You guys, I just learned that Brian May from Queen, and Brian May the composer are TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
This revelation has rocked my world. I’ve thought the guitarist from Queen composed the scores to all the Mad Max movies as his side gig since I was a kid. I even wondered why he chose to score Freddy’s Dead as his first post-Queen project.
It’s a good thing I’ve never met Brian May the guitarist, because my plan was to tell him “I love your scores, too. Big Mad Max fan” and that would’ve been EMBARRASSING.
Sadly, Brian May the composer died in 1997. Brian May the guitarist is still alive and well, holds a PhD in Astrophysics, and spends his spare time working on saving the world. A far nobler cause than scoring B-Movies.#BrianMay #BrianMaytheComposer #BrianMaytheGuitarist #Queen #MadMax #RoadWarrior #Score #Soundtrack #SoundtrackNerd #ScoreCollector #Vinyl #BMovies
