of knowing that his star would shine brightly.
