I met all of them in 1982 at Crazy Eddie's record store in Manhattan during an in-store visit before they were due to play that night. I got all of their autographs. I asked Brian if he could build me a guitar. He said someday!

Yes, several times under different circumstances.

ALL of the times were very memorable and enjoyable. If you ever get the chance, enjoy the moment and be respectful to them.

I played guitar with Brian in Frankfurt 1998... :)
He gave a guitar workshop then to promote 'Another World', and I was one the five lucky participants.
One of my dearest memories indeed.

Then I met him again twice, briefly, backstage in Offenbach '98 and at Freddie's 60th at the Dominion in London.

I met Brian as he was signing autographs after the 1st USA show of the '06 tour in Miami.

He came out of the limo, signed some autographs, didn't say a word, got back in and they drove off.

There were only about 15 of us around as it was about 2 hrs after the show. He signed about 5 autograps.

2 people I've always wanted to meet are Clint Eastwood and Brian May. They just seem like very cool and down to earth people for as popular as they are.

Well I met Brian and was disappointed. I said, "Glad to have you back in the states." and he didn't even look up. I'm sure he was wiped out after the long show and it was very late at night.

But, that doesn't mean that I still can't be dissapointed. I've never met him before and will never meet him again that's all.

Yes - met Roger twice, once at Happiness? CD signing in London, and once at The Cross Mad:Bad... signing in London too. Both times he chatted very amicable for as long as was possible with loads of people waiting in line!!

You played See what Fool I've Been with Brian, isn't it? Could you upload that video again? It was so cool to see that!

Did Brian recognise you those 2 times after the workshop?

I met Paul Rodgers after the show in Paris. He was very kind and humble and we talked for a minute or so....if you can REALLY call that talking :D

Same thoughs here. Paul was very very friendly.

We where waiting at the gates after the Frankfurt gig (in total 5 persons). Suddenly we saw a silver mercedes driving our way (instead of turning left to enter the road, like all the mercedes cars did)

We thought, "well now someone is going to say we have to leave or something"

But what happens? Paul Rodgers steps out of the car chatting with us for about 5 minutes about the show and things like that. Following, his wife asks us if their is anything we would like to get autographed by Paul. "I'll make sure he signs it all" she said.

After about 10 minutes we left the Frankfurt gates with all our stuff (tickets, programs, Bad Company records etc) signed.

Amazingly friendly people!

At WWRY I was standing by a door waiting to give my ticket for my seat. The door opened and out walked Brian, well I was so shocked that I gasped really loud and everyone in the foyer looked at me, including him!! So at least I managed to gain his attention somehow XD

My cousin called out "How you doing Brian, my son?"

Then Brian kind of grunted and put his thumb up as he walked past. *Ah memories* XD

Basterds! ;) I was waiting at the back enterance of the Ahoy in 2003 (i think) and another fan was waiting at a door where he had given some singles to sign to a security dude.. after a wef minutes he came back with them.. signed and shiny. That is as close as I ever got. Crappy part is that I didnt have anything with me to sign aside from my ticket, and I wasnt inside yet. :(
