Freddie Mercury – The Artist
Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 1946 – 1991) was a British singer and songwriter, who achieved worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of the rock band Queen. Regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock music, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Mercury defied the conventions of a rock frontman with his theatrical style, influencing the artistic direction of Queen. Having studied and written music for years, he formed Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. Mercury wrote numerous hits for Queen, including “Killer Queen”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Somebody to Love”, “We Are the Champions”, “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”. His charismatic stage performances often saw him interact with the audience, as displayed at the 1985 Live Aid concert. He also led a solo career and was a producer and guest musician for other artists.
Love Kills – The Song
‘Love KIlls’ is a song by Freddie Mercury, and his first song released as a solo artist, though the other members of Queen appeared on the song – initially uncredited. Written by Mercury and Giorgio Moroder, it was originally used in Moroder’s 1984 restoration and edit of Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent film Metropolis, as part of the film’s new soundtrack. In 2014, Brian May and Roger Taylor reworked a previously unreleased ballad version of the song, Love Kills for inclusion on their new compilation Queen Forever, an album which focuses on Queen’s love songs and ballads.

Modern investigators almost never use chalk or tape as outlines at a crime scene to avoid contaminating the evidence. Although rare in modern investigations, they have become a literary trope in popular cultur
