Brian May - Coolest Nerd Ever!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a crazy obsession with Brian May.

He's a majestic Swan

He's not only the guitar player for the best band (scientific fact) on the planet: Queen.
He's also probably the biggest nerd ever, and that makes him extremely cool in my book.

Man?...or Mystical Winged Creature?

 He built his own guitar (The Red Special) out of wood from a 200 year old fireplace (wood that in all likely hood came from some ancient magical tree) and various other bits of scrap material including:

motorbike valve springs
saddle bag holder
knitting needle
mother of pearl buttons
an oak table

Wearing what I can only assume is an Elven Cloak


He's also a Scientist!
He has a PhD in Astrophysics and has written texts including:

MgI Emission in the Night-Sky Spectrum (1972)
An Investigation of the Motion of Zodiacal Dust Particles (Part I) (1973)

And most recently in 2006, a comprehensive book on the complete history of the universe called: Bang!

Pirate Chic?


Not cool enough yet?
Did I mention he's friends with Robert De Niro!?!

De Niro is controlled like a puppet by a 
lever in the back of his head

So there you have it...COOLEST NERD EVER!
