Happy Birthday Brian May!
Brian Harold May was born on 19 July 1947 in Twickenham, London UK. English musician, singer, songwriter and astrophysicist he is the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen. He uses a home-built electric guitar, called the Red Special.
The Red Special is the electric guitar that was designed and built by Brian May and his father, Harold, when Brian was a teenager in the early 1960s. The Red Special is also sometimes referred to, by May and by others, as the Fireplace or the Old Lady.
May is responsible for penning more of them than anyone else in the band besides singer Freddy Mercury. He wrote many of Queen’s most popular songs (several of them were hit singles) over the years, which made it tough to compile our list of the TOP 5 Brian May Queen Songs.
