Mary Austin and Freddie Mercury

September 27, 2011


Mary Austin, born 1951 in London.


Mary worked in the Biba fashion shop in Kensington,
and was dating Brian May, then bassist in the band Smile.


Farrokh Bulsara was a Smile fan,
joined the band, changed the name to Queen,
his name to Freddie Mercury and
took over Brian’s girlfriend Mary.

She moved in with him in 1973,
but left some years later saying:
you’re not bisexual, you’re gay.


She got married and had a son,
but remained good friends with Freddie.

Fragments from Channel 5 documentary Freddie’s Loves.
Playlist complete documentary
As in this documentary is stated,
the song Bohemian Rhapsody is about her,
but the song is of course:

Love Of My Live


When Freddie Mercury died in 1991
Mary was pregnant of her second child.
She inherited the majority of his vast fortune.
Divorced and married again in 1998.
