Mr. Deacon, I want to make you a very special offer. In exchange for a 5 minute interview (your choice.. phone, video conference, whatever) with me, I will pay you the sum of $25 U.S. dollars! You will not find another offer like this anywhere, I assure you.

I wish to ask a few things such as:

- What are your true thoughts on the way Queen has conducted themselves since your retirement?
- Do you actually visit strip bars?
- What would it take to get you back in the studio or on tour?

I hope you will take my offer under consideration and contact me at insanejeff@gmail.com with your decision. Thanks!

*please attach a current photo and hold up a sign saying "It's really me Jeffrey" as proof of identity

1) John Deacon wouldn't for 25USD even scratch his ass
2) People like you are the reason for his retirement - LEAVE THE MAN ALONE

This reminds me of when Lorne Michaels was doing his schtick on Saturday Night Live about reuniting the Beatles. :D

Wasn't it $3000 he offered them? They could divide it equally or give less to Ringo...their choice. ;-)

Not true! Why, I spoke with Freddie just the other day via PM. Very friendly guy.

In all seriousness, I believe I read once that John Deacon used to lurk and occasionally post here under the name "The New Opposition" or something to that effect.

I can't see any reason why you shouldn't get a reply, espescially with the level of intelligence involved in the questions, i.e Q2, which I'm sure he would be more than happy to answer. Keep checking that inbox!

I wonder if he listens to the fans' covers?

I seriously doubt John would be interested in answering such questions....they border on "contemptive rudeness" if you want my two pence...

Once upon a time, long long ago....he DID actually frequent several Queen realted fan sites/message forums. He spoke of it a couple of times, and Roger's assistant Crystal told tales about such goings on as well. I think people here would be surprised if they realized how close they may have come to "speaking with greatness".

So kids, remember to always mind what you say......you just never really know who you are REALLY talking to now ...are you?

An open offer to John Deacon:

I will pay you the princely sum of £33 if you come to my house and play Another One Bites the Dust in those fabulous shorts showcased on the Wembley DVD.

I will charge people for entry, and give you an additional negotiable % on a pro-rata basis.

Hell, I'll also throw in a cup of tea, and a bag of liquorice allsorts!

Look forwards to hearing from you!
