When Brian May's father started work in 1963 building a home-made guitar
out of a discarded mantelpiece, he couldn't possibly have predicted the
incredible journey the guitar and his son would eventually take. Brian May,
born July 19, 1947 in London, and the homemade guitar he calls The Red Special
would end up as the cornerstone of one of the world's biggest rock bands who in
their heyday played to over a quarter of a million fans when Queen, the band he
founded with Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor, headlined the Rio Rock Festival.
Using his distinctive guitar May developed an instantly recognizable style and
sound. With his use of powerful chords, carefully structured harmonic layers
and ingenious use of effects he has created some of the most memorable riffs in
rock history. Aficionados of the guitar cite the five minutes and eight seconds
of “Brighton Rock” on Queen's third album Sheer Heart Attack as
one of May's finest performances. The track showcases May's extraordinary
talents and became one of the highlights of Queen's live performances
throughout their career. As a member of Queen, May achieved 23 top 10 albums
and the same number of top ten singles. The band ceased after Freddie Mercury’s
death, but Brian May had already scored a top 10 album with his solo debut, 1992’s
Back to the Light, which included the UK top 10 hits “Driven by You” and
“Too Much Love Will Kill You”. 1998’s Another World and 2000’s La Musique de Furia maintained his status as a guitar god. In 2005 May was
awarded a CBE for services to the music industry and charity work and in 2007
he attained a PhD in astrophysics which led to him becoming a collaborator on
NASA's New Horizons Pluto mission.
Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic
about Freddie Mercury brought Queen a new generation of fans and led to Brian
May and a reformed Queen opening the 2019 Oscar telecast. In 2021 a
remastered release of Back to the Light returned Brian May into the top
10 of the UK album chart.
