Poor old Brian May was under 24-hour security watch after being given quite a scare by a resident of Crazy Town. A deranged man, who claimed that HE was the real rock star and May was in fact an imposter, announced he was setting off to murder May. The charmer wrote a letter and left it behind at his home blaming the Queen guitarist for all his bad luck in life and then disappeared. He signed the letter "Brian May”. Police were involved, May was understandable very distressed and it was a bad day all round for everyone involved on this day 4 years ago.
