May 25, 1998: Brian May releases “The Business”

Queen guitarist Brian May went into his home studio after the completion of the last Queen album, Made in Heaven, to start work on a “Heroes” concept, recording his favourite tracks from his favourite artist.  However, the idea soon mutated into a full album, Another World. Some of the covers found their place on the album, whilst others were released as B-sides to singles.

Joining May were drummer Cozy Powell, who died in a car accident before the album was completed, and his ex-Whitesnake band mate, Neil Murray, on bass.  Guitarist Jeff Beck and singer Ian Hunter also guested.

BRIAN_MAY_THE+BUSINESS-118063The Business” was released as the lead single in tribute to Powell.  Watch a fan made video on the taxirock YouTube Channel.
