well it proves young people (or teenagers) can have decent taste in music.

although a lot of youngsters seem to go through a "rap phase"

I hope it's good, as I'm in the younger generation.

So many people my age are obsessed with rap and hip-hop, and I had a mainstream music phase, but nothing compares to classic rock, I think.

I'm 16 and damn proud to be a Queen fan. The younger generations help to keep this wonderful music alive through the years

I'm 18 and since I was 5 Queen has been part of my life so... I think it's good, at least to me cause my life wouldn't be the same without Queen.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

Indees! I think it's great that younger people are getting into Queen instead of shit acts like Eminem. I have loved Queen most of my life! I'm 21 by the way.

I think it is terrific that younger people are listening to Queen. I am 16 now, and I only discovered the true wonders of Queen a year ago Monday. It helped me break free from the trash circulating todays radio airways and discover the full potential and true meaning of music. Queen has helped me set a new standard when I chose different bands to listen to. I share my Queen experience with all my freinds in hopes that they will discover what music should and can be, when done properly and with passion.

I'm 35 and I am both proud and impressed that younger people are into Queen. My 14 year old son thinks this Earls Court concert is "wicked awesome". I concur.

Definately, I'm 13, but before I told my "peers" about Queen and showed them some of their music, most of them had never even heard of Queen. Sadly although Queen is my favorite band, not too many people (my age) in my area appreaciate Queen's music or know a thing about Queen's history. All they listen too is mostly rap crap. :(

I am 14 and proud to be a Queen fan. They offer something hard to find, quality entertainment with a meaning. So as long as that's what people are looking for there age doesn't matter.

God, all of you make me feel older than dirt! (LOL)
ANY age is a good age to discover Queen. I'm glad you did, you made an excellent choice!

I'm 17, and I've been raised on classical, jazz, and classic rock music, so I was fortunate enough not to go through a "rap" phase and I'm extremely proud to be a Queen fan. In fact, I've spent a lot of time introducing many of my friends to Queen and have created a sort of cult following among my peers, which is cool. The ones who "don't get it" or think it "sucks" are usually just narrow-minded homophobes who have been brainwashed by the media into thinking that old music is crap. Sad really, but there are still a lot of people my age who love Queen and that's a GREAT thing.


I think this calls for a little "Bohemian Rhapsody", gentlemen.

I've always loved old(er) music. I'm been a fan of the Beatles over two decades since they broke up, over a decade after John Lennon was killed.

I've only been a Queen fan for a few months, and I'm 16. Grew up listening to classical music and stuff -- now I'm in love with all things classical rock. Far better than today's pop crap.

Yes, most definitely, it is VERY good that younger people are fans of Queen, even if it's by accident! There are sad accidents (becoming Marilyn Manson fans) and there are happy accidents, and Queen is about as happy (gay?) as you get! (ha!)

You people spreading Queen joy via word-of-mouth are doing god's work, btw... good on ye!

p.s. the happy/gay joke above is only an innocent play on words made by me, a gay dude. Don't be dim and try to make it into something ugly, 'cuz it ain't!

Peace!
