In addition to being a founding member of Queen, May is also a Doctor of Astrophysics, 3D stereoscopic photographic authority and a passionate advocate and campaigner for animal rights. A diligent Astronomy student working towards a PhD, Brian decided to put his academic studies at hold as Queen's popularity first exploded. Ever since the groups' formation in 1970, the band enjoyed worldwide success with a number of hit singles including the most recognizable rock anthems, "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions". Using a home-built guitar named "Red Special", he gave his contribution to many compositions "Tie Your Mother Down", "I Want It All", "We Will Rock You", "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Who Wants to Live Forever". Just like other band members, May's fortune has constantly swelled even after the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury in 1991. Thanks to his contributions to the music industry and charity work, he was appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2005. Two years later, he finally earned a Ph.D in astrophysics from Imperial College in 2007 and served as Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University from 2008 to 2013. He currently resides in Windlesham, Surrey.
