Brian May was bornon 19 July 1947 in Hampton, London, British. Brian May is an English musician, songwriter, astrophysicist and famous guitarist of ‘Queen’.

May picked up the guitar when he was just 7 years old forming his first band in school. It was astonishing for his family and friends at the time who realized his passion for music and science, which worked very well as a combination for him. He then pursued PhD in Astrophysics at Imperial College, London, quitting in between, cashing on the fame garnered by his famous rock band, ‘Queen’. As a part of the band, he composed several tunes and even wrote some very popular songs. With several guitar solos, covers and collaborations with legendary artists, May’s music albums have topped the music charts in the UK and USA. After 30 years, he went back to college to complete his PhD and has also continued to perform live around the world.
