I had to smile when reading of Brian May’s action against his neighbour for causing a noise nuisance (‘Proportionality principle slashes rocker’s costs claim’). I recall being disappointed not to be able to attend one of Queen’s late 1970s concerts in Knebworth Park.

Fortunately, I was able to listen to it anyway. I was working that day as a lifeguard at an open air pool. The pool was at Stanborough in Welwyn Garden City – five miles away.
