Yerevan /Mediamax/. Brian May, lead guitarist of the rock band Queen, said that Djivan Gasparyan was a legendary musician.
“I was honored to work and play with Djivan on more than one occasion - notably at Nelson Mandela’s Arctic 46664 concert in 2005. We played the famous piece which Djivan co-wrote for the Gladiator movie along with the great Hans Zimmer.
He was a gentle man and very generous. Seemed always at peace with himself and with the world. Bless him. RIP Djivan,” Brian May wrote.
