I have just finished reading Brian's Soapbox, and for all of the bitching (myself certainly included) about using the Queen name, or his hypocrisy about American Idol, or his obsession over orbs in his photos, he is a truly remarkable man, and a credit to the human race outside of music.


You know, good times are now.

where is that?

Not on soapbox... his last entry was mainly about his last 5 years as a astronomer.

A clever clogs.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

What I'm wondering is how his pursuit of his Phd is effecting the new album. Even though, it sounds like he's about done with it, so maybe it isn't posponed at all.

Totally agree. I found myself in tears after a few lines. Awesome.

And this just occurs to you now.

Brian May is one of the most amazing people alive in the world today and my dream is to meet him someday.

No, it occurred to me long ago. Given the never ending "Brian EgoMAYniac" stuff around here, thought I'd post my thoughts.

And I thought he was silent for so long because he was gearing up for The Rant To End All Rants.

Kinda sounded like he was reading off his resumé at one point.

Incredible... after starting it in 1970, he's finally submitting his PhD thesis this month. Not that I had any doubt, but it's amazing that he's publicly stating it now. The man will truly deserve all the accolades he'll receive after this one.

I knew he must have been very busy with something. He didn't even post about his trip to Toronto for the WWRY opening.

I started in 2003, and I've got some 6 months left to finish it. That means I'm about 10 times faster :P
