Brian May Would Liked To Have Been A Member Of AC/DC

(Gibson) Had he not forged his career with Queen, Brian May would like to have been a member of… AC/DC. May revealed that secret desire to London's The Independent in a wide-ranging interview, going on to add that, musically speaking, he was "the wrong sort of size and shape" for the Australian rockers.

"I'd have probably liked to be in AC/DC [if Queen hadn't existed]," he said. "But I'm the wrong sort of size and shape, unfortunately. Because it's different from Queen. Queen were very eclectic – that's the word isn't it? – and we just trampled over every boundary that there was. But AC/DC are in a sense the opposite. They know their style and it's incredibly pure and I have a great respect for that. And every single note they play is AC/DC completely."

May also said his vision of what he could do with the guitar came to fruition on Queen II, released in 1974. "When we came to Queen II, we were actually in a proper studio with time that was booked like a real, proper band," he said. "We had adventurous ideas on guitar harmonies but also vocal harmonies – just painting a huge picture, which was in our heads. Queen II is a lot of stuff. There are all sorts of guitar parts fighting each other." more on this story
