5. Brian May

“I was so stunned when I first heard Queen. Oh my god… it was like the skies had opened up. Isn’t it remarkable how unique they were and how nobody has come even remotely close to doing anything as exotic and crafted as Queen?

“Brian’s tone is so identifiable, he’s the master craftsman of rock guitar with cream on top. That’s what his beautiful harmonies sound like; they’re like audio whipped cream!

“I’ve tried many times to blend guitars, my whole is about blending guitars musically, but nobody comes close to him. His touch, note choice, musicality, tone… all of it.

“When I got to know Brian, I realised that it’s his personality flowing heavily into that music. There’s almost a sense of royalty to how he plays his notes.”
