Many celebrities have been diagnosed with AIDS since the 1980s and have died from complications from this disease. The first high profile star to die of AIDS was Rock Hudson, who succumbed to the disease in 1985 and brought it to the forefront of the American consciousness. Other celebrities who have died of AIDS since then include Queen’s lead singer Freddie Mercury, Psycho actor Anthony Perkins, tennis player Arthur Ashe, and Brady Bunch dad Robert Reed.
