This is a very so-so biography of a man who deserves better. To be honest this is more or less a rehash of the authors earlier book on Queen- with a little more detail on Brian added. For the most part there are quotes from people who know the subject vaguely (Cliff Richard!) and very little insight from close friends or indeed from the man himself. As a fan of Brian May it's just about worth reading but it could have been so much better. Let's hope that Brian writes his autobiography one of these days.
