There are at least 2 artists with the name Brian May 1) Born on 19th July 1947 in Feltham, England to parents Harold and Ruth May, Brian May is probably best known as the guitarist for English rock band Queen. Within the band he introduced unique triple layered guitar harmonies, created on his home made guitar “Red Special”, which has become his trademark over the years. He also made his mark during the Queen’s jubilee by playing God Save The Queen on top of Buckingham Palace to begin the concert.

In addition to having huge success as a member of Queen, Brian May also has a string of solo albums including “Back To The Light” and “Another World”, as well as having written soundtrack material such as “Furia”. Brian also collaborates with artists like Paul Rodgers , Ian Hunter , Eddie Van Halen and many more.

Besides being a talented musician (he can play guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, keyboards, and many other instruments, as well as having the ability to sing), Brian is also a recognized astronomer. He has been made a Doctor in the field of Physics, and has recently been awarded a Doctorate in Astronomy after finishing his thesis, started in the early 1970s before Queen gained recognition.

In 2006 he collaborated with Sir Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott to release “Bang! The Complete History Of The Universe”. It has since been released in a number of languages.

  1. Send “Dear Friends” Ringtone to your Cell
    So dear friends
    Your love is gone
    Only tears to dwell upon
    I dare not say
    As the wind must blow
    So a love is lost
    A love is won
    Go to sleep and dream again
    Soon your hopes will rise and then
    From all this gloom life
    Can start anew
    And there’ll be no crying soon


  2. So you feel that you ain’t nobody
    Always needed to be somebody
    Put your feet on the ground
    Put your hand on your heart
    Lift your head to the stars
    And the world’s for your taking
    (All you gotta do is save the world)
    So you feel it’s the end of the story
    Find it all pretty satisfactory
    Well I tell you my friend
    This might seem like the end
    But the continuation
    Is yours for the making
    Yes you’re a hero (oooh yeah)
    Flash!! Ahaaa
    He’s for every one of us
    Stands for every one of us
    He saved with a mighty hand (with a mighty hand)
    Every man every woman
    Every child he’s the mighty
    Flash! Ah ahhhhhh
