BRIAN MAY AND ANITA DOBSON ON LOOSE WOMEN (BRIAN DUCKS OUT!!)

Yesterday was 'Bring Your Husband To Work Day' on ITV's "Loose Women" chat show. Brian May went along on a day when his wife, Anita Dobson,was taking a turn on the panel.

When asked "Do you have any idea what you've let yourself in for?" Brian gets up and leaves the set, beating a hasty retreat, saying "What was I thinking?")

Brian May and Anita Dobson's loving rows
Published: Nov. 13, 2015, 6:53 a.m. by MornéJK -

Brian May has revealed he has "massive" respect for his wife Anita Dobson and readily admits they have "massive arguments" because they they "care" about each other so much.

Brian May has revealed Anita Dobson knows how to "press" his buttons and they do have "massive arguments" but always make up.

The 68-year-old rocker - who married his beautiful spouse in 2000 and has been with her since the late 80s - has revealed he has so much respect for his 66-year-old spouse and he believes they only argue because they care so much about their relationship.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Loose Women' on Thursday (12.11.15), he said: "I have a massive respect for my wife. She's an extraordinary actress and she's a lot of other things in the house that I don't even want to go into ... I'm so proud of her ... We do have massive arguments. But it's because we care. And little things and insignificant things can blow up. Your partner knows your buttons to press and I'm not usually quick to blow up but Anita, she can get me."

And, although they bicker about the "little things", the former 'EastEnders' star - who is a panellist on 'Loose Women' - believes their relationship is so strong because they really want to stay together and be a couple.

She said: "I think things only work because you want them to work and want to be with him. So that's the whole reason we're still together."

Brian added: "We were told it would never last. I think people thought we were both too volatile. Freddie (Mercury) said, 'It'll never last darling.'

"Even my manager said, 'Marrying an actress, you must be crazy.' And somehow we're still here."

BRIAN MAY: PLAYING A FESTIVAL WILL 'OPEN DOORS' / LOVES WATCHING ANITA DOBSON ON 'LOOSE WOMEN'
Direct link

EXPOSE.ie
12 November 2015

Brian May believes signing up to headline the Isle of Wight Festival next year will ''open doors'' for his group Queen and Adam Lambert. The 68-year-old guitarist will close the event with his group on June 12 next year and admits that whilst they have never done a festival together before, they are ready to put on a ''great show''.

Speaking at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour Awards, which he attended with his wife Anita Dobson, he told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm so excited to be playing it. The Isle of Wight festival to us is of great resonance because of who played there - it's The Who, it's Jimi Hendrix, it's Bob Dylan. To be part of that is great, to be asked is fantastic and we just need to make sure we put on a great show. We've been asked to play a lot of festivals and we haven't done it, I guess because we've always wanted control over what we do. But maybe this has opened the door.''

However, Brian is a little worried how the band will cram all of their hits into the set.

He added: ''The problem with Isle of Wight is how do we get all the hits in. We shall see. It's a very exciting prospect for us because we've never done a festival before.''

Brian May loves watches Anita Dobson on Loose Women
12 November 2015

Brian May is a fan of 'Loose Women' and always tries to watch his wife Anita Dobson when she is on the panel and gives her ''notes'' ahead of her appearances on the daytime chat show. The Queen guitarist's spouse is a regular on the daytime talk show and Brian always makes an effort to support her and tune in to the ITV programme.

Brian, 68, insists he doesn't care if Anita, 66, gives away embarrassing details of their home life together and actually gives her ''notes'' to help her during the topic discussions.

Speaking at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour Awards in London on Wednesday night (12.11.15), he told BANG Showbiz: ''I always try to see her on it, I give her notes for it. She can do what she wants, she's the boss really.''

Brian will be grilled face-to-face by his wife - who famous played Angie Watts in 'EastEnders' - and the other loose ladies when he appears as a guest on the show this week. [Thursday 12 November]

The 'Bohemian Rhapsody' rocker insists he will be ready for anything Anita and the gang throw at him. He said: ''I will be on it this week, so I will be there first hand to make sure they do it right. We're quite careful that we're not on it as a couple, she's on the panel and I'm a guest.''

Among the tales Anita has told about her and Brian's life together include their garden shed being overrun by stray cats stopping them from using it.

He emphasised the importance of accepting all kinds of music and told us that he was thrilled to be there.

Brian May enthusiastically chatted to us about musical influences, while Alice Cooper and his wife looked very much in love, opening up about plans for their 40th wedding anniversary. Both looking spectacularly stylish, to everyone’s delight, the dynamic duo posed for photos together.

