Good Morning All
When it comes to legacy, Brian May would like his to be the work he’s done on behalf of animals – and not the rock history he helped make as part of the legendary group Queen.
“When I’m gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures,” he told the UK’s Sunday Times. “I suppose I’ve lived a crazy life, and watching wildlife brings back a sense of tranquility.”
