16th-Jul-2007 11:12 am - Dr. May!
LONDON (AFP) - After more than 30 years which he spent as a member of one of the world's most successful bands, Queen guitarist Brian May has finally finished his PhD thesis which he began as a student in the 1970s, The Times reported on Thursday.

May, 59, earned a degree in physics at Imperial College London but after years of studying interplanetary dust, he abandoned work towards his doctorate when Queen took off.

His interest in the subject was reignited when he co-authored "Bang! The Complete History of the Universe", which tells the story of the universe from the big bang through its subsequent evolution, and was released last year.

"For the last nine months, I've done nothing except slave over my PhD, which is now written up, thank God," May reportedly told students at a ceremony at Exeter University in southwest Britain when he received an honorary doctorate.

"But there are times when you really want to give up. There are times when you go, 'Why on earth did I take this on?'"

May worked on the PhD between 1971 and 1974, and kept all his hand-written notes on the subject through the years, finally discovering them in his loft recently.

"People are aware he is here and there is a feeling it is pretty cool that he has come back to finish his PhD, even if he has not been hugely visible," Abigail Smith, a spokeswoman for Imperial College, was quoted as saying by The Times.

The rocker will receive his PhD next May, assuming his thesis is approved by supervisors.

It's that time again, fellow Mayniacs.  Tomorrow marks the 59th birthday of the Guv'nor.  Mine falls on the same day, so I will be surrounded by doting aunts, laughing uncles and taunting siblings.  Yay.

Anyway, what about you guys? Anything special for Brian's birthday?

Greetings Clog Lovers.
I would like to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Dan, I am 32 and I live in the UK. I am a huge fan of Brian and I visit his website for news and views most days. My record collection is Queen dominated and my biggest regret of 2005 was not getting to one of the UK gigs. I would love to meet some new Brian-mad friends, so if you fancy a chat please let me know!