Brian May dedicates Living Legend Award to Freddie Mercury
12 Nov 15

 

Brian May paid tribute to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury as he picked up an award on Wednesday (11Nov15). Queen star Brian May saluted the band's late singer as he collected the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour's Living Legends award in London... The guitarist dedicated the group's latest accolade to the "incredible and irrepressible" Freddie Mercury.

"I know he would have loved to have been here for this," May said, before thanking the rock community for their years of support. "We are fans too," he stated. "We are here because of the likes of Jimmy Page and the forever awesome Jimi Hendrix. I want to say thank you to the people who voted for us."

And the rocker saved a special mention for Queen's current frontman, Adam Lambert, calling the former American Idol star a "gift from God".

Once again, a stellar line-up of rock royalty attended the event to celebrate what has been an incredible 12 months of music.

The evening's guests of honour and recipients of the Living Legend Award were Queen, whose song Bohemian Rhapsody first charted on November 8, 1975, 40 years ago to the week of the Awards.

Their enigmatic frontman, Freddie Mercury, was one of the greatest of all time. His vocal range and musical vision was unique, and alongside the unmistakable guitar playing of Brian May, Roger Taylor’s thunderous drumming and John Deacon's incredible bass lines, Queen became one of the UK's greatest musical exports ever. Having sold in excess of 150 million albums, they have the unprecedented achievement of all four members being responsible for composing worldwide No.1 hits including We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Another One Bites The Dust, Radio Ga Ga and Under Pressure.

The award was presented to Brian May by Joe Satriani. Previous winners of the Living Legend Award include Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper, Jimmy Page, Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Gregg Allman and ZZ Top. Joe Satriani I Interview I Music-News.com - https://youtu.be/wyhgdolR-vo

PREMIER GUITAR
Leslie West: “Going Down” Exclusive Song Premiere
10 November 2015 by Ted Drozdowski

Leslie West, who led Mountain to fame on the original Woodstock stage, is back with a new album, Soundcheck, out on November 20. Despite health setbacks in recent years, West’s girthy guitar tone and roaring, soul-fired voice are intact. That’s obvious on this scalding take on Don Nix’s song “Going Down,” which was popularized by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Freddie King, one of West’s many blues heroes. The tune was also recorded by Jeff Beck on 1972’s Jeff Beck Group album, and was a springboard for some serious jamming between Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan on their 1989 double-bill concert tour.

And speaking of Beck’s version, ex-Jeff Beck Group keyboardist Max Middleton reprises his role on West’s howling new take on the song, and is joined by two other distinguished guests, Queen’s guitarist Brian May—who dives in on the second solo and plays through the cut’s end—and singer Bonnie Bramlett of Delaney & Bonnie fame, who harmonizes with West.

“I’ve been playing this song onstage for a long time, slow and quiet,” West explains, “and then I build up the volume and use the volume knob to create violin-like swells. I love the way my bass player Rev [Jones] plays it with me, so I wanted to get it on the album. Incredible words. Also, Jeff Beck had done such a great version of the song, so I took the opportunity to play some different melodies over the chord progression.”

West revisits Beck’s soul-blues catalog a second time on Soundcheck, recording a version of Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready,” which Beck recorded with guest vocalist Rod Stewart in 1985. West superbly handles both roles for his new rendition. Other guests on Soundcheck include Peter Frampton and the late Jack Bruce. The latter is featured in a live recording of the Willie Dixon/Cream classic “Spoonful” that he and West performed in 1988, when Bruce appeared on West’s Theme solo album.

Soundcheck is West’s 16th solo album, in addition to his catalog with Mountain—which includes such influential tracks as “Mississippi Queen,” “Nantucket Sleighride,” and “Theme For an Imaginary Western”—and West, Bruce and Laing.

Queen guitarist says Bohemian Rhapsody saved the band...

ITV.com
10 November 2015 by Nina Nannar

Brian May knows what people want to talk about - it's "That Song!" With good humour he recalls the great times, he says, Queen had recording Bohemian Rhapsody 40 years ago. He says the band were bankrupt at that point and needed the song and the album A Night At The Opera to work.

How they did is now the stuff of history. It was Freddie Mercury's song. Did you ask him what on earth it was about?, I said. "We had an agreement", he says, "as a band, that none of us would ask each other what our songs were about - so we didn't!" That, of course, has allowed us to make our own minds up. Forty years on the song remains iconic, instantly recognisable and loved by millions around the world.

Queen are the recipients of the Classic Rock Legends Award this year, which has delighted May. He says he wishes Freddie Mercury was still around to enjoy the accolades.

