I didn't know that A Day At The Races and A Night At The Opera were silent movies! I wonder how many other facts are skewed?

Wikipedia states that he was working on his PHD in 2005. I believe I heard he got it! I guess he need some thing to do in his spare time. Smart hard working guy! Denis

Default Re: Brian May...Phd in Astrophysics

My recollection is that he was in the Ph.D. program before the band got big, but he left the program to work full-time in the band as things were taking off. It was much more recently, then, (and 2005 sounds about right) that he went back to finish what he had started so many years earlier. Not an easy thing to do.
