Personal Quote:

On being awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) When we were on a tour at the start of early British pop music, people like Brian May were still at school. We gave them the inspiration to want to be in the business.


He was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2004 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Music. See more »
