Different catalog for all four members and many more hidden facts about them.
Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar, went to boarding school in India, and came to England with his parents in 1964. His birth name is Farookh Bulsara. Due to racial abuse he had suffered in his early teens, he legally changed his name to Freddy Mercury in 1972.
Mercury died of AIDS the day after announcing he had the disease. He died the morning of November 24, 1991 at age 45.
May is an accomplished scholar. He studied astronomy and physics at Imperial College in London.
All 4 members wrote at least one of their hits. Since they all wrote, it gave them very diverse sound.
Before forming Queen, May and Taylor were in a psychedelic band called Smile.
Brian May's guitar is called the Red Special, and was made with the help of his father, who was an engineer, while Brian was still in high school. The body was made from an old mantelpiece that a family friend had discarded while renovating his house and the whammy bar was made from parts of an old bicycle kick stand. It is the interesting mix of materials that make May's guitar tone impossible to duplicate and why he sounds so original. It has a unique tone, which has become his signature, and it allowed him to create various sound effects found on many of Queen's songs, such as "Get Down, Make Love."

They first toured the US as the opening band for Mott The Hoople in 1974.
In 1981, they did the soundtrack for the movie Flash Gordon, which was a huge flop.
All of the members are very intelligent. In addition to May's degree in astronomy, they had degrees in biology (Taylor), illustration (Mercury), and electronics (Deacon).
They proudly declared that no synthesizers were used in their music until 1980.
