Queen guitarist Brian May continues to keep his fans entertained through the third UK lockdown with a series of micro concerts. And the latest sees the 73-year-old showing off the latest model in his Brian May Guitars range. The Arielle is named after the musician of the same name, who the rock legend has collaborated with in the past.
Next to his new Instagram video, May wrote: “Introducing …. The ARIELLE guitar !!! She’s a beaut !! @officialarielle @brianmayguitars Bri.”
While in the actual footage the 73-year-old embarked on an epic guitar solo on his very own Arielle.
He said: “So! Who expected this little beauty? This is the Arielle, finally I have one in my hands.
“And finally I have a moment to play it. This is the new guitar from Brian May Guitars.”
May continued: “Based on the original design by my dear friend Arielle, who will be demonstrating it.
“And I will also be demonstrating it in the weeks to come, so you’ll be seeing quite a lot more.
“But ain’t she a beauty? We’ll be launching properly pretty soon now. If you want details right now please go to my slink in the bio.”
The Queen legend added that the relevant link would take you to Brian May Guitars where fans can see some pictures and find out a little bit more information on The Arielle.
To mark Mother’s Day last Sunday, May posted a childhood photo with his mum Ruth from 61 years ago. Sporting a good old-fashioned short back and sides was a young Brian aged 13.
He wrote: “This is my own dear Mum and me ‘After a dip at Sidmouth, 1960’. Photo by my dear ol’ Dad, Harold May. Yes – I miss them both terribly.”
“Treasure your Mums and Dads, folks. Tell them you love them. Get them to talk about your childhood (and theirs) on video. Right now.
“Ask them all the questions you never asked. Because one day the door will close … and there will be no one to ask. Bri.”
This year is Queen’s 50th anniversary, marking when John Deacon joined as bassist in 1971 and thus completing the final line-up.
Sadly Queen and Adam Lambert’s UK and European tour has been postponed to 2022 due to the pandemic.
Nevertheless, Queen The Greatest has been announced for the band’s official YouTube channel.
Over the next 50 weeks, a weekly mini-documentary on Queen’s highlights will be released on Fridays. Covering the band’s history chronologically, the first one covers Keep Yourself Alive.
