Brian Cant, but Ronnie Wood

Brian May of Queen bears an uncanny resemblance to James II. Furthermore, it is not commonly known that May is a keen amateur astronomer and first saw Freddie Mercury, in 1972, through the lens of an optical telescope, amidst the constellation of Orien. Another interesting piece of May-related trivia is that he constructed his famous guitar using parts from an ironing-board. I found this to be ironic, as I constructed my own ironing-board entirely from a Fender Telecaster Electric Guitar.

John Wayne, Dick Tracey, Ariel Sharon - are clearly all from Essex.
