He's multi-million selling rock guitar god and a rocket scientist. Now Queen's Brian May is an animal activist, too, after turning his estate in Surrey, England, into a wildlife refuge for his Save Me organization. May's place is currently home to 35 hedgehogs, seven badger cubs and two tawny owls, and he was recently honored by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) for his efforts. May said that, "When I'm gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures. I suppose I've lived a crazy life, and watching wildlife brings back a sense of tranquility. Queen is a huge part of my life, but I do have other interests. People know about the astrophysics, but I love gardening, too, and I've always been passionate about the welfare of our wonderful British wildlife." May added that Queen's late frontman Freddie Mercury was also "a huge animal lover. He loved his cats more than anything." May and drummer Roger Taylor are playing some Queen dates this summer with "American Idol" runner-up Dam Lambert fronting the band. The Queen principals also put together The Queen Extravaganza tribute show that launched its inaugural run this year.
