Mr. Bad Guy is the first solo album from Queen singer Freddie Mercury. Released in 1985, during a period in which Queen were on hiatus from recordings, it contains eleven songs, all written by him.

His favourite song (one song that he wrote, actually) was Somebody To Love.
"Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private in order to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with me in the fight against this terrible disease." (Statement released on 23 November 1991)
"All my lovers asked me why they couldn`t replace Mary but it`s simply impossible. The only friend I`ve got is Mary and I don`t want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, thats enough for me. I couldn`t fall in love with a man the same way as I have with Mary." (On Mary Austin, late 70s interview)
