Yes, I wrote to him in September 2018 about the OST for "Road Games" appearing on his official YT channel. It was spotted by John S Stuart, and he (John) wrote to me about it, seeing if we could do a bit of detective work together as he didn't think it was our Brian, but the Australian composer.
I wrote the following to Brian, but have had no response. However, said content seems to have been removed from his channel.
hope you are well, and recovering from your recent tour.
I have a wee question for you, which concerns the OST for "Roadgames" (1981) - currently available through your official YouTube channel.
This has thrown up some confusion among some Queen fans, as IMDB lists the soundtrack as being by the Australian composer Brian May and not you. IMDB also lists a short "lecture" video about the movie, on which said Mr. May is a speaker alongside the director. The question simply is....was this recording actually you? (Sorry this seems like a daft question as it's on YOUR YT channel, and I assure you the question is not out of ignorance)
Ovbiously you will know what you recorded and what you didn't, but this upload really has set the cat among the pigeons as it were, and a few of us are genuinely confused (we had been unaware of the movie and OST - and IMDB hasn't helped the issue)
You have a very distinctive sound which, with the utmost respect, doesn't scan on these recordings. We know that musicians will often change styles, experiment with new sounds etc and so that would have settled it - but this is where the timeline throws us! The movie "Road Games" was released in 1981, which would be shortly after "Flash Gordon", but also during a massive Queen tour between 80-81 AND recording for Hot Space. That's quite a workload!
Again, the question is not out of ignorance or disrespect. We had been debating whether or not you had full control over your channel, and whether you knew this had gone "live"?
Could you please clear up the confusion and give us a little insight into the recording, how it came about, the style you used and the timeline?
As I say, no answer from Brian (yet), with online searches throwing up some confusing answers.
To date, IMDB still lists the OST as being Australian BM, however Wiki lists it as being our Brian.
