Bit of a grammatical thing, and I'm not even sure if it's really wrong or not, but that question has GOT to be answered before I go insane!

What are you referring to?  In the profile?  If so, 'Queen and Me' is correct. You only use 'I' when you're part of the subject of the sentence, and you can test it out by pretending the sentence is only about you.  For example:

"Queen and I are both huge fans of The Muppets".

You would say "I am a big fan of The Muppets.", not "Me is a big fan of The Muppets".  So in this case, 'I' is correct.

Coversely:

"The Muppets made a shitty video for Queen and me".

The Muppets made a video for Queen.  The Muppets made a video for me.

See?

So if that information section was just about you and not Queen and you, it would be 'About Me' and not 'About I".

No, no, you were right. I just felt a little scolded there for a moment.
