My father is OUTRAGED by Brian May


He is a Doctor of Science and he thinks May ruined his life by not pursuing a scientific career, even though he had the qualifications for it. He also despises music of all kinds, and thinks it is a pointless life to pursue.

He thought the same thing about Brian Cox, and even if he is a scientist now, he still was part of a music band at one point, which nullifies anything he may have done since.

I bet your dad is fun at parties.

reply

He has never gone to a party, as far as I know. He doesn't drink, he doesn't sit there and watch TV unless he's doing his work as well. He's just not social.

reply

If Brian May is happy, then should it matter? It's not like having a profession being creative is anything to be ashamed of.

reply

With all due respect, your dad sounds very uninformed about Brian May.

reply

He also despises Queen and queens in general, if you know what I mean.

reply

Sure but 3/4 of the band aren't "queens" if you know what I mean.

Your dad is also missing out on some of the greatest music ever!

Brian is not a one-dimensional guy. Besides his passion for music (and might I add NO ONE can play guitar like him), he and his dad built his first guitar, which he still plays till this day. It's called The Red Special.
Not only is he an astrophysicist, graduating with high honors, he also has a passion for animals and is very involved with protecting them. And if that's not enough, he's a 3-D photographer!

I would say Brian has done anything but ruined his life.

At nearly 72 years old he is still rocking out, flawlessly.
He is one incredible man whom I find beyond interesting.

My dad says he doesn't like music, but I've heard him humming the odd tune from time to time, so I don't know if he's a hypocrite or not.

reply

Wow. I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't like some kind of music!
Music is a great way to relax and brings pure enjoyment (unless you're listening to rap or country--then it's pure torture 😜😜😜😜).

reply

It's a good way to mask the sound of weeping too.

reply

Your dad, no joke, sounds like he has Asperger's

reply

Yup, especially the black and white thinking.

"he still was part of a music band at one point, which nullifies anything he may have done since."

Your father is a dick, not only becasue he dosent realise its Brain May's choive to do what he wants,
but even worse , to write off Brian Coxes huge scientific achievements becasue he was once a successful musician is unthinkable. Just shows he has no appreciation of science as well as music.

reply

Your dad sounds about as exciting as my dad.

reply

I can't believe this guy is your father, or anyones father for that matter. Not only is it amazing that he was able pry himself away from his research long enough to impregnate your mother, but that there was a woman out there who was willing to be around him long enough for him to impregnate her. Probably thinks the missionary position is to risqué.

reply

Your dad is a fool. Brian May is one of my personal heroes, as in a world where most people are doomed to slave away at soul-crushing drudgery to stay alive, May has mastered two interesting and fulfilling fields, and has done so on his own terms.

Quite frankly, I'd have given anything to be able to have lived a life like Brian May's!

And he's an absolutely genuine hard-rockin' scientist. That is as cool as it gets in my book.
