As title suggest things that Queen, Brian John Roger and Freddie actually touched that are out there in this big wide world that still exist...

What queen artifacts that are out there in this world that you can see. Mainly Instruments etc that the band members actually used that that you can see. What are the holy grails that are lost in the world that are out there that are highly sort after?
Anyone got their hands on one of those many tambourines Freddie threw into the crowd during Keep yourself... a Brian May guitarpic or sixpence that will now be worth just that little bit more. Surely Roger threw the odd drum stick into the crowd... any odd ones such as the many hats thrown onto stage that Freddie wore and threw back...

Another sub question...
Did Freddie use or was attached to one Mic stand for an extended length of time or were they just expendible
Did Roger have a fav drum kit or one that he has kept from his Queen days

Didn't one of the first copies of the Red Special disappear after Brian smashed it to pieces after a show?

No, but now I want Freddie's tambourine. If anyone is willing....?!?! (Or, you know, ideally his piano, but I'd take a tambourine!!!)

There must be some piano Freddie played out there somewhere that you can see, surely?!

During a show.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

I did that to a guitar once in slightly less glamorous surroundings. *Shakes fist at Kentish Town Bull & Gate*

The guitar was indeed returned to Brian who asked Andrew Guyton if it could be repaired.

In around 2006 the guitar was rebuilt, but not a complete restoration job. It's original colour was a light sandy maple which has darkened over time. The rear of the body was an almost coffee colour fading to light Gold sunburst. The gold paint used has turned green over the years nd Brian and Andrew decided to leave that as was.

I don't think Brian has used the guitar since the rebuild, he was never a fan of the "improvements" made on the original design by John Birch. The Pickups were not quite the same, the headstock angle was more like a Les Paul and its maple construction gave it a more brittle sound than Brian's home made guitar

At the time it was an important guitar as it was the nearest to his original. Since then he had and used Guild, then Fryer and now Guyton and Fryer copies of his original as either a spare or for drop D tuning.

People forget that we are in possession of the Bohemian Rhapsody 24 track master.

That is without doubt the jewel in the crown.

Correct.

Everything else is invariably second place.

You've clearly forgotten about the Body Language multitracks. Pure gold...

Does anyone know what the proper track number is for the dry Another One Bites The Dust studio multitracks?
I would assume 24. All I've ever encountered are bounced stems.
