Recently there has been a bit of talk about famous people who can speak languages very well. The Queen Members were not mentioned however i'd like to know what languages did the Members learn.

You seem to generate questions very fast. Do you ever try to do a research yourself?
The only thing I can tell you is that Brian knows Spanish and Roger knows French.

Brian often tried to learn enough of a language before going to that country on tour so that he could do TV interviews in the native language instead of having to rely on a translator.

Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and Japanese come to mind.

Yes, Brian´s spanish has always been quite acceptable. His knowledge comes from his days studying astronomy in Tenerife, the Canary Islands, in the early 70´s, I believe.

This is a little known fact, but Brian and John are both longtime Star Trek fans and are fluent in Klingon.

qrock is just trying to make the site more interesting.  He appeared after the Queen Archivist's outburst that the site has become very boring.

I don't know..... I just have a habit to search myself for what I need to know. And when I can't find it- then I ask other people for help. In many cases Google is enough to find what you need without extra fuss.

Well, since it's for a research project, we should probably mention that all four were fluent in English.

Did someone say that qrock has made this site more interesting???

Good one.  Heh heh heh.
