Brian May: “Hand Signed “Driven By You” CD Single”

Categories: , Tags: ,


“Driven by You” is a song by Queen guitarist Brian May. It was written as part of his 1992 solo album, Back to the Light. It was released as a single in late 1991, peaking at #6 on the UK Singles Chart and #9 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart.  Besides the original album/single version, there are three other known studio versions of the song. One was used in a Ford commercial. The second is an instrumental remix of the song, called Driven By You Too. The other known version of this song has a new drum track from Cozy Powell as a bonus track on the US release of Back to the Light.

Shortly before releasing it as single, May played it on the Guitar Legends concert in October 1991, having a super-group backing him: Cozy Powell on drums, Neil Murray on bass, Steve Vai on rhythm guitar, Rick Wakeman and Mike Moran on keyboards, Maggie Ryder, Miriam Stockley and Chris Thompson on backing vocals.  It was released on 6 November 1991, just 18 days before the death of May’s bandmate Freddie Mercury. Earlier in the year, Mercury had urged May to persist with recording the song, telling him that if he did die around the time of its release, it would help boost sales.

This copy has been hand signed on the CD inlay card by Brain May.
