The lead singer and songwriter of superstar rock group Queen - famous for songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Killer Queen," "Somebody to Love" and "We Are the Champions" - the late Freddie Mercury was arguably the most gifted and flamboyant of 20th century rock stars. Jason King discusses his research into Freddie Mercury's stardom and musical output, deconstructing the singer's complex African and Indian roots and the way he negotiated multiple (open) closets in his work toward a subversive but mainstream musical and visual artistic practice.
