Not totally conviced by all of those.

How come they are all in the same two pens? and I have a number of signed items myself, some of the signitures don't appear to be totally authentic, sorry, but that's what it looks like to me.

I am troubled by the Brian May and Freddie Mercury signatures looking as though the same person wrote them - especailly the "y's" at the end of Mercury and May. Very much the same.

Nice??? CRAP with capital C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Interesting fakes (I've never seen fakes of early signatures before - most people fake signatures from the 80's for some reason) but the faker has overlooked many signs that make these soooo obvious...
Please people, don't buy this piece of crap!

What looked like a very valuable collection of signed items has now been found out to be just a bunch of fakes. Why do these people ruin perfectly good records like this with forged signatures. Utter madness

For me it was Roger Taylor of QUEEN that made me laugh, you can just see him signing that from ANATO to Hot Space can't you !

Although I´m not a expert, I´d say they´re fakes. I don´t remember seeing Brian sign with a portait. I don´t know how common it is for Roger to write of QUEEN next to his signature, witch is on a QUEEN album. Duh. And as someone just said, the similarities of the y´s are...very similar. I think, fake, semi-decent fakes.

At the bottom copy of "ANATO", there's a paper on top of it... It says "Roger Taylor of QUEEN . ROCK IN RIO 1981"

D'oh !!! These aren't just fakes... these are BAD fakes =)

I must say I looked in the 'Collector's Forum' and thought hmm these early (76ish) look quite nice.

But when having a closer look at the signatures of especially Brian's (that B is totally wrong!) and Roger's (too long and the letters are not in his style at all). They did occasionally draw cartoonlike figures, especially Roger with the QUEEN drawing, which is quite common, but mainly in 80/82.

Conclusion (and I am obviously not the only one): Those are fakes mate.

Terrible fakes - not only the Rock in Rio 1981 error, but also, I am sure that Roger would spell Brazil with a 'Z' - the english way - as opposed to with an 'S'.

1- You could put all that in one topic- it's a chat about one subject.
2- In one of your post you wrote "Bryan"- here, people won't forgive you that.
3- You don't need to be a fan since 1974- you just need brain!
4- You'd better didn't send that pics on the jacket and cap- simply ridiculous!
5- The best place for you and your "spaghetti"- e-bay
Good luck

I would say nearly all of these are fakes, regardless of which hands you may or may not have shaken in your years as a fan. Signatures change over the years, but not to the point of clearly being written by the hand of someone else, as yours are.
