Brian May says that had he not had a career with Queen he would have liked to have joined AC/DC.
He adds, however, in a recent interview with The Independent, that his style may not have been right for the Australian outfit:
"I'd have probably liked to be in AC/DC . . . But I'm the wrong sort of size and shape, unfortunately. Because it's different from Queen . . . and we just trampled over every boundary that there was. But AC/DC are in a sense the opposite. They know their style and it's incredibly pure and I have a great respect for that. And every single note they play is AC/DC completely."
He added that his sense of eclecticism likely came from growing up with diverse influences:
". . . when I grew up, we had things like Uncle Mac's Children's Favourites on the radio. And there would be all kinds of stuff on there from 'Thunder and Lightning Polka' to 'The Laughing Policeman' to the pop of the day, with a lot of light orchestral stuff including Mantovani . . ."
