'Wish I could've been there’ Brian May's frustration that he couldn’t help Taylor Hawkins
Queen legend Brian May spoke on the bond he had with his "brother".Taylor had died in Bogota, Columbia, in March while on tour with his group, aged just 50 - and Brian, who had been one of the last of his friends to speak to him, revealed that he will be sorely missed.Brian's second solo album, Another World, will be re-released imminently for the first time since 1998 and it contains a track with Taylor as the drummer.This prompted him to address the history of their friendship and how he felt about the loss."God, I wish I could have been there to help him through that, whatever it was," Brian exclaimed of his demise."[When] Taylor stepped in to do a track, [he] gave me a wonderful injection of energy, friendship, joy and light - and [now] he's gone... which is awful," he lamented.Brian confirmed that the collaboration had been one of the first album sessions Taylor had ever done."He'd only just joined the Foo Fighters, he was just a boy really and he was the biggest Queen fan in the world, which took me by surprise," he recalled fondly.He added that Taylor's endorsement of the group had introduced them to an even wider audience and made them "very cool to a lot of people"."He was an encyclopedia about Queen, absolutely incredible, he knew everything we'd ever done," Brian added in amazement."He became like a brother.
