Brian May of QueenThere is a lot more to Brian May than being one of the most gifted guitar players ever. Best known as the guitarist for the band “Queen”, Brian is an interesting multi faceted guy with other noteworthy credentials.

I’m not going to preach to you that Brian May or Queen were my favorite, however I am a fan and not unaware of Brian’s skills as a guitarist and I enjoy the music of Queen and Brian’s guitar work. I respect the heck out of him and wish I could play a guitar like him. I recommend that you become acquainted with Brian if you are less than 40 years old and are not sure who he is. Best stated in Wikipedia, the first major achievement discussed in Brian’s biography is not as a musician. Simply put, it will surprise you at most his accomplishments outside of music.

His equipment consisted primarily of The Brian May “Red Special” guitar is best described at Brian May Guitars. Definitely worth a look. A Vox Custom Classic AC30BM Brian May Signature 30w 2×12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp as well as a specially designed DigiTech Artist Series- Brian May Pedal. All of which can be purchase at Guitar Center.

  1. What surprises me is not only that he’s a phenomenal guitarist, but has a phd in astrophysics…Astrophysics…is there anything this guy can’t do?

  2. I know, what a freekin’ mind blower. He may be better in the fields he has phd’s in than as a guitarist, if you could imagine that!

    I wonder if he can rebuild an automatic transaxle out of a 2004 Audi Quatro AWD(super fassst)bionic car with a turbo on it. I can!!

  3. Whoa, I totally didn’t know that. It doesn’t surprise me though. If you’re that far along in the music world, then you probably can do anything.
