Brian May Blogs About Cliff Richard's New Video, Astronomy and More

Astronomer and Queen guitarist extraordinaire Brian May has a blog called Brian's Soapbox and his latest entry to date is about shooting Cliff Richard's video for his new single "Move It". The video was filmed at Wembley after one of Cliff's shows and features Shadows drummer Brian Bennett and Brian May on guitar.

In his blog, Brian May also writes about Queen, politics, his passion for astronomy and the book that he's recently co-authored with Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott, Bang! – The complete history of the Universe. The book documents the story of the big bang and how the universe has evolved since.

It's amazing to see that one of the most important guitar players in rock history is willing to inform his fans in his own words what he's up to on an almost daily basis. This just emphasizes the fact that with so many blogs cropping up around the internet there's now a platform where the famous and not so famous can mingle together as equals.

Since his days in Queen, I've always been interested in Brian May's other projects. Not only because I like Queen but I also get a kick out of the fact that we share the same last name! My first concert was working as security (believe it or not!) for Guns N' Roses with Brian May opening up for them and that was one of my best experiences. I'll never forget walking into the venue from behind the stage and seeing Brian's hair silhouetted against the lights! But most of all his music. Amazing!
