Queen guitarist Brian May hopes he will be remembered as much for his conservation work as he is for being a part of the legendary British band.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, May revealed his Surrey mansion has been turned into a wildlife refuge, and hopes ‘attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures’ will prove to be his most enduring legacy.
“When I’m gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures,” he told the paper.
“I suppose I’ve lived a crazy life, and watching wildlife brings back a sense of tranquility. Queen is a huge part of my life, but I do have other interests. People know about the astrophysics, but I love gardening, too, and I’ve always been passionate about the welfare of our wonderful British wildlife.”
May’s Surrey grounds will act as a rehabilitation home injured and orphaned animals, and is part of May’s Save Me initiative.Just Published:
