Queen guitarist Brian May continues to entertain fans in quarantine with his micro-concerts. And the latest saw the 72-year-old play his iconic Killer Queen guitar solo. However, he made an error near the end of his new Instagram video.
May said: “Mistakes are what it’s all about y’know. Ah! I should know.”
The Queen legend also wrote up some advice Frank Zappa once gave him next to the video.
He wrote: “Killer Queen solo, anyone ?!! A slight variant ?
“Frank Zappa once told me ‘here is no such thing as a mistake – if it’s your performance of your own stuff, who can tell you it’s wrong ?!!’”
