million records after forming Queen in 1970. He was renowned for his charismatic stage presence during his 21 years with the band.

David Bowie, 63, was third in the poll. Next up was Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi, 48, followed by Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Slash, 45, and Bono, 50.

“Freddie Mercury had it all the voice, the image, the stage presence, everything,” the Daily Star quoted OnePoll.com spokesman as saying.FreddieMercury

“He was idolised around the world by millions of fans and his legend will live on forever.

“He combined his ear for music with an ability to deliver to stadium audiences and millions were devastated when HIV finally killed him in 1991,” he added.

Our Freddie is a totally irreplaceable musical phenomenon and has just been recognized as such.His vocal/music writing and composing talents plus his solo work outside of Queen transcend those of any other in his field.His unmatched performance as a Rock Singer with Queen --think Live Aid 1985-- are beyond challenge. It is incredible what Freddie achieved in a tragically short career, before being cut down by AIDS in 1991. There was never any question in my mind that he was the best Rock Singer and now he has been judged the Greatest Rock Legend and rightfully so.He made Queen. Without Freddie the sound that was Queen would never have existed. Our precious tortured genius,gone too soon.

A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It's a theatrical event.
