Rick Beato with Brian May on “Bohemian Rhapsody”

I can still remember being awestruck upon hearing this remarkable song on the radio the very first time... 

It still sounds as fresh and perfect today, 46 years later.

Brian May is of course the genius guitarist, songwriter, and arranger for “Queen” — but he’s also an Astrophsyics PhD and built his first guitar at 16 with his electronics engineer father. One of the more interesting musicians in rock history — more on him later.
