The Queen gui­tarist ex­pressed his dis­gust (or should that be dis-May!) in a lengthy rant on the site once his ac­count was up-and-run­ning again. “I’m usu­ally very care­ful to credit any­one whose photos I post but in this case I must have for­got­ten,” ex­plained the 70-year-old. “So rather than write to me this per­son,

Bar­bara Kre­mer is her name, re­ported me and they not only took the pic­ture down but dis­abled my ac­count.”

He then had a go at the photographer for com­plain­ing about him us­ing the un­cred­ited snap while she has been prof­it­ing from him with­out his con­sent: “You not only took my pic­ture and are ev­i­dently ex­ploit­ing my im­age and mak­ing money off me but you ac­tu­ally stop me us­ing a pic­ture of my­self!” Quite.
