May studied physics and mathematics at Imperial College London, graduating with a BSc (Hons) degree and ARCS in physics with Upper Second-Class Honours. From 1970 to 1974, he studied for a PhD degree at Imperial College, studying reflected light from interplanetary dust and the velocity of dust in the plane of the Solar System. When Queen started to have international success in 1974, he abandoned his doctoral studies, but co-authored two scientific research papers: MgI Emission in the Night-Sky Spectrum (1972) and An Investigation of the Motion of zodiacal dust Particles (Part I) (1973), which were based on his observations at the Teide Observatory in Tenerife.

This is the first I've heard that May is an astrophysicist. Bizarre indeed.
I think Patrick Moore the astronomer was a mentor of Brian's from an early age. They were good friends apparently.

No, he didn't, though Rob Halford of Judas Priest is a former neighbour of mine, and was seen through the bathroom window gobbing off the dude who used to cut and blow (arf) my mums hair.
And the real Mick J, or does a member of the Meteors share that appellation? I wouldn't have been able to talk to him without doing a comedy strut and silly accent
