Queen guitarist named chancellor by British university
LONDON (AFP)—Queen guitarist Brian May has been appointed chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University in Britain, they announced Monday.
May, whose band hits include "Bohemian Rhapsody," will start the job as honorary head of the university in February, when he takes over from Cherie Blair, wife of former British premier Tony Blair.
"Yes, I will be celebrating tonight. How? With a delicious vegetarian roast and a glass of choice dessert wine!" May said in a statement released through the university.
May was awarded his doctorate in astrophysics in August. He started the PhD in 1974 but ditched it when Queen's fortunes took off before returning to his studies last year.

Sigh. I wish all our celebrities were as smart, level-headed and responsible. He even sounds like a vegan!
