(Classic Rock) Queen's Brian May has paid tribute to Freddie Mercury's mother Jer Bulsara, who has died at the age of 94. Bulsara passed away "peacefully in her sleep" according to May, with the guitarist praising her "huge enthusiasm" for Queen before and after the death of Mercury in 1991.

May says in a statement: "Jer was a warm and devoted mum to Freddie, and, like Freddie, always had a strong twinkle in the eye. Although she was also devoted to her husband Bomi, and lived in the Zoroastrian faith as a good Parsee, she had an independent spirit and a strong sense of humour.

"Of course, I knew her for over 50 years, and when I first used to go around to Freddie's parents' house in Feltham, only a few yards from where I lived, in our student days, Jer was a busy mum, full of life and optimism - and even then, fiercely proud of her children, Freddie and Kashmira."
