Freddie Mercury's piano sells for $2.2 mn at the Sotheby's London auction.

Mercury used the Yamaha grand to write some of Queen's greatest hits, including Bohemian Rhapsody.

Born Farrokh Bulsara, he studied in Panchgani and was fascinated by Lata Mangeshkar's high-pitched singing style.

The rhinestone crown Mercury wore at his final concert was auctioned for $801,560.

"I won't be a rock star, I will be a legend."- Freddie Mercury
