It was in a UK magazine. The cover was the gatefold picture of the second album.
It included an interview of Brian, an interview of Roger (just after the release of "Electric Fire") and an album recap from one of the Dandy Warholls (if I'm not wrong).

no, i think Brian's wealth is more than 40 million... in the Queen special of Mojo it said the John has something like 55 million pounds, and that freddie was worth about 80 million when he died.. i think brian's worth about the same as freddie and Rog has about 70-60 millions as well...


Thank you my darlings, you lot of tarts.

From the Sunday Times 2004 Rich List of Britain's wealthiest people.

For reference, I've included the top 10 wealthiest in music. The positions in the first column are obviously the placing in the overall rich-list.


Name Worth Industry
23 Clive Calder £1,235m Music
40 Sir Paul McCartney £760m Music
196= Simon Fuller £220m Music and television
199= Madonna and Guy Ritchie £215m Music and films
206= Robert Stigwood £200m Music
223= Sir Mick Jagger £180m Music
233= Sir Elton John £175m Music
233= Sting £175m Music
253= Keith Richards £165m Music
253= Tom Jones £165m Music



723= Brian May £55m Music
777= John Deacon £50m Music
777= Roger Taylor £50m Music

"OMG BRIAN IS PROBS WORTH 100000000000000million hehe i dont know? "

It's contributions like this that make contributions like Bohardy's (ie THE FACTS), increasingly unlikely.

Actually - you are NOT "giv(ing) any info" at all. All you are doing is constantly asking stupid questions which could easily be answered by either Google, or the above search button.

Stick around, watch, read, look, listen. God provided you with two ears - and only one mouth for a reason. Try and work out why.

After being around for a while - you will find it easier to contribute, and you will also make some good friends into the bargain.
