who has been to one of those big queen conventions that i used to read about?
did you like the experience?

many years ago there was one are the 'mercure' hotel in brisbane.
not many people showed up and most people were very quiet, didn't have much of an atmosphere.
they had a decent band playing some queen songs, they were good.
also someone won a pair of roger's drumsticks, and i think there was a message from him too.

one thing that pissed me off were the record shop owners selling queen cds at the convention.
i suppose they have to be there, but i would've imagined most people would have all the queen albums they wanted.
i could understand it if they'd of had some cds other than the usual ones available, but they didn't.

so, any good stories about the convention[s] you've been to?
