Remembering Freddie Mercury

A host of stars will attend a charity auction in memory of Freddie Mercury on what would have been the Queen singer's 65th birthday.

Around 300 friends and fans of Mercury, including band-mates Roger Taylor and Brian May, will be at the event at the Savoy Hotel on Monday. Among the items being auctioned off will be an acoustic guitar from a tribute concert in 1992, a chance to appear in the London hit musical 'We Will Rock You' and a one-off Evora S - the car comes in pearl white with red and gold racing stripes, a colour scheme inspired by Mercury's costume in the "Magic Tour" of 1986.

All proceeds will go the Mercury Phoenix Trust, an AIDS charity set up by Queen after the singer's death in 1992. All the guests are all being encouraged to dress up as Mercury.

Queen will also be streaming its historic 1986 concert "Queen Live At Wembley Stadium" for 48 hours on YouTube .

Here's a chance to see some memorable Freddie moments and you can share your memories below.
