Passable Queen Biography, Not a Brian May Biography.,
This review is from: Brian May: The definitive biography (Hardcover)
One gets the feeling that this book has been written by large cut-and-pastes from a Queen biography. The middle section of the book deals almost exclusively with Queen with very little Brian-specific information. There is almost no discussion of the Red Special or how Brian achieves his distinctive sound, no discussion other than "he uses a sixpence" about Brian's unique guitar technique or writing style and everything after Freddie's death (some 17 or so years) is dealt with in two short chapters.
Put it this way, if you've heard the name Greg Fryer, or you know that Brian has been known to wears clogs then you shouldn't bother with this book, as you probably already know more than is contained within.
