Queen's Brian May has been placed 4th in Q magazines light-hearted look at the 25 most pathetic rock stars.

In the write up it says Brian, despite being a member of one of the worlds debauched rock bands he seldom drank, never took drugs and hated promiscuity.

His Astromony interests are also mentioned. His "least Rock and Roll moment" is playing on the roof of Buckingham Palace. Also included in the list are Chris Martin, Nicky Wire and the number one was Lou Reid.

Im totally shocked, what just because he doesnt follow the other rockstars and copy them with there drug taking habbits and sleeping with too many groupies...
Thats just sterotypist....

i can't believe you were angered by this. the whole point of the article is to construct a chart of
'pathetic rock stars' - ie those most 'unrockstar-like'

Q have done this before - only the other way around - ie 'the heavyweights' and it usually has Keith Moon, John Bonham, Freddie, Bon Scott, janis Joplin, Hendrix etc in it

i can't see what your gripe is about. i'm surprised Brian (with the case for) didn't make no1 - the evidence is so fucking overwhelming!!!

Hi!

Well, here we go again, the magazines using the stars to make money,do musicians have to behave according to the madia standards? Besides what is "pathetic" for them? Are they using the concept correctly? Here's the meaning found in the Oxford dictionary:

pathetic

• adjective 1 arousing pity. 2 informal miserably inadequate. 3 (archaic) relating to the emotions.

— DERIVATIVES pathetically adverb.

— ORIGIN Greek pathetikos ‘sensitive’, from pathos ‘suffering’.

So subjective appreciations again in the media, a magazine in this case, as Freddie would say:"The things you have to do for money"...

Best wishes, peace and whole lotta love!
