Andy Timmons Picks The Essential Brian May
Andy Timmons shares his 10 Essential Brian May and Queen songs. Andy has been a lifelong Queen fan, even crediting Brian May with his discovery of harmony while studying songs from A Day At The Races as a young guitarist (a story he shares in this episode for the first time), but it was the recent success of the Bohemian Rhapsody film that inspired him to revisit the entire Queen catalog for a very serious, deep dive. Through sharing his ten essential Brian May/Queen songs, Andy tells great stories about connecting with these songs personally, the talent behind them and what sets these songs apart, the unique qualities of Brian’s guitar tone, playing, and singing, even personal experiences of playing with a 1947 King George Sixpence – the same coin Brian famously uses to play his Red Special.
We close out the episode with Andy’s gorgeous solo guitar rendition of Queen’s You Take My Breathe Away/Bohemian Rhapsody – a MUST hear!!
