I heard a rumour that Eric Clapton once offered Brian somewhere in the region of $3,000,000 and he knocked it back. Would love to know how true that is - maybe Greg Brooks (since he appears to be posting here) can answer that one?
In fairness, just because GB* is now a (freelance) QP associate, he isn't automatically an authority on Brian's personal conversations since the dawn of time.
I'm sure he'd be willing to answer any questions you have about archives. Especially if they weren't questions he'd previously been asked 527 times before.
*This is an abbreviation, not a pseudonym.

Jimmy? That son of his? I wanna see the day that happens...
I'd rather see it burn.
I'd rather hope that if/when Brian leaves this mortal realm that the red special is placed in a secret place so that the Bohemian lost youth of the future can discover it and unlock the mighty riffs which will restore true individualistic music to the galaxy.
Or something like that.
> Sounds like an ideal plot for a musical. You may have something there.
I think Brian has been know to say that he would be buried with it. I hope not, I hope its kept in a museum for all to see and for any future replicas to be based on...
I think he'd take it with him, whether he gets buried, cremated, whatever. That guitar is as much a part of his body/soul as my left foot is to my left leg. Besides, he'll need it to compose more songs with Freddie....
Unless, he makes another up there with his dad! Or, leaves it with his offspring and then when they all die out they get it burried with them and it gets returned to him. Unless, ofcourse, if his children gave it to their children.. Endless possibilities!
