I am collecting pictures for a new book on Queen. I am after pics that are NOT available for download in Google-searches or the like, but more rare pictures. I have a few, but need more, and of course, full discression will be guaranteed and the proper credit written in the book. The book is mostly for my own taste as a huge Queen fan, as I am currently studying to be a graphic designer and have access to printers and off-set equipment, the printers with the capability to cahche in matte and shiny laquer. This will make for a wonderful book, and when the proper clearance is given from the fanclub and/or the members, it will be put up for sale through ExLibris or BooksOnDemand (BoD) in Germany. I hope this is posted in the right forum and a lot of people will respond. Please send pics to queenpics@mcdanish.dk, an email made for this purpose, and mcdanish.dk is my own domain so no other than I will see the emails/pics. Preferably in a ZIP/RAR file with a corresponding info on who you are and what your motive is, is it a pic you took at a Queen concert or other happening, when the pic was taken and where.
Keep on Queen-ing ;=)
Benny, vice president of the unofficial Danish Queen fan club.

Well, I should have foreseen this and sorry for doing that. I have no way of proving any of my claims/plans, and I did not think Queen fans would be like this. I guess I was awfully wrong. Please close the thread, any moderator out there?

But Mr May gave him permission to take the photo, this then becomes David’s right to use that photo how he likes, he can sell prints on eBay if he likes and it becomes his property not Brian Mays.

Love this. Anyone got any unseen Queen stuff or even better, unheard material? If so will you send it to me.

Cheers.

Moreover, any celebrity with half a brain knows that their fans would happily use a photo taken with them as avatar, Facebook profile, poster on their wall, etc., and of course Dr Brian May PhD is clever enough to realise that, and kind enough to allow his photo to be taken, developed and used in innocent non-commercial ways such as a Queen-related internet forum.

I've seen ridiculous counter-arguments here, but this one takes the biscuit.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
