Smart Music

Word is that Queen's guitarist just earned a PhD in...astronomy.
Listening to their music, I always knew these guys were smart--they play progressive rock, after all. They have also been extremely successful (We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, etc. etc.)
But I never knew one of them was so scientifically inclined.
This link describes his technical PhD thesis in just a little more detail.

It's all coming together now - my physics teacher in HS had a song for us about F=MA which she pronounced fuh-mah (instead of mama) and it was set to bohemian rhapsody. Interesting.... :)

I have always liked music with intelligent lyrics. Queen was one and Indigo Girls was my other favorite for those references to classic stuff.
