Before heading to a benefit concert, Queen's guitarist Brian May played sweet music with a Koala on his shoulder during a visit to a wildlife hospital in Australia.

Brian May, the guitarist in the legendary band Queen, made the best of his trip to Queensland, Australia, when he visited a wildlife hospital caring for some of the animals affected by the catastrophic wildfires. 

While visiting many of the Koalas that had been displaced by the fires, May struck a special bond with a Koala named Bear, who clung to his shoulder as he played a few chords on his electric guitar.
