Brian May.

I sent him an email on his website and he personally responded to me via my email account (very cool). 
Surprised me.  I was expecting him to just post it on his website.  He said he didn't get a chance to see
either of the London concerts, but he did met up with the band.

Jimmy Page attended the first London show and had a great time.  Paul gave Jimmy his original
painting entitled "Crossroads" (a portrait of Robert Johnson).

That would be KISS + Special Guests Queen.

How's "The Royalty Of Rock" World Tour sound?

If they could get Brian May to dress up as Ace Frehley, then hell yes.

I meet up with other managers in my field all the time as a professional courtesy. Sometimes even because I like them as a person. Doesn't mean I think they do their job all that well, nor does it mean I would want to work alongside them for any extended period of time.

You sound like you're a joy to work with.  Perhaps you're just an ass kisser?

Anyway, Brian May likes KISS and the members of KISS.  Sorry if that disappoints you.
I saw a picture of Brian at Gene's birthday party at a bowling alley in L.A.  All smiles.

Roger was friends with Paul in the '70s (due to a mutual friend).

Eric Singer toured in Brian's band and played with Queen (Brian and Roger) a few times.

Mutual admiration from both sides.

Skip, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but I really have to question this one...

I saw a picture of Brian at Gene's birthday party at a bowling alley in L.A. 


I would pay MORE money than a Q+Whoever Ticket to see Brian perform an actual athletic event.  He strikes me as about the most uncoordinated person ever.  Sure, he's got the dexterity, but the rest?  I don't think so.  Can you imagine Brian in a pickup basketball game or something?  Please!!! 

I would assume that Brian would have to use a very lightweight ball, maybe an 8 pounder or so.  And by the time it got to the pins, they might have enough resistance to bounce the ball back towards Brian.

Gene's birthday party during the "Revenge" era (somewhere between 1992 through 1995).

Can't remember if the photo was online or in a book/magazine.  If I find it I'll post it.

To hold you over ...

Well, you're going to be very tired.  That's the only photo I've seen of
that birthday party.
