Paying respects to the great bass player Phil Chen.

These blurry pictures of him are from the back cover of my STARFLEET album … which will be next in line for re-release after Another World – coming soon.

Brian May and Phil Chen

Phil was a great chap and a fine player – full of Caribbean energy and joy. He did a great job on my little session – with Ed Van Halen and Alan Gratzer. But he is probably most embedded in people’s consciousness for that wonderful octave-jumpin’ bass figure in Rod Stewart’s ‘Do you think I’m sexy”.

RIP Phil. Fondly remembered for always. Sincere condolences to his family.

Notice in the studio pics here Phil and EVH have playfully swapped guitars …
