Encounters With Celebrities/Brian May

This encounter occurred a few years ago in Book Soup after a book discussion and signing. The signing was over by the time I had arrived but I still got to meet Brian May.......... while he was haggling with the store's employees about getting paid for the sales from the books. How funny is that? He stands at about six feet and three inches. He's also thin or waif-like and he still has those long curls.

Brian May recently obtained a degree in astrophysics and is a chancellor for a university in England. How cool is that? Most musicians have a high I.Q. because it's not easy to play the guitar so a high I.Q. is basically essential to the musician. I love Queen's music but it took me a while to warm up to them and it is unfortunate that Freddy Mercury did die but the man did live his life to the fullest extent. I'm sure that the band was devastated by the death.
