Booklet

Brian May (1992)

In den Liner Notes des Booklets der CD bedankt sich Brian May auf ganz persönliche Art insbesondere bei seiner Familie und seinen Freunden:

To my Dad for making my guitar with me. It should just see me out.
To Dick Denney, for designing the AC30.
To Jimmy May for keeping me clear about how cool I’m not, Louisa May for pet care and control, and Emily May for sunshine every day. (Jimmy, Louisa und Emily sind Mays Kinder aus 1. Ehe, Anm.)
To my dear Mom for keeping Allerton Alive.
For persistent friendship, much appreciated, Tom Short, Nathan East, Steve Ferrone, Rick Wakeman, Steve Vai, Paul Rodgers, E.V.H., Elton John, Axl, Slash and the Def Leps.
To Joe Satriani for a magnificent guitar which makes its debut on Nothin’ But Blue. [...]
And to my lady, Anita Dobson, for having the faith that I could fly.
This album is dedicated to Harold May, Alfred Dobson and Freddie Mercury. And to all those loved ones we have lost too soon.
