DRIVEN BY ME ?!!! - LSC INVITES YOU

Driven By Me ?!!! An INCREDIBLE tribute



"Driven by you" for Brian May - the online champions & friends
- https://youtu.be/cJZGCItwpWQ

I'm absolutely floored by this wonderful tribute. I had no idea whatsoever. My dear friends kept a secret very well. I have a strange feeling again – but I am witnessing my own jolly wake! I feel truly privileged and deeply moved. How can I possibly thank everyone who contributed to this work ? Well I can only say here that I am profoundly grateful, and I will never forget this. Enjoy, Folks, and please give me your comments.

Unashamed advertising !! Unashamed because I never wanted to make a profit from my recreation of the London Stereosclpic Company (and I never have - there is no danger !) It’s always been about the thrill of bringing the wonders of a 19th century phenomenon into the 20th, and then the 21st century. So if we do good business, I feel the excitement of a mission being accomplished. The original LSC had the motto “ No home without a stereoscope”. It still works for me !

Come and take advantage of our special 50 per cent lockdown offer. And ... if you feel the magic ... come and be a ‘friend’.

Cheers all

Rock giants ! Killer new version of my ‘sheer bloody poetry’ song, written around 1976.




Brian May: Rock giants killer new version of my ‘sheer bl***y poetry’ song c1976
- https://youtu.be/p2gvtbAZs8k

Just in case you don’t instantly twig who these great musicians are .... Paul Crook, monster guitarist is late of Anthrax, Meat Loaf’s band, and the fantastic band which played for We Will Rock You Las Vegas, and has produced many of Meat’s albums. John Miceli also starred in the WWRY VEGAS band - and has played on many of my works with Kerry Ellis - he is known to me simply as The Mighty Miceli - for mighty he sure is - and one of the most tasteful drummers in the world. Caleb Johnson is a spectacular find - plucked from winning American Idol 13th series - he’s a raw talent who has managed to keep his edge through thick and thin - and delivers a blistering TYMD. I should probably add that these guys are dear friends of mine, but I swear I had no influence on them creating an amazing version of this song from “A Day at the Races“.

For the full-length version you’ll have to head over to @paul.crook.music !!!

1850s TREASURE
Direct link

This small but perfectly fashioned treasure from the 1850s brought me great joy today. For years I have looked for a stereoscopic viewer with a TR Williams proprietary plaque on it. I knew of two in the world, neither of which were accessible to me. Thanks to my dear friend Dana Kubick, I now know of three, and the third has found a loving home with me. See four parallel stereos, then four crossed eye versions, ... oh yes - a mono ! THANK YOU DANA !

RECOVERING SLOWLY - 18 YEARS AGO - ANOTHER WORLD - EN ESPAÑOL
Direct link

Brian May: Recovering slowly 3 June 2020 - https://youtu.be/-k6AKB4eL70

Hi Folks

Just a quick word - actually managed to get to the Music Room.

I'm recovering slowly. Still crawling around the house on my hands and knees - not very rock star-like.

Amazing 18 years ago I was on top of Buckingham Palace, the loneliest place in the world, and "God Save The Queen" and terrified outta me wits, but one of those times when you face the fear and you're never quite the same again after it.

Anyway wishing you all luck and hopefully one day I'll be functional and I'll be out there and we'll do stuff ... some great stuff maybe. God bless.

GOOD COPS OF ALL COLOURS BRAVELY SPEAK

Good Cops of all colours bravely speak.

Brian May: Good cops of all colours bravely speak - 01 June 2020
- https://youtu.be/N7ZcqSB19P

Thanks Nuno Bttencourt for this clip. My feeling is that the seeds of a new collaborative spirit are here. Showing it’s time to move beyond the violence, and work together for a new deal. Based on equality and compassion. But don’t listen to me - listen to these good men.
