Needs Copyedit[edit]

This article doesn't deserve the rating it's received. The content is good but the grammar and language use need going over.

The article needs a copyedit tag. Surely this will upset all the Mercury fans but the best way to get through a crisis like that is to fix the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:18, 23 March 2012‎

Semi-protected edit request on 24 January 2018[edit]

Freddie Mercury worked at a second hand clothing stall in the kensington market with bandmate Roger Taylor from 1968. Although Roger Taylor stopped working at the stall in about 1970 Freddie continued on his own until about 1973. Tbruce19 (talk) 18:31, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 19:43, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Please can someone change British to English singer in the introduction to be more specific. He is of English descent born in Zanzibar. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GlobalPower (talkcontribs) 21:22, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Traditionally we refer to such people as British. Primefac (talk) 21:53, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Also, "His parents, Bomi (1908–2003) and Jer Bulsara (1922–2016), were Parsis from the Gujarat region of the then-province of Bombay Presidency in British India." On his birth certificate they identified as "Nationality: British Indian". How does that make them, or Freddie Mercury, English? Huon (talk) 21:56, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
