I'm listening to the last Paris show in 1979 and I must say I totally adore it. The power, the creativity, the atmosphere, the setlist,... everything is great.

As much as I love the shows where Freddie's voice is at its absolute best I must say I really feel this one is as good as those.

FM is giving his all and sounds really strong and the rest of the band are just having a ball:-) It feels very different compared to for example Hammy'79 but just as good, imo.

Bring on the soundboard recording QPL:-)

Any thoughts?

I was there. One of Freddie's Royal Family (as he christened us). Those 3 nights in Paris were the best of all the Queen gigs I saw. Wonerful times.

Very nice!

Did you guys (or some of you) make recordings and did you collect newspaper articles? That'd be very interesting:-)

Do you remember anything special from those shows? We know little about the second night since there's no known recording. Do you remember anything about that night?

Did you see any Crazy Tour shows?

Hi, I'm not aware of any recordings being made but that doesn't mean there were none (I think there was about 20 of us that went over to Paris).
Again, no paper clips I'm afraid. I did bring home a big fly-poster and Roger signed one of my tickets.
Yes I did go to the Crazy Tour - NEC Birmingham, 2 nights at Liverpool Empire and Ally Pally, London.
Liverpool was the best (we met them at the hotel).

It's nice to have a member of the "Royal Family" here with us!!! Have you ever thought of getting together with some of your fellow family members to write and publish your stories of your time following the band? I'm sure most of us here would love to read about your adventures.

Hi Jazz, we all met up last year for the 30th anniversary. We haven't really grown up. We just did what we always did. Got completely pissed. Jim's the man to write it up if he ever wants to.
