This past Sunday marked what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 75th birthday, had he not died 30 years ago. Brian May paid tribute by posting an Instagram video from his garden. The Queen guitarist said: “Hi folks, I just thought I’d say a few words.”

Brian continued: “It’s Freddie’s birthday as we all know. And I’m sitting out here having a nice cup of tea, wishing I could share a cup of tea with Freddie. It’s not to be but I do feel he’s very much here and all around us.”

The 74-year-old then shared the song he likes to play to remember the Queen singer.

He said: “And if I want to remind myself of how glorious he was and is, I put on the Queen version of his epic song Made In Heaven.”

The track was originally on Freddie’s 1985 solo album Mr. Bad Guy, but was reworked by Queen for the band’s final album, also called Made In Heaven, released four years after the singer’s death.
