A rock and roll education

This headline raised a smile:

Brian May, guitarist for rock band Queen, completes Ph.D. thesis following 30-year hiatus

May began his research of the Zodiacal Light (astronomy) in 1970 and completed his research and thesis in 2007, following a 30-year hiatus to play guitar in the well-known rock band Queen.

Probably not the most effective use of the spacing effect to help reinforce learning but hey, he had a great excuse.
