“The Fake Brian”
Brian Harold May, was born July 19, 1947. He was the lead guitarist in the famous rock band Queen.
But I'm not related to the real Brian May. I'm related to the guy who pretends to be Brian May.
My Cousin Mike, is the founder of the famous Queen cover band-
If you live on the West Coast, you may have heard of his band. They have also done several shows in Las Vegas.
Mike was able to quit his day job at the health insurance company after Queen Nation had been touring for a decade.
I grew up with Mike. I remember when he was 13 and started taking guitar lessons. Now, he plays the very difficult songs written and once preformed by Queen. If you've ever heard "Bohemian Rhapsody" you'd know what I mean.
The reason we call him "The Fake Brian" is because when our children were younger, they kept asking "why is he wearing a black wig?" Someone in the Family said "he's the fake Brain" and it just stuck.
If you ever happen to see my Cousin Mike; as lead guitarist in his band Queen Nation, or if you know him via social media, please do not tell him his Family calls him "The Fake Brian."
If he texts me, and he's pissed that we call him "The Fake Brian" I'll know, that it was one of you writers, right here on the prose, that told him.
(Lol, but not kidding)
