The quirks of celebrities are nothing new. I've told you about the other Kim K. buying up Blackberry phones, or the celebrity that could infect your computer with malware.
I'm sure you also know of the infamous Miley Cyrus incident last year, and other celebrities that wind up in the news. And Queen rockstar Brian May is no exception.
May was scheduled to fly from London to L.A. to perform at the Classic Rock Awards this year when he reportedly refused to let his one-of-a-kind guitar to be put in the cargo hold of the plane.
The Red Special, May's guitar that was built by him and his father some 40 years ago, has been credited as a key part of Queen's signature sound. May reportedly didn't want it treated like just anyone's luggage, so he did the reasonable thing.
Brian May bought the Red Special a nearly $16,000 first-class ticket to sit in the seat to him. The guitar was too big for the overhead bin, so there was no choice but to buckle it in beside him.
"It was the only option so he made sure it was treated to the full VIP works. There are few things in Brian’s life that he is as passionate about as his guitar," said a source close to May.
The full VIP works? I wonder which first class meal entree the guitar selected, or whether it preferred white or red?
