HIS famous guitar riffs may have stood the test of time. Sadly for Brian May, his trademark hairdo has not.
The 62-year-old Queen guitarist looked decidedly ashen as he stepped out in London this week.
It is in stark contrast to twelve months ago, when the star's famous head of unruly curls appeared jet black.

And he appears to have discarded the dye bottle in recent months and opted instead to let nature take its course.

The issue of his hair has often been a touchy subject for the aged rocker, who has reacted badly to accusations he has had a perm to maintain frizzy locks.

He once said: 'This stupidity of people who say I have a perm or whatever. It baffles me. All this 'poodle' c**p. It pi***s me off. Because there's so much good stuff to talk about.'
May, who joined Queen in 1971, once admitted that although he had been embarrassed of his hair in the early days of the band, he later thought of them as cool. He has now maintained the same style for almost four decades, changing its length only marginally in that time.

However, his fading hair can't have been helped by his recent stress levels, following an angry outburst directed at a Tory councillor in April.

The star described Leicestershire County Council leader David Parsons' as a ‘pathetic, arrogant, snivelling little dweeb’ in an extraordinary clash over fox hunting.

May launched an anti-hunting campaign, prompting an impassioned defence of the Quorn Hunt, which has operated in Leicestershire for more than 300 years.

Mr Parsons said: ‘I fear people in rural communities are not going to take lectures from a cosseted London rock star.’

As soon as May heard about the comments in a local paper, he posted an abusive tirade on his website alongside a picture of the councillor.

He labelled Mr Parsons a ‘disgrace’ and threatened to have his ‘guts for garters’ if the pair came within ‘sniffing distance’.

‘How dare you presume to judge me, and insult me? You don’t know anything about me, little man,’ May said.

Yeah, I did see it.  And what a dumb, pointless article. I'm glad you posted it, but the paper is guilty of being dumb and pointless.

It's sad some people pay attention to unimportant issues like this one. Dr Brian May is doing good and positive things, he's seizing the day...Who cares about grey hair when there are so many relevant and urgent issues to deal with in this world? What's the matter wih the press?

That's what the press is all about... saying useless things about people instead of the real issues, like Brian is trying to direct attention to.  Why do you think reality TV is so prominent (and successful) ?  It's probably the best diversionary tactic ever engineered.

=============================================

This article was gratuitous and silly, no doubt about that whatsoever.  Reflects pretty poorly on the paper.  However, Brian is unquestionably responsible for a good portion of the other negative press he's generated over the last three months or so. He's been his own diversion through a stream of utterly injudicious and cringeworthy remarks.  Lots of people love the general idea of what he's trying to accomplish, but I think most people outside the group who are paying attention to the specifics are pretty taken aback. I know I am. Doesn't mean I think any less of his legacy, but he's getting harder to consistently respect.  It's certainly more work anyway.

This is the best they could do?  Really?  Brian May, with the time and resources to pretty much do anything he wants, decides to take up the cause of animals who can't defend themselves, and the Daily Mail can only comment on the color of his hair?  Sheesh.  The jackasses freakin' buried the lead!  Rock on, Brian.  You're one of the good guys.

Is the "Daily Mail" that bad over there? Is that like our version of "The National Enquirer"?

brian is a god like icon, somebody who's music helped me through those difficult teen years, and as a campaigner against these barbaric and cruel,needless so called sports[{not that as a sportsman myself can find any relation between killing defenceless animals for fun and sport} he enrages torie scum, whom read the daily mail. now by writing such articles just goes to show that 1. how narrow minded these people are. 2. that brian has hit a raw nerve, as deep down they know he's correct in what he is saying, so now you have riled the plastic sportsman, the save me campaign is showing to have affect, don't give them any let up as we have the cruel aristocratic toffs who don't live in the real world on the run. articles such as these only aim to attack people such as brian to take the heat off themselves, as they know once this co alition falls apart their hunting days are over.

If he did anything musically interesting, maybe we'd be talking about that instead of the colur of his hair.

As for the animal rights stuff, well good luck to him, but it's not why I became a Queen fan and frankly I really don't give a hoot about it.
