It's John Reid, not Reed.

A couple links for you:

He's mostly responsible for getting Queen out of that horrible contract with Sheffield, which gave the band the time to make ANATO. Or something like that...

Yeah, he was the main reason I watched that show. In one of the shows towards the end his contestant performed We Will Rock You and he said that he called up Brian to see if he could use the original drum loop for the song.
