The iconic musician of Queen, Roger Taylor posted a recent photo on his official Instagram page and sent his condolences to his old-time buddy, Peter John Chant.

Here is what Roger Taylor wrote:

“So sad for the loss of our trusted friend and accountant, Peter Chant. My sincere condolences to his family. Roger.”

Brian May also posted a new Instagram photo and said R.I.P to his old-friend.

Here is what he said:

“Sad day for us. Funeral of a dear friend. Of course, I can’t go – I’m 4,900 miles away in Houston. That’s one of the penalties of touring. But I’m there in spirit. Peter Chant has been the Queen accountant for so many years – a rock of sensibility and sound advice through all the ups and all the downs of our career.

He handled all the work personally and had a unique style which in this day of electronic light-speed processing is already just a memory. His analysis and prognostication were delivered with wry humor and a characteristic resigned shake of the head. No matter how good our news was, for Peter, there were always grounds for concern!

This is probably what made him the perfect foil for our insane ambitions. While we reached for the stars, he kept our feet firmly on the ground. We will all miss Peter dreadfully. Thank you for your wonderful work and your friendship. Rest In Peace, old friend. Bri.”
