First name in real life: Erica

Age: 17

What you do for a living: Student... babysitter (FUN!)

First introduction to Queen: Oh GOD. Well I've always liked them and apparently, when I was very little, I begged my dad to get me the Wembley cassette tape. Eventually we got the video and the CD. And that was around when I was 4 or 5. I was a very smart, young child. And I remember singing versions of "We Will Rock You" in Kindergarten and that would be 1992.

Country you live in: USA
What you had for breakfast this morning: an Eggo chocolate chip waffle

Shoe size: 7, 7 1/2

Other favorite groups: Aerosmith, The Doors, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles

Favorite Queen moment: Oh GOSH. Err... Queen 2. That was their best moment. And then at Wembley, during Bohemian Rhapsody after the operatic part ends, the crowd is literally BOUNCING and Freddie smiles.
