Pictured: Brian May and Professor Roger Taylor
Brian Harold May, CBE (born 19 July 1947) is an English musician, singer, songwriter, astrophysicist, and photographer. He is best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen, and in 2001, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the band's members. Also, in 2018 as a member of Queen, he received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award which recognises "the most distinctive recordings in music history"
He may be best known as the guitarist for legendary band Queen but Brian May will visit Aberdeen in August to celebrate the work of another great who rose to fame thanks to a very different royal connection.
The musician and song writer will appear at the University of Aberdeen in his capacity as photographic historian and Director of The London Stereoscopic Company for the launch of a new book dedicated to Scotland’s great Victorian photographer George Washington Wilson, who hailed from the city, written by the aptly named Professor Roger Taylor.
