i liked them when i was younger but i was 15 when freddie died so although i liked them i was busy doing other things and its only really in the last 5  years that i have really got more into them and have started collecting all their albums and dvd's

I dont know why it is but the more time that passes the more i think about Freddie and wish that he was still here

That would be Christmas 1974 my older cousin had a copy of "Queen" and "SHA" ,i had never heard anything like it. I had only bought singles before and was more into "Sweet" than "Queen." But once i had got my own copt of "SHA" there was no going back!!!!!!!!

Regularly since '93 or '94. I probably listened to them much early because my father also likes Queen, but in '93 or '94 I remember my father buying Innuendo & The Freddie Mercury Album.

In 1980 when I first heard The Game. I may have only been 2 years old but I remember always hearing my sister playing that album. As I grew older sports took over my life and music took a backseat. Until I bought Classic Queen and then I was hooked for life and went and bought all the albums.

I heard some of their hits in History of Rock class back in 2005. Been a fan since.

BTW, also because of Freddie's 4 octave voice! LOL


I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me-Freddie Mercury

I was vaugley aware of Queen as a child as my mum and dad has 'The Works' and I used to listen to Radio Ga Ga. I loved Bo Rhap when I first heard it in 1991, but what really got me into Queen was when a friend lent me Greatest Flix 1 and 2 in 1992. 18 years and a couple of hundred records latter I am still here.

When I first saw and heard Bohemian Rhapsody on TV in 1975. I went out and bought the single in a wonderful picture sleeve and played my sister's album ANATO to death. The following year I started to buy the Lps and joined the fan club. In 1977 I started to collect everything Queen and my first convention was the day event in London. My first concert (by any artist) was Queen in Brighton in 1979.
Everything else that followed has been a music filled magical journey.

1984: I was 8 years old and blown away by the RGG and IWTBF videos on TV. I remember watching the Boh Rhap video shortly after that, too, and thinking something like: "wow! the guys of the Radio Ga Ga song with long hair! and the singer without moustache! and ... what a great song!"

From that period until 1986 I paid much attention to radio and TV, always waiting for any Queen song or video. And then AKOM was released, my older brother bought the cassette and the world, as I understand it today, started rolling at last !!

I remember those times ... it was fantastic. Every week or so a new album/cassette from Queen entered at home thanks to my bro. The second was Greatest Hits, then Queen II, Jazz, Live Magic, The Works ... I still own those tapes as a little treasure, as my initial contacts with Queen .. as the start of a long, long (very long) love affair :)

1991 - the day that the Innuendo Album was released. My brother played it to me and I was totally blown away. Until Freddie died my brother had the Works, Magic, hot Space and Innuendo on CD. My father had greatest hits 1 and Miracle on LP. After Freddie died I used my pocked money to buy one Queen cd per month.

I got intersted in Queen April 2009 when I went into HMV for an Enrique Iglesias CD. They didn't have it. The gift card was burning a hole in my pocket so I got Queens Greatest Hits Vol lll and got blown away by it. Better late than never! I very
nearly bought the sountrack to Slumdog Millionaire instead. How sad would that have been?
I was around in the 70s - wht's taken me so long to discover Queen???????

2005.
I learned that they made soundtrack for Highlander and wanted to listen to them. The first song I heard was Bijou. Then I bought Greatest Hits III (it was the only one available at time).
And it went on and on and on...
