Anybody here listened to Queen before saw them?
So, I imagined: They had 4 people...
Lead singer (Freddie): Blonde English lead singer with ruffled head of hair.
Guitarist (Brian): Curly black hair with moustache.
Drummer (Roger): N / A
Bassist (John): Black hair with a hairy hands :D

I first looked at their image at sing365.com + queen biography. And thought Freddie was Roger, Roger was John, and John was Freddie :D.

when I first heard them it was about three seconds before I saw them because I couldn't see the TV screen...but my first thought was a big hairy lead singer - how right I was

I always knew what Brian looked like, and Roger too, but I always imagined Freddie as being a hairy, darker haired version of Mick Jagger. I wasn't too far off the mark really. As for John... I don't think I really thought about him.

I always figured they looked kinda like KISS, only w/out the makeup. But that was before I saw the actual band.

I saw their picture in the Greatest Hits I LP a friend of mine had in 1979. I thought, what a bunch of dark dressing, somber, serious guys. Ja, was I fooled! But I loved their music from the begining.

I thought they'd be ugly. I listened to CCR long before I saw pictures of the members, and I was quite disappointed. Same with The Byrds. And Sublime were ugly. too. I thought they'd all be more attractive. xD Shame on me.

I was pleased with Queen, though. :P Same with Zeppelin and the Beatles. And a few other bands. I wasn't personally attracted to any of the members; but I won't deny they looked good. :D

Good question. I really don't remember ... I think I pictured them as some sort of Led Zeppelin wannabes.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

First time I saw them, I genuinely thought they were French - no idea why. I also thought that Brian played in the Alex Harvey band (clown make-up) as well as Queen.
Saw them live in 82 at Ingleston - actually third time but first time close-up. Struck how immaculate they were in terms of appearance! Then Fred invited everyone to shower with him because the venue was 'like a bath-house!' - I was seriously terrified at that moment (tender age of 17!!) - no way was I showering with Freddie Mercury!!!! How stupid was I? D'oh

I was an odd kid. I didn't picture them as people, but, as a kind of purple and blue cloud.

Roger: Can I go To Lunch Now?

Brian: No, You Can't...

i had the greatest hits cd and it came with a booklet with pictures, so i already knew how they looked, i just didnt know who was who, except for freddie, bc he was the guy with the moustache and who looked like my dad. i just got the rest of the band mixed up by their voices. when i heard im in love with my car, i thought it was brian, and when i heard '39, i thought it was roger singing. and then i didnt know where the fourth person fit in since he didnt sing.

Your dad looks like Freddie Mercury!!!??? Boy, you're lucky!!! My sister always said that my dad looked like a much, much, much fatter version of Enrique Iglesias (since my daddy is porky). And we're Russian!

haha...i did the same thing with "Let Me Live"...when Brian was singing, i could only see that voice coming out of Roger, and i was really disappointed that Brian had a raspy voice.

i imagined Freddie a lot like how he looked in the earlier 70's with the longer hair, only without all the eye shadow, and without the teeth, and just less distinctive features altogether. as for the rest, i had NO clue.

Heh. The first time I heard Queen was in my cousins car. He tended to play them a lot when I was a kid. I always imagined that the vocalist looked like Niall Quinn. The football player. I think its because Quinn and Queen sounds quite similar. Stupid I know. Kinda miss those adventerues times though. Every time I saw a clip of Queen is was amazing. heh...
