The Story of the Home-made Guitar that Rocked Queen and the World. This book offers a full exploration of every aspect of this extraordinary, hand-built musical instrument played by Brian May in Queen. It includes rare photographs of the Red Special, Brian and his father, Queen and from the set of the film Bohemian Rhapsody.

In Brian May's Red Special you will discover everything about Brian May's unique, home-made guitar. Brian reveals all, from the guitar's origins to playing on the roof of Buckingham Palace, from Live Aid to the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody to opening the Academy Awards in 2019 where the film scooped four Oscars. All of this is accompanied by original diagrams, sketches and notes from the building of the guitar, as well as a selection of classic photographs including Brian on stage with his guitar, close-ups and even an X-ray. Rare images are included throughout, as the entire guitar was dismantled and photographed for the book.
