I really don't want to seem negative about this, I'm more just curious. Even if you've never said anything like this, I would appreciate your feedback. The thing is, recent comments made about him have been bothering me. These comments include:

-Brian had a habit of writing songs in a failing attemt to sound "hard ass"

-His ballads are "rigid and gushing in overblown sentiment"

-He was "goofy" looking

-Many Queen fans just feel "overprotective" of him, yet many others "despise this kind of weakness"

Was Brian a loser? Was our very own Queen guitarist weak and we just feel sorry for him? Do we really feel this way? Or is this just a small group of people yapping?

(I realise many of you DON'T feel this way, so don't take this to heart if you've never said anything like the things above.)

"-He was "goofy" looking"

That's what my stepbrothers say about him :P

I don't think Brian is a loser, IMO. He just has a bad habit of going about on misguided excursions.

Was? Why was? He IS. But not a loser, but a some kind of philosopher, IMO.

Yes - being a founder member of one of the biggest bands on the planet AND one of the highest paid company directors in UK history does indeed make him a loser.

So what does that make you?

He(pause) is (pause) Awesom(pause) O 4 (pause) thousand.

(About Bri)I think he's a geek, well kinda. But he's also very smart and sensitive. A babe magnet really. :)

Bound to be the loser in the end, no doubt.

I don't think he was a loser at all, especially if you're judging him as that just because of his songwriting. Maybe some people think his ballads were awful, but I personally love them, and I don't think I'm the only one. He's a talented guitarist who was in a huge and influential band, which doesn't really equate to him being a loser.

He was the member of one of the best bands in history, he's one of the best guitarists in the world, he's loved and appreciated by millions.. Yes, sounds like complete loser to me...


Give me a good guitar, and you can say that my hair's a disgrace, oh, just find me an open car - I'll make the speed of light out of this place...

It's all a matter of one's own opinion.

Some of us thought Freddie was hot, while others think he wasn't anything special.

Some people think Brian wrote the best songs out of all of them.

Some love Deaky; others hate him.

This is just another personal opinion post if you ask me, and it doesn't really matter. However you think of him is however you think of him.
Cheers

By the way, I don't think Brian is a loser, nor was he ever.

Oh God. I promised myself I wouldn't ever bash a newbie...

Look pal, I'll try to say this nicely. I posted this because I'm pissed at some of the comments I've heard from OTHER PEOPLE about Brian May. All I'm saying is that having this negative attitude will get us into trouble, and that those comments above were WAY out of line. (except the one about him looking goofy, we all have a right to our opinion I guess) Comprende??? (what a dumbass)

And as for anybody else who didn't get this, OF COURSE BRIAN'S NOT A LOSER. If you look at my profile, he's my FAVORITE member. That's precisely why I was concerned. I just wish certain members would choose their words more carefully and show a little more respect.

Thanks. I appreciate it. It's upsetting when people don't even TRY to understand what you're saying, they just jump to conclusions.

I think that your post has been misunderstood, Awesome. The topic that you propose has sense, according to the comments we have heard.
To answer your question, I wolud say that Brian is just a little freaky. Technically, he may be not the best guitar player in the world, but very sensitive and a good composer as well. He is an uncut diamond that shines under special circumstances. He always did by Freddie. He seems to be a bit lost without Queen, and it looks like he goes on composing for Queen (Back to the Light and Another World)... without Queen.

Well, I can understand why this has been posted. I gthink I know what you mean. Considering our picture of a rock star, Brian does not really fit in. No drugs, no whores, no trashed hotel rooms... He himself knows he is different and he does not mind. Yeah, he was a sheltered boy, he was always more the philosopher as someone said before.
But then, what is a loser? Financially speaking, he is not. Also, there are many girls who would like to see him naked. So, sexually speaking, he is not, either. He also won at least one Ivor Novelli award (Too Much Love Will kill you). So, culturally speaking, he is not, either. He is married to the woman he loves, he is still doing research in astronomy... I guess the list might go on. Yeah, he ain't no tough Bruce Willis guy, but I think that's okay. Basically, I respect every guy who suggests to tie your mother down...
