Dappy wants a guitar from Brian May
Pint-sized rapper Dappy wants Queen legend Brian May to make him a guitar as he aims to diversify his music style.

The N-Dubz frontman, who is currently promoting his solo music, told the Daily Star that he would absolutely "love" for May to craft the stringed musical instrument for him.

"He told me about his guitar that he made with his dad out of wood from a fireplace in his old house," the 24-year-old said.

"He even got a five-sided coin to put in the neck and he replaced the Queen's head with his own. Now that's his pluck, so I want one with my head on it."

Dappy and May have recently been busy in the studio working on a new track entitled Rockstar and it appears there is a lot of respect for one another.

The star claimed that May told him he was a very unique artist and encouraged him to continue following his path.

In a separate interview with the Daily Mirror, the curly-haired Queen guitarist said: "I couldn't say no to this track. Our genres may be miles apart but we speak the same language."
