Yes. In places like Africa and the Caribbean. FFS.

Who would you consider knowledgeable? Obama? Nelson Mandela? Marten Luther King?

I hope it's not a serious question. If you mean to say that Queen are predominantly a WASP-band, you're probably right. If you actually think there are no black Queen-fans, think again. Just look up the history of Another One Bites The Dust on Days Of Our Lives and listen to what Roger has to say about it.

Well abc1, that's quite a loaded question.

Of course there are, just like there are some black folk that like country music. Unfortunately the music business does not recognize this but instead use demographics to judge this.

Were Queen big on the Black charts? No, not even during the Hot Space era. Neither was Bob James.

But if you look at the most sampled music used in hip hop, it would be Queen and Smooth Jazz Bob.

So I would say that, most certainly there are black fans of Queen. You just have to interpret it.

Kind of an odd question, I'm sure there's Queen fans of most ethnic groups. Another One Bites The Dust was very popular on black stations when it was released if that counts

HOT TOPIC.

'The March of the Black Queen' is truly one of the greatest Queen records ever. I'm sure it's on many a fan's favorites list.

Does it matter?

Just as, would it matter if they employed a black singer or bassist to play live, as long as they could do the job?

Speaking of that, I'm sure Allan Dias formerly of PiL, likes some Queen.

Well I don't know, but there was a murderer who was being held at a prison nearby to my hometown, apparently he would carve Queen lyrics into the walls of his cell. I gather from this that he was something of a Killer Queen fan.

Thank you very much

In Brazil the colour of the skin and mostly the ethnical background are not linked to musical taste, so that makes the topic seem bizarre to us.

Over here rock is not linked to white people and funk, for instance, is not linked to the black population. I think the fact that most of us are a blend of colors is one of the reasons for that.

Multicolured cheers,

Of course there are. Why not? Black people are people. Queen plays music. People like music.

I'm sure there were lots of black queens at the Sun City gigs.

I knew an older lady who was a teacher. She told me she was a Queen fan and would be interested in attending one of their concerts. She was black. She has now passed away.
