The headline makes sense when you learn that Brian May has been knighted by King Charles III. May’s new honor was included in the U.K.’s annual New Year’s Honors list. He was recognized for his contributions to music and to animal welfare advocacy. May responded to the honor by saying he hopes the knighthood will give him “a little bit more clout.”
That was tongue in cheek, of course. May is known globally as the guitarist and songwriter for the band Queen, but his interests are wide ranging. He has long advocated for animal rights, and founded the organization Save Me in 2010. He is also an astrophysicist, stereograph collector, gardener, and a member of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists. As such, May already has plenty of clout. Just ask the millions of Queen fans who followed them in the 1970s, witnessed Live Aid in 1985, discovered the band via Wayne’s World in 1992, or saw the movie Bohemian Rhapsody in 2018. -via Fark
