Former QUEEN Guitarist Confirms FOO FIGHTERS Guest Appearance

February 8, 2002

Former QUEEN guitarist Brian May has confirmed his appearance on the forthcoming studio album from the FOO FIGHTERS via a posting at "Yes, I put a few brush strokes on two tracks for the forthcoming FOOS album in beautiful Conway Studios in L.A., May wrote. I'm not sure if they want me to divulge the titles but one track is very aggressively rhythmic, and I contributed some 'Get Down Make Love'-type guitar as well as some soloing (the old machine which I invented and had custom-made for doing the solo on GD ML live in QUEEN shows is still around but the vintage harmonizer which it controlled has disappeared, so I can't use it any more. For this session, we improvised with more modern equipment to get a similar effect in fact slightly different so it was inspiring and seems to work well with the track. Of course, it was all experimental and I did it purely because it was fun to work with my great pals the whole group was there plus Gus, their excellent tour manager. They can use it if in the cold light of day the group (or Dave!) think it works!"
