Really great new interview with Brian May of Queen. From Louder Classic Rock, interview by Dave Everly. 

LINK: "Brian May on Eddie Van Halen, flying to Pluto, and why he'd like to be a Lord" 

Some Quotes from the interview/article: Be sure to read the ENTIRE interview linked above. 

"Guitarist Brian May talks to us about solo albums, astronomy, recording with Axl, and why Queen are somehow bigger now than ever"
"Few bands have had a second act quite like Queen’s. The idea of continuing without Freddie Mercury was unthinkable back when Classic Rock began, not least to guitarist Brian May. Yet since relaunching in 2003 with former Free and Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers, then later Adam Lambert, the band are as big as they were first time around. “I’d say more so,” May tells us now. “It’s incredible.” Queen’s 21st-century resurrection has been burnished by the hugely popular We Will Rock You stage show and the equally blockbusting Bohemian Rhapsody biopic starring Rami Malek as Mercury and Gwilym Lee as May – which won four Academy Awards, the most at the 91st ceremony – as well as string of mega-successful tours that have shown Lambert to be the literal and metaphorical inheritor of Mercury’s crown."

"And then of course there’s Adam Lambert, who Queen are with now. If he hadn’t entered your lives, would Queen be big as they are today?"

Brian May: " I can’t see that it would have worked with anybody else. He’s a voice in a billion and a presence in a billion; the showmanship, the personality, the range, his ability to reinterpret stuff . Plus he’s nice person to have around. He’s a gift from God."

I am so glad being an Adam fan introduced me to Brian May. It's easy to see why his fans adore him. He is a so smart and kind and interesting. And he is such a English gentleman.

I agree, Dee R Gee. And Brian's right...who else could fill that position other than Adam? Both Queen and Adam are a zillion% enhanced by their fortuitous combination of uncanny happening!.... and a "Gift from God" for us, too.

An aside.....We have not heard from Sue Smith for a very long time. I miss her! I hope she is O.K.
