Brian May once interrupted his academic career to further his music career. As a guitarist for the rock band Queen, he became a world star. But science never let him go.

The corona pandemic has left emotional marks on Brian May. On Instagram, where the Queen guitarist is very active, he recently gave insights into his inner life. “The feelings I have are confusing,” wrote the man with the famous huge, now gray, curly mane. May also posted a video showing him arriving at a hotel in Italy. “Scenes like this really touch me – they touch us all.”
