Later he shared pictures from outside what used to be Freddie’s childhood home, but is now the Tembo House Hotel, which is also known as Freddie Mercury House.
- May also shared a childhood photo of Freddie, noting, “We’ve enjoyed spending the day with this little boy in our minds. A small boy with big dreams. A young man who became a brother to Roger and John and me for 22 years," adding, "A shy boy with whom we shared an impossible vision of making music that would change the world.”Check out the photos below.
