During the lockdown, Brian May has been sharing his covers of well-known hits on his Instagram account. And now the 72-year-old has unearthed an old video of himself as his alter-ego TE Conway performing Conway Twitty’s It’s Only Make Believe. The Queen guitarist wrote: “Performed here some years ago by my close relative T. E. Conway.”
May added: “Ah, those were the days.
“Can’t tell you how much I empathise with this wonderful song.
“Look – my dear old friends from the Brian May Band are here. Thanks guys !
“Thanks MaryF.3D for posting. And thanks to the guy who captured this moment on video. Bri.”

- Queen and Adam Lambert Tour Watch Party announced for THIS weekend
May adopted his “support act” of TE Conway for the 1998 tour of the Brian May Band.
Back in April, the 72-year-old remotely performed a cover of The Beatles’ Get Back with Gary Barlow.
Posting a video on his Instagram, May wrote: “Lockdown jammin’ with my neighbour !!
“Mesdames et Messieurs ! Je vous presente —- GARY BARLOW !!!”
The Queen guitarist continued: “We got together, but only virtually, to pay tribute to the fabulous Beatles, and hopefully raise some smiles out there.
“Get Back ! Of course there is no way to get back today – to where we once belonged – only forwards to a New World.
“But this simple Lennon/McCartney song is immortal.
“So you could say this is where #thecroonersessions meets #jamwithbri – for your pleasure !”

Before the coronavirus pandemic hit, Queen and Adam Lambert were set to be on the UK and European leg of their Rhapsody tour.
However, the dates have been postponed to summer 2021.
But in the meantime, the band have announced the Queen and Adam Lambert Tour Watch Party this weekend.
A statement read: “While appreciating that it won’t be the same as seeing them perform live, the band instead are providing an all-access pass to a specially compiled show of highlights from previous tours on the day that they would have played their final O2 London concert.”
The band are working in association with YouTube for this special Queen and Adam Lambert Tour Watch Party.
The hour-long special will be available on Queen’s YouTube channel for 24 hours from 8pm BST this Sunday, June 21.
The show will feature standout live performances from their tours across the world.
One of the highlights included will be when the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders joined Queen and Adam Lambert on stage for a rendition of Fat Bottomed Girls.
