Main Question or Discussion Point

Queen's Brian May Rocks an Astrophysics Rhapsody
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=90273890&ps=bb5


. . .
Just as his band was starting to make some noise 35 years ago, May was studying astrophysics. Though he put off his studies to live the life of a rock god, he maintained his interest in the mysteries of the universe. Just last year, he completed a dissertation on interplanetary dust, earning a doctorate from Imperial College in London.

Since then, he's co-authored a book with a title that could pass for a Queen song: Bang! The Complete History of the Universe.
. . . .
May enjoys dividing his time between the observatory and the recording studio these days, he says. But regardless of whether he's inspecting stars or working on his new album, he likes being called "Dr. May."

Never was a big Queen fan. I liked some songs. Didn't care for the glitter-metal scene.

Yet, I envy that guy! Rock-star AND Astrophysicist. Two unobtained goals in my life...

Hah, see, the Ph.D. was really just a ploy for a book deal. Never trust a rock star!

Really, I loved Queen and heartily applaud Dr. May.

Hear, hear! I still listen to them all the time...even my teenage daughter and her friends love them.

Kudos to Brian May. Too bad Freddy's gone...of all the bisexual Zoroastrian rock stars, he was my favorite!

Now if we could say the same about Jimmy Page.