The band has long been in talks for a film on Mercury's life, a project which has stalled for some time. Sacha Baron Cohen was originally tipped for the role but that was dropped. "We knew he wouldn't be quite right for the film" says May "He is such a powerful personality and his films are so based on that, that convincing audiences that he could be Freddie could have been hard." But now the project is underway, with Ben Wishaw - currently to be seen playing Q in Spectre - set to take the role.

There is also a script nearly finished which the band says they are happy with. It's been written by Anthony McCarten, who was Oscar nominated for his work on The Theory of Everything. May says he and Roger Taylor realised they needed to be involved with the project more. He said: "It's our story being told up there and we only get one chance to do justice to Freddie's story" .

So decades after Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor dazzled the world with five minutes and 55 seconds of rock opera and a video that has been credited with launching the MTV generation, "That Song" continues to be talked about and celebrated the world over.

TRANSCRIPT by Jen Tunney
BRIANMAY.COM

TOM BRADBY: And it's the 40th Anniversary of this....

<VT: 'Bohemian Rhapsody>

... the song that saved Queen from bankruptcy.

---

And finally, is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Or can it rally be forty years since Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, one of popo music;s mos influential songs, entered the charts. Among the celebrations, a recognition award for Queen's legendary guitarist,Brian May. He's been reminiscjing for News At Ten.

NINA NANNAR: The video cost three and a half thousand pounds and took four hours to make. British music had never seen anything like it. Today Queen's guitarist says Bohemian Rhapsody is the song that saved their careers.

BRIAN MAY: It always does feel great doing thaat song. It was sust a great time. I mean the great times are always right next to tragedy in a sense, because we were right on the breadline. We were, well below the breadline. We were bankrupt.

NINAH: Later this month queen will release this footage from 1975, the first tour in which they played Bohemian Rhapsody live. Tomorrow the band will pick up the top honour at the Classic Rock Awards. Freddie Mercury died 24 years ago ater battling AIDS. He would, says May, enjoy the accolades this song still receives.

BRIAN: I think he would just smile. He wouldbe pleased that people are still interested and excited by that creation. It was an amazing time for us all. So Freddie's a great thing in my life still. I wish he was here to enjoy it.

NINAH: Over the years many ahve paid tribute, though there is nothing quite like the real thing.

<VT cuts back to Brian playing Bohemian Rhapsody solo on his Red Special>

BRIAN: That's your lot!

NINAH; No chance of that. Next year Queen headline the Isle of Wight Festival. Guess which song they'll all be screming out for. Nina Nannar. News At Ten.

TOM: That's it for tonight. I'll be back tomorrow. Good night. Thank you for watching.

BRIAN MAY SIGNS ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR SECRET WORLD CHARITY AUCTION
Direct link

BRIDGEWATER MERCURY
10 November 2015 by Rebecca Heyes

EVERYONE is going Radio Ga Ga over the latest announcement surrounding a popular animal rescue centre.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill is holding its 13th Auction and Ball at the Webbington Hotel on November 28. With many items being donated, in a musical twist that is sure to catch the eye of many enthusiastic bidders, an electric guitar signed by rock legend, Brian May, is to be auctioned off.

The guitar is dark blue with animals such as badgers and foxes painted up the neck and badgers painted on the main body. Brian, of Queen fame, agreed to sign the instrument for the rescue centre as he supports the work they do with wildlife.

Secret World Guitar


Founder of the charity, Pauline Kidner, said: "Someone gave us a guitar and one of our volunteers, April Dunnett, has painted the frets with badgers, deer, foxes and many other animals. Brian is very supportive of our work especially with badgers and we were so pleased when he agreed to sign it for us."

The auction and ball evening is themed as a Haunted Castle and entertainment will be provided by ten-piece band, Area 52. This is the largest fundraising event that Secret World hold every year.

More than 100 items will be silently auctioned off, with 12 main items hoping to catch the eye of eager bidders. These include a chance to be in the audience in the One Show as well as a tour around the BBC. As well as this, you can spend a day with Simon King O.B.E. and visit his Wild Meadows where amazing countryside photography has taken place, and the opportunity to be a vet for a day. Brian's signed guitar is a big front runner.

Pauline added: "Sealed bids will be accepted for the guitar up to 12 noon on Friday 27, but if you want to be sure of winning the guitar you need to be at the auction."

Tickets for the event cost £40 and include for a three course meal, casino, auction and dance. Guests need to arrive by 6.30pm.

For more information, contact Secret World on 01278 783250 or visit www.secretworld.org
