Inside Brian May’s life: a heart attack, an EastEnders actress wife, and a gift from Freddie Mercury

0

Heart attack, EastEnders star wife, and Freddie Mercury gift are all part of Brian May’s life.

Brian May of Queen is not only one of the world’s greatest guitarists, but also a doctor of astronomy, a wildlife campaigner, and the husband of a well-known soap star.

Queen guitarist Brian May is a member of one of the greatest rock bands of all time, with frontman Freddie Mercury passing away 30 years ago on November 24, 1991.

Brian and he were close friends, and on his debut solo album Back to Light in 1992, the guitarist lamented the loss of his beloved friend.

Since Freddie’s death, Brian and the rest of the Queen band have established the Mercury Phoenix Trust to support Aids-related projects all over the world and to honor Freddie’s legacy in everything they do.

In recent interviews, Brian has also discussed the ‘dark place’ that Freddie’s death and other personal losses led him to, as well as his heart attack in 2020 and the anniversary of his marriage to an EastEnders acting legend.

Brian May’s net worth is estimated to be (dollar)210 million (£166 million) as a member of one of the world’s most famous rock bands and as a successful solo artist.

Brian was in the band Smile with drummer Roger Taylor before forming Queen with Freddie Mercury and John Deacon in 1970.

The rest is history, as they say.

He is not only one of the best guitarists of all time, but he also wrote 22 of Queen’s biggest hits, including We Will Rock You, The Show Must Go On, Save Me, I Want It All, and the ballad Who Wants to Live Forever, which Brian also sang on.

In 1992, he released his first solo album, Back to Light, which included songs like Driven by You.

In 2002, he sang the national anthem live from the roof of Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

He was made a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) three years later, in 2005, for his contributions to music.

Brian is still touring the world as Queen with Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert, as well as working on solo projects with singers such as Kerry Ellis.

Brian May is famous for his Red Special Guitar, which he says his father helped him build when he was a teenager 60 years ago.

Both are associated with the guitar.
