Speaking to The Independent, May did concede that he would have been the ‘wrong size and shape’ for the Australian band, but spoke of his respect for the inimitable AC/DC sound.
“I’d have probably liked to be in AC/DC,” he said. “But I’m the wrong sort of size and shape, unfortunately. It’s different from Queen. Queen were very eclectic – that’s the word isn’t it? – and we just trampled over every boundary that there was. But AC/DC are in a sense the opposite.”
“They know their style and it’s incredibly pure and I have a great respect for that. And every single note they play is AC/DC completely.”
Brian May and Roger Taylor will headline Sonisphere under the Queen banner later this year, when they will be joined by former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert on vocal duties.Just Published:
