Brian May Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Brian Harold May, better known as Brian May, is a famous, if not legendary, musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, as well as a guitarist, who is mostly known as a member of a British rock band “Queen”. How rich is Brian May? The sources state that Brian May’s net worth is estimated to be $175 million. The main source of Brian May’s net worth, as well as his income, comes from his involvement in the music industry. Born in 1947, in Hampton, England, Brian May began his career with the formation of the band “Smile” in 1968. The band, consisting of Tim Staffell, May and Roger Taylor, who would later become a drummer for “Queen”, lasted for two years and in the meantime recorded nine songs.

With the departure of Staffell and the arrival of Freddie Mercury the band changed its name to “Queen” and recorded their eponymous debut album shortly after. Brian May served not only as a guitarist for “Queen” but also as a backing vocalist. The debut album that produced two singles enjoyed popularity in the United Kingdom. A year later, the band released their second studio album titled “Queen II” but it wasn’t until the release of “Sheer Heart Attack” in 1974 that made “Queen” an internationally successful band. “Sheer Heart Attack” peaked at #12 on the Billboard charts, and produced some of “Queen’s” first singles to be featured on the top 20 list in the US. The album was also a first major transition to “Queen’s” classic sound. This album was followed by an even bigger commercial success by the name of “A Night at the Opera”. Upon its release, the album topped both the UK and the US charts where it peaked at #4 and was certified Platinum three times with over 3 million copies sold in the United States alone. In the early 1980s, “Queen” was considered to be one of the most popular rock bands in the world, with their single “Another One Bites the Dust” which turned out to be the band’s best-selling single, selling over 7 million copies worldwide. “Queen” has recorded and released eighteen albums and sold over 300 million records, which makes them one of the highest-selling bands in the history. Without a doubt, “Queen’s” success had an immense contribution to the overall success of its members.

Brian May’s net worth and annual salary was on the rise as well. During his time with “Queen”, Brian May has been working on several solo projects. In 1983, May released an album on which he collaborated with Eddie Van Halen called “Star Fleet Project”. After Freddie Mercury’s death, former members of the band ventured on to work on solo projects and sometimes even collaborated to perform some of “Queen’s” most famous songs on various public events. Featured on the list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time and ranked at #2 as the greatest guitarist by Guitar World, Brian May had a large contribution to the international success of “Queen”. With the net worth of $175 million, Brian May remains among the richest musicians in the music industry.
