Tie Your Mother Down is a Queen single, written by guitarist Brian May. The song can also be found on the album A Day at the Races. It opens with one of the world’s most iconic guitar riffs.
The performance of this song was a must for every Queen concert and later for Brian’s solo performances (played from 1976 to today). May invented the famous riff on a hill in Tenerife, where he was doing research for his master’s thesis in astronomy.
