Queen's Brian May Finishes His Dissertation: PhD in Astronomy
Congrats to rocker and physicist Brian May of the band Queen for completing his dissertation and receiving his PhD in Astronomy. As I was perusing an academic journal just now, I came across this bit of news and, of course, I had to post this. Neophilologus, the journal, posts:
"Guitarist for band Queen, completes his PhD thesis.
Brian May, the guitarist and founding member of the legendary rock band Queen, earned his PhD in astronomy last year from Imperial College London. His PhD thesis has just been co-published by Springer and Canopus Publishing Ltd."
Tip of the hat to Brian May for finishing a dissertation. Getting a PhD is no walk in the park. As, I'm sure, performing "We Will Rock You" to sold out stadiums would be either....
