Brian May - Dappy Wants A Guitar With His Face On It

Dappy wants Queen guitarist Brian May to make him a guitar.

The 'No Regrets' hitmaker collaborated with the Queen legend on his new single, 'Rockstar', and used the opportunity to ask him to customise a guitar with his face on it.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I would love Brian to make me a guitar.

"He told me all about his guitar that he made with his dad out of wood from a fireplace in his old house.

"He even got a five-sided coin to put in the neck and he replaced the Queen's head with his own head.

"So I want one with my head on it."

The pair's collaboration came about after Brian praised Dappy for the lyrics to his UK number one single 'No Regrets'.

Dappy added: "Brian bigged me up for my last single and said I should win an Ivor Novello award for lyrics. So I got his email and contacted him. It was a coincidence that track was called 'Rockstar'.

"He told me, 'You are a very different artist and unique, so carry on doing what you're doing. There's nobody else challenging you.' "

The 24-year-old rapper's forthcoming release intends to show the pitfalls of being a star and pays tribute to a number of artists who died young, including Amy Winehouse.

He explained: "It's all about paying homage to the 27 Club and amazing artists such as Amy Winehouse. It's a song

about people getting to their lowest but it talks about turning a negative into a positive."
