QUEEN lead guitarist Brian May is looking at the possibility of a tour with drummer Roger Taylor

“I hesitate to say this, but it may happen,” he said. “As soon as we appeared with Adam Lambert at the VMAs, the phone started ringing and it hasn’t stopped since. There are an awful lot of people out there who would like to see that package, so we may do something. But I’m not going to say what it might be!”

Brian, now aged 64, said he still found it hard to believe Queen had reached the 40 year milestone.

He said: “It’s amazing, I don’t know where it goes, all sorts of scrapes have happened. But what’s amazing is that for a band that’s been without its singer for 20 years, we’ve been more active than ever.”

Brian said a follow-up to stage hit We Will Rock You was also waiting in the wings.

He said: “Ben Elton has written a sequel, which I think is magnificent. I guess what we don’t have is the time and the right moment to put it on yet, because We Will Rock You takes up a lot of our time, we’re a victim of our own success.”
