Win: Brian May’s Red Special ‘The Story of the Home-made Guitar that Rocked Queen and the World’ by Brian May and Simon Bradley

Brian May is a bona fide guitar legend and ever since his early days in the world of music there’s been one thing with him every step of the way; ‘Red Special’ the guitar he built himself with his Father way back in 1963.

He’s used the guitar on every Queen album and in all of Queen’s live shows around the world, from the the roof of Buckingham Palace, to Live Aid, to the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and beyond.

A new book written by Brian with journalist Simon Bradley tells the fascinating story of the guitars history accompanied with original diagrams, sketches and notes dating from the building of ‘Red Special’, as well as a fantastic selection of photographs including close-ups and x-rays of the priceless guitar along with shots of Brian in concert.
