Freddy Mercury's boyhood in Zanzibar:

We know him as Freddie Mercury, the swaggering lead singer for Queen whose taste for drugs, sex and pomp was legendary even by the hedonistic standards of the 1970s.

Subash Shah knew him as Buckwheat, a shy, insecure boy with a severe overbite who grew up on the island of Zanzibar, mimicking the moves of Cliff Richard and Elvis Presley.

I had no idea that Mercury's family were Zoroastrians. Link via Robot Wisdom.
