Letter By Freddie Mercury Year Before He Died Up For Auction

Listen: Queen Release Rare Fast Version of 'We Will Rock You'

A letter penned by Freddie Mercury a year before he passed away is going under the hammer.

This was the last letter the frontman wrote to the Official International Queen Fan Club.

It was written in November 1990, after he finished the recording of his final record, Innuendo.


Mercury sadly passed away a year later, in November 1991, of bronchial pneumonia resulting from Aids. He was 45.

The letter is expected to go for £3,000 at a Glam Rock sale next week.
