May playing his signature Red Special guitar, which contributed an essential part of Queen’s sound.After the famous Live Aid concert in 1985, Mercury rang his band members and proposed writing a song together. The result was „One Vision”, which was basically May on music (the Magic Years documentary shows how he came up with the opening section and the basic guitar riff) and the lyrics were co-written by all four band members.For their 1989 release album, The Miracle, the band had decided that all of the tracks would be credited to the entire band, no matter who had been the main writer. Still, interviews and musical analyses tend to help identify the input of each member on each track. May composed „I Want It All” for that album, as well as „Scandal” (based on his personal problems with the British press). For the rest of the album he did not contribute so much creatively, although he helped in building the basis of „Party” and „Was It All Worth It” (both being predominantly Mercury’s pieces) and created the guitar riff of „Chinese Torture”.
