Since someone brought up the subject of teenagers, it made me wonder if there are any older people out there who have only recently become diehard fans?

I'm an old fan, but definitely not a new fan.

Damnit, Janet! Knock off all that old fart speak. By the way, I have something I want you to hear next time you feel like popping online.

That's a start. I would like to know ifthere's at least one other person who was sentient during the 70's, but a little slow off the mark in coming to their senses about music! It was only 2 years ago for me!

Robin!

Bullwinkle, I had no idea you were so old. You don't seem like it.

So there's an insult and a compliment at the same time. I'm 33 and feel about 70 at the moment.

Question is - which part is insult and which part is compliment??? I'm not sure I want to know the answer to that.

Im 38 myself. Seen Queen 7 times live. 5 times in the USA and twice in the UK.

I consider those the best concerts I have ever seen beside Led Zep at Madison Square Garden.

Seen Aerosmith 4 times and The Rolling Stones 5 times, Bowie 6 times and The Clash 5 times too.

Love em all.

Of all the lead singers Freddie was always the coolest and at times (the dirtiest)anyone who has seen him in his unitard knows what I mean! LOL!

Remember the red and white TIGHT shorts.....yes!

Gotta love em!

Kriz ;o)


Long Live Queen!!!

Holy shit, Kriz!! I don't care too much for the other bands and I kind of got used to this little feeling of jealousy of those who were lucky to see Queen live but you've also seen The Clash 5 times??? They're my favourite band besides Queen! I met Joe Strummer in Brooklyn in 2002, just 8 months before he died. He was the nicest guy you could meet. But it didn't really make up for all the Clash gigs I couldn't see.
:-(

When did you see The Clash?

You're a lucky person, you know that, don't you?
;-)

Just to add something to the topic, my mum is 50 and is a huge Queen fan. She's actually the reason why I've become one.

My mum is 67, likes Queen a lot, met Brian & Roger (and got their autographs for me) and came with me to see Brian at Hammersmith on the BTTL tour.

My Dad.....hates anything newer than Patsy Cline :-s
