Degree(s): Pd.D. in Mathematics and Physics, Imperial College London

Brian May, the guitar player of the rock band Queen, has got more in common with “Sir Isaac Newton”, than just his looks, as both hail from England and excel in physics and mathematics. From 1970 to 1974 May was studying ‘reflected light from interplanetary dust and the velocity of dust in the plane of the Solar System’ at the Imperial College in London.

However, he couldn’t earn his PhD, since the fame of his rock band Queen rose to stratospheric proportions, due to which he had to put his studies on hold. He re-registered for his PhD at Imperial College in 2006, and managed to graduate in 2008. He may be a rock star and a guitar player for one of the leading rock bands of our generation, but that didn’t stop Brian May from getting a higher education. He is an inspiration to many people, who think that just because they have come across success, they should put a hold to their studies.
