Google logo Freddie Mercury

September 5 is the late singer Freddie Mercury‘s 65th birthday.

In honor of the occasion, Google has dedicated their home page to the Queen frontman with a custom Doodle logo that launches a video music tribute when clicked (you can watch the video here below).

Since it’s Labor Day (a major holiday) here in the United States on Monday, September 5, Mercury’s logo won’t appear on the U.S. home page until Tuesday, September 6. You can view it at the UK page, as well as Google’s other international sites.

Also, Queen guitarist Brian May did a guest entry about his friend and bandmate on the Google blog.

Freddie would have been 65 this year, and even though physically he is not here, his presence seems more potent than ever. Freddie made the last person at the back of the furthest stand in a stadium feel that he was connected. He gave people proof that a man could achieve his dreams—made them feel that through him they were overcoming their own shyness, and becoming the powerful figure of their ambitions. And he lived life to the full. He devoured life. He celebrated every minute. And, like a great comet, he left a luminous trail which will sparkle for many a generation to come.
