I was watching "I won't back down" video clip by Tom Petty with the members of Traveling Wilburys and I thought I saw Brian May from Queen as a guest guitarist in the video of the song. If not who is it?

Do you have a link to the video you were watching?

My guess is that it's either Jeff Lynne or Mike Campbell...they both look quite similar to Brian May.

I am pretty sure it is ELO front man Jeff Lynne as he was a constant songwriting contributor to Petty's albums in the 1980's.

I also think he was the producer to that album.

Lynne produced Full Moon Fever, Into The Great Wide Open and all the Traveling Wilburys albums.

And he's go that bitchin' white-man 'fro. If I were to guess, though, I'd say it was probably Mike Campbell. He's has more than a passing resemblence to Mr. May.

Mike Campbell is also one seriously underrated guitarist...

I looked up the video and the answer to your question is "NO, it is not Brian May". That's Mike Campbell, along with Jeff Lynne, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

If I was smarter, I'd link the video here to back up my claim. Of course, if I was smarter I'd probably be doing lots of other things than wasting my time here. crazy happy
