3. Freddie Mercury

Born Farrokh Bulsara on 5 September 1946, in Zanzibar to Parsi-Indian parents, Freddie Mercury would make a name for himself with his highly theatrical style, flamboyant stage persona, and four-octave vocal range. Along with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, he would form Queen in 1970 and spend the next two decades releasing hit after hit.

Despite numerous questions about Mercury’s lifestyle and sexuality, he never publicly admitted he was gay. Sadly, that lifestyle would catch up with him as he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987, but he would never publicly talk about this. It was only confirmed the day before his death on 24 November 1991 that he had contracted the disease. At just age 45, the world would lose a man regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock music.

  1. Chadwick impressed me a lot. I really liked his acting. I would watch his movies over and over I will miss him .

  2. Tonny-Broe Parkin

    It really hit me when she got her heart attack onboard the plane she had boarded. I truly admired both her and her mother – both as human being and as actors.

  3. I’ve never even heard of your # 10, What about Elvis, the king of rock & roll, actor/love of every woman’s heart? Where does he come in at on your list?
    Also, what about Paul Walker/actor, starred in The Fast and Furious franchise, the longest running street car racing action series spanning the 90’s until present. 20 years running with nine movies, six of which he was one of the leading roles as character Brian O’ Conner along side Vin Diesel, starring as Dom Torento. Paul, 40 yrs old , tragically died in a fiery car crash when the Porsche he was a passenger in lost control hit a light pole then a tree and exploded into flames, literally burning Paul to death.
    Paul’s daughter, Meadow, later won a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche for a undertirement amount of money in the death of Paul caused by a faulty fuel line. Where does Paul fall into your devastating celebrities deaths?

  4. Wow not mentioning the tragic and shocking murder of John Lennon is a shame. James Dean and Chadwick Boseman were very shocking as well. The others were sad and shocking but were inevitable due to their drug and alcohol abuse. Sharon Tate was another shocking murder. Thank you April patgault@comcast.net

  5. Robin Williams, Whitney Houston, both were devastating., to me. Robin Williams was a complete surprise! He was a genius and made his living with his brain. So, I can see he had no light at end of the tunnel experience. But, a shocking event. Whitney Houston, was incredible! Whenever she was singing I just took pause to hear the beauty of very note. But she couldn’t get away from. Bobby. The end was clear to me. Still an incredible woman. Her daughter was equally a shock.
    Michael Jackson, equally a shock. Killed by the very people meant to help him. I always just stopped whatever I was doing to watch him dance. His music was fantastic! One of a kind!

  6. Can’t believe you didn’t name Michael Jackson and Kobe Bryant, who gave you this list. You had several that were substance abusers.

  7. Where is John Lennon on this list. I am not a fan of his or the Beatles but I recognized that his tragis death had a huge impact worldwide.

  8. I agree with the 10 celebrity deaths that left fans devastated but what about ‘TINA TURNER’ and ARETHA FRANKLIN ? I was very,very devastated by their passing!!!
