Brian May is vooral bekend als de gitarist van de rockband Queen. Als Brian Harold May wordt hij op 19 juli 1947 geboren.

Samen met zijn vader bouwt hij zijn eigen gitaar die hij ook een naam geeft: de Red Special. Deze gitaar produceert een uniek geluid en hij bespeelt het instrument op nagenoeg alle Queen-singles.


Als leadzanger Freddie Mercury in 1991 overlijdt gaat May solo. Een eerder uitstapje maakte hij al in 1983 met het mini-album Star Fleet waaraan Eddie van Halen meewerkte. In 1992 verschijnt May's eerste echte solo-album getiteld Back To The Light. Van dit album komen vijf hits en drie ervan halen de Top 40. Driven By You (#10), Back To The Light (#31) en de grootste hit is Too Much Love Will Kill You die in september en oktober 3 weken lang op nummer 1 in de Top 40 genoteerd staat. Het nummer stamt oorspronkelijk uit 1988 en was bedoeld voor het album The Miracle. Op het album Made In Heaven uit 1995 staat het nummer ook, maar dan worden de vocalen gezongen door Mercury.





Songtekst



They say that I'm dangerous
Like everything I touch it falls apart
If I were to tell, they'll kill me now
Well Imma cut to the chase

I used to wish on a star but nowadays I need space: Satellites
See the black shades white chain, flashing lights
Never thought I could of felt this low in the highlights
So I asked Phyllis its still another day in paradise
Is there heaven for the forever 27
Could it be three years till I'm jammin' with legends?
I got thousands of fans, but I don't get the obsession
There's a nice guy inside, I guess I've never met him

'Cause I could buy a fast car
But not even an airplane can seem to get me out of here
The pressure and the stress are both dying to see the end of me
And the man in the mirror is looking at me like an enemy

Whoa
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger every time
Whoa
Don't let em tell you how to live your life, cause

They say that I'm dangerous
Like everything I touch it falls apart
If I were to tell, they'll kill me now
So Imma cut to the chase

Cause I'm living like a Rockstar
I ain't afraid the good die young
Cause I be living like a rockstar
I blow up a million miles away, away, away

Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh
Chicka BANG BANG
Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh
Chicka BANG BANG

Mama always told me there's someone looking over me
Think she meant the guy with the camera tryna photo me
Be careful what you wish for, cause the truths a little different
If the Guardian's my angel, why's the Sun burning holes in me?
They let me loose on the public, but I didn't prepare
I get shock by a lens every time I appear
Put a star in the room, I swear it changes the atmosphere
Cause I'm a celebrity, can someone get me out of here

Whoa
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger every time
Whoa
Don't let em tell you how to live your life, 'cause

They say that I'm dangerous
Like everything I touch it falls apart
If I were to tell, they'll kill me now
So Imma cut to the chase

Cause I'm living like a Rockstar
I ain't afraid the good die young
Cause I be living like a rockstar
I blow up a million miles away, away, away

Cause I don't care, I don't care
Take me there, take me there
Na nan a I ain't scared, I ain't scared
Take me there
But Imma cut to the chase

You ain't a legend till your set in stone
But now your just flesh and bone
Just a little proud child bored at home
I'll be the best till my dying breath: Brian Jones
A wise girl once sang tears dry on their own
Fuck a moment of silence in my house
We shut the whole shit down for Winehouse
So I've got something to say
Take aim, pull the trigger
Cause your never going to blow me away

They say that I'm dangerous
Like everything I touch it falls apart
If I were to tell, they'll kill me now
So Imma cut to the chase

Cause I'm living like a Rockstar
I ain't afraid to die young
Cause I be living like a rockstar
I blow up a million miles away

Cause I don't care, I don't care
Take me there, take me there
Na nan a I ain't scared, I ain't scared
Take me there
But I'mma cut to the chase
