The Story of the Home-made Guitar that Rocked Queen and the World
This book offers a full exploration of every aspect of this extraordinary, hand-built musical instrument played by Brian May in Queen. It includes rare photographs of the Red Special, Brian and his father, Queen and from the set of the film Bohemian Rhapsody.
In 2007 Brian May, best known as the lead guitarist of the supergroup Queen, completed the PhD in astrophysics that he abandoned when Queen first started to find fame. He has his own personal column where he writes about topics including astrophysics, music, photography and his life experiences. He continues to tour with Queen + Adam Lambert.
