Brian May with Simon Bradley: Brian May’s Red Special

Album Review

Nerdy but nice ode to the ‘old lady’ behind Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and co.

For all the allure that’s surrounded the Queen guitarist’s home-baked axe over the years, it’s incredible, really, that such a book has only just emerged. Born from bits of shelving, fireplace, knitting needles, mother of pearl buttons and other housewifely components, the life of the Red Special makes compelling reading.
