Smile band May formed the band Smile in The group included Tim Staffell as the lead singer and bassist, and later, drummer Roger Taylorwho also went on to play for Queen. The band lasted for only two years, from toas Staffell departed inleaving the band with a catalogue of nine songs.
Smile would reunite for several songs on 22 December The result was " One Vision ", which was basically May on music the Magic Years documentary shows how he came up with the opening section and the basic guitar riff and the lyrics were co-written by all four band members.
May composed " I Want It All " for that album, as well as " Scandal " based on his personal problems with the British press. For the rest of the album he did not contribute so much creatively, although he helped in building the basis of "Party" and "Was It All Worth It" both being predominantly Mercury's pieces and created the guitar riff of "Chinese Torture".
His other composition was " The Show Must Go On ", a group effort in which he was the coordinator and primary composer. This album was supported by a major tour. They subsequently went on a European Toura world tour over and and, most recently, Festival Tour.
Side projects and solo works[ edit ] Duringseveral members of Queen explored side projects. On 21 and 22 April in Los Angeles, May was in the studio with Eddie Van Halenwith no intentions of recording anything; the result of those days was a mini album entitled ' Star Fleet Project ', which originally wasn't going to be released.
May contributed to former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett 's album Feedback 86playing guitar on the track "Cassandra" and providing guitar and vocals for "Slot Machine," which was co-written by May.
Although produced inthe album was not issued as a commercial release until May worked with his second wife Anita Dobson on her first album, in which she sang vocals to the EastEnders theme tune.
In this form, the tune became the song " Anyone Can Fall in Love ". After the tragic break-up of any band, it feels impossible to continue but I was really glad that Brian did launch a solo career. He had such a lot of music in him and a great deal more to give — Joe Satriani  In the aftermath of the November death of Mercury, May chose to deal with his grief by committing himself as fully as possible to work, first by finishing his solo album, Back to the Light and then touring worldwide to promote it.
He frequently remarked in press interviews that this was the only form of self-prescribed therapy he could think of. Personally, I know it ripped the heart out of Brian, but having said that, he was in great spirits after the album was finished.
An earlier version of the band was loosely formed for 19 Octoberthe date of the band's last concert of reunion, when May took part in the Guitar Legends guitar festival in SevilleSpain.
The original line-up was May on vocals and lead guitar, Powell on drums and percussion, Michael Casswell on guitar, Neil Murray on bass, and Ryder, Stockley and Thompson on backing vocals.

The University of Turku in Finland on Wednesday announced that it was terminating the employment of astrophysicist Christian Ott, who last year resigned from Caltech after an investigation found that he’d harassed two female students. “I have considered the matter and decided that the employment of Dr Christian Ott to the University of Turku will be cancelled,” said Kalervo Väänänen.
This version of the band lasted only during the South American support tour supporting The B's and Joe Cocker on only five dates. May brought guitarist Jamie Moses on board to replace Mike Caswell. The other change made was in the backing vocals department, when Ryder, Stockley and Thompson were replaced with Catherine Porter and Shelley Preston.
After the tour ended on 18 DecemberMay returned to the studio with fellow surviving Queen band members Roger Taylor and John Deacon to work on tracks that became Made in Heaventhe final Queen studio album. May subsequently changed the approach from covers to focus on those collaborations and on new material.
