Legendary guitarist of Queen, Brian May posted a new photo of himself on Instagram with a heartwarming message.

He uploaded his photo, and wrote a special letter to his fans as a way of saying ‘special thanks’. Brian wrote:

“…Some of you were beautifully complimentary to me, as a person who inspired you – much appreciated. Some of you told such heart-wrenching stories of the hardships you’ve faced I was deeply moved and inspired. Some of you told how our music got you through hard times.

I just wanted to thank you ALL for trusting me with your inner thoughts – amazingly inspiring for me. And I selected a few special messages which I just had to reward as ‘runners up’, so I’ll be attempting to send you all a signed glossy QUEEN programme from the most recent USA – as a way of saying ‘special thanks’. Phew ! Cheers folks “

He also wrote:

“It’s a nice sunny day for signing stuff. Lots of signed BM guitars going out today (from the last tour !), some fine Queen Items for Jacky for the Fan Club auctions etc . … and I’m making a present of some of the limited edition Vinyl 12 inch NEW HORIZONS singles to my esteemed colleagues in the NASA NH mission team. But this one is for the winner of my ‘Inspiring Post’ challenge.

The winner is @martian.marshmallow whose post was simple but has stayed in my head ever since – it sums up the way I feel things ought to be perceived. “NO BORDERS – JUST HORIZONS”.

So as soon as I can get an address for Martian, this record will be on its way over. (My dear office manager Sally is trying to make contact through DM with a few of you out there so I can send this and other gifts.) To be honest it was Hellish hard choosing the most inspiring post.”
