Afro-haired rocker and dandy dresser Brian May looked utterly bemused when he was approached by a scruffy middle-aged man at the launch of the new Dan Dare cartoon series at London''s RAF Club on Tuesday night.
"I met Roger Taylor for the first time. He lives near me," the little bearded chap wearing a green T-shirt and khaki trousers told the Queen guitarist before scuttling off into the sunset.
"Who the hell was that?" a confused May, 53, sporting an eyeball-searing burgundy velvet jacket asked his companion. "Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics," came the swift reply.
"That''s Dave Stewart!" gasped May. "God, I should be more friendly to people."
