Although he was a member or founder of many bands (Omnibus, Veselí Filištínové, Paprsky inženýra Garina, Suicidal Meditations etc.), he remained a solitaire. Although it was possible to see him with different instruments – guitar, bass, drums, piano, Korg – he never wielded any instrument within the meaning "know how to play". Even though everybody knew him, nobody really knew much about him. Although he is forgotten in terms of encyclopedic sources today, everyone remembers him. He had experimented with all kinds of music (even unmusical) instruments from the early 80´s, he had transformed them in bizarre ways and prepared and recorded. Except of occasionally composing new things (but never implemented and now lost), touring and hosting from related bands, his solitary nature took Jarda Palát away into other artistic branches – to fine art, but also in clutches of red wine. In early 1995 he prepared an exhibition of his original paintings in Jednorožec s harfou gallery. Unfortunately he did not manage to introduce his artwork personally. He died on 26. 2. 1995.

Czech guitarist, vocalist and bass player.

Best known as lead singer of popular British rock group Queen. Born 5 September 1946 in Stone Town, Zanzibar, died 24 November 1991 in Kensington, London, UK.

Born as Farrokh Pluto Bulsara to Parsi parents Bomi and Jer Bulsara, he attended St. Peter’s boarding school near Bombay and formed his first school band (*The Hectics*) where he played piano.
At age 17 the Bulsara family fled to England during the Zanzibar revolution and Freddie (as he began calling himself) took up studies in art design. He also formed a band called *Ibex* (later renamed to *Wreckage*) but they failed to take off. Soon after he joined another band called *Sour Milk Sea* but it also disbanded.

In 1970 he met Brian May and Roger Taylor who at the time were going under the name Smile. Quickly taking full charge, he changed the name to *Queen*, and with his art design education designed the band’s logo. It was also around this time that he changed his name to Frederick Mercury by deed poll.

As flamboyant a performer he was on stage, Mr. Mercury was equally adept at songwriting; it was his *Bohemian Rhapsody* that propelled the band to superstardom.

Between the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Freddie took a break from the band to pursue a solo career, spending much time in Munich and New York. In 1987 he was diagnosed with HIV. Despite his illness he still recorded with Queen to finish one last album (*[r=889990]*) and his last recorded song, *Mother Love* (which was to appear on the posthumous *[r=1383329]* album). As the disease took hold, public appearances and subsequent videos revealed a very thin Freddie -- yet he insisted on keeping his illness a secret.

On 24 November 1991, he died in his Kensington home, one day after announcing his illness, aged 45.

Born : June 8, 1951 in Skewen, Wales.Tyler came to prominence with the release of her 1977 album The World Starts Tonight and its singles *Lost in France* and *More Than a Lover*.

Elliott Sharp (March 1, 1951 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA) began playing the piano at six and performing concerts by age of eight, according to him. Sharp claims that his parents wanted him to be both a concert pianist and a scientist. He gave up piano, first in favor of the clarinet and then the guitar. His interest in science led him to build his own effects boxes for the instrument. He became intrigued with all types of experimental music, from contemporary classical to free jazz and sophisticated rock. Sharp studied anthropology at Cornell University, where he played in a band and took an electronics class with synthesizer inventor Robert Moog. At Bard College he studied with free jazz pioneer Roswell Rudd (future Lounge Lizards John and Evan Lurie were classmates). He went to graduate school in Buffalo, where his academic advisor was Morton Feldman. He moved permanently to New York City in 1979, where he played gigs at various underground performance spaces, including the notorious ~Mudd Club. In the ’80s Sharp became a major figure on the downtown New York experimental music scene, collaborating with many of it’s most prominent players, including John Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, Bobby Previte, and Butch Morris. Over the years, Sharp has led his own bands more often than not. His music draws upon the wide range of his influences, from Coltrane to Zappa to Xenakis and beyond.
