“My Dad’s birthday today – April 7th. Born in London, a cockney, in 1921, he would have been 92 today. Harold served his country in the 2nd World War in the Royal Air Force, flying as a navigator, in Mosquitoes and Beaufighters. Here he is, Harold May, in 1940, just before he met my Mum, Ruth Irving Fletcher, a Scot, serving in the WRAF. Their only son Brian was born in 1947. Around 1965 Harold and Brian completed a home-made, self-designed guitar – the ‘Red Special.’ In 1977 Harold watched that guitar being played at Madison Square Garden, NYC.
Happy Birthday my Daddy, wherever you are. You would be proud to see how your grandchildren – and great grandchildren - are doing. -Bri”
“We’re confident people will take to us, because although the camp image has already been established by people like Bowie and Bolan we are taking it to another level. The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic. Glamour is part of us and we want to be dandy. We want to shock and be outrageous instantly.” - Freddie Mercury
MAYBE IT’S JUST ME BUT I GOT A GOOD FEELING WHEN I SAW THIS
If there’s a point, if there’s a reason to live or die
If there’s an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask"
