Freddie Mercury Net Worth: Freddie Mercury was a British musician and singer/songwriter who had a net worth of $100 million dollars. Freddie Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara on September 5, 1946 in Stone Town, Sultanate of Zanzibar (now Tanzania). He is best known as the lead singer of the rock band Queen. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona, powerful vocals and an over four-octave range. As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen, Somebody to Love, Don't Stop Me Now, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and We Are the Champions. In addition to his work with Queen, he led a solo career, and occasionally produced music and guest-starred as a musician (piano or vocals) for other artists. As a member of Queen, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004, and the band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. Also in 2002, Mercury was placed at number 58 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. He continues to be voted one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2005, a poll organized by Blender and MTV2 showed Mercury as the greatest male singer of all time. In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers of all time and a Classic Rock poll voted him the greatest rock singer of all time. In October 1986, the British press reported that Mercury had been blood-tested for HIV/AIDS and though Mercury claimed the results were negative, the singer died at only 45 years old and the official cause of death was cited as bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS. At one time, Mercury lived with and was romantically linked to Mary Austin and, in fact, left the vast majority of his estate and wealth to Mary, giving the remainder to his parents and sister and delegating some funds to be distributed to his chef, his personal assistant, his driver and his relationship partner at the time of his death, Jim Hutton.
