I have a theory, but I'd like to hear other people's thoughts first...

I reckon it's about Brian:
You stand so tall you don't frighten me at all
I think as two guitarists they often didn't see eye to eye. Even on this song they had a huge argument about having a guitar solo.

Subliminally, it might well be.

I've always thought it was about Brian. I seem to remember reading somewhere that Brian and John weren't getting along around that time. Hot Space being an R&B/Disco album, apparently John didn't even want a guitar solo on this song. He got his wish eventually, two albums later.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had picked up on the notion that it might be about Brian. I thought that maybe I was reading too much between the lines.
