I discovered Queen on Tv, a channel called TMF played the video of Bohemian Rhapsody.

The persons who introduced me to Queen were my parents, they had a cd of Queen wich I "borrowed" but never gave it back hahaha.

And also the first song I heard was Bohemian Rhapsody.

I think the very first song I heard was Killer Queen. I thought it was such a cool sound and I really liked it, but it was when NATO came out and I heard BoRhap for the first time that I was totally hooked. I had to find out everything about that new band and get their three previous albums. I learned all the words to all the songs and just got sucked into the Queen machine! So I guess Queen got me into Queen around 1974.

The first song I've ever heard by Queen was Good old-fashioned lover boy... An Italian radio put it on and I remember I got stunned...

It was an old friend of mine who borrowed me some records... Thank you Simo, you don't know you changed my life forever...

... Too much time ago... **SIGH**

1. By hearing the news of Freddie's death in 1991 and by questioning my mum afterwards and stealing her Queen tapes.

2. My mum.

3. I have no idea, I think Champions because it was played at football games and other sport event all the time. Only later I realised it was Queen. I remember the first Queen video I ever saw though. It was Radio Gaga

1. I got bored with all the music I was listening to, and I asked my mom for some newer music, and she pointed me towards Queen.

2. My mom.

3. Don't Try Suicide, strangely enough. I didn't even hear Bohemian Rhapsody for another few weeks. :)

-How did I discover Queen? - "Another One Bites The Dust" on the radio in 1980.

-Who was the one (if any)who got me involved with Queen for the first time? - Perhaps my father, who explained what some of the lyrics were, including the title.

-Which was the first song I ever heard? - I've already answered that for Queen. But hmm.. the very first song I ever heard... now that's a poser. Probably something by Elvis since my mom was crazy about him.

Incidently, my mom dated a guy named David Houston before he became a (semi) famous singer who apparently opened for Elvis once. What has this got to do with anything? I don't know.

Went to see Mott The Hoople in Stoke in November '73 came away a fan of the support band and been a Queen fan ever since!

Can't remember what they opened with and that would have been the first song I heard but the first studio track I heard was Keep Yourself Alive!

Killer Queen, on Dutch tv show "Toppop", 1974. Me being 5 years old, I did not have any clue who or what they were all I knew was I was completely hyponotized. My cousin, 6 years older than me, then turned out to have all the LP's. All 3 of them. And that's how it all started :)

back in 1974, I became friends with two girls who each had a favorite band (Kiss and Aerosmith, I believe). They asked me who my favorite band was and, liking the song Killer Queen, I said Queen.

Of course, I then had to go out and buy all the records so I could be as obsessed with my band as they were with theirs (posters, fan clubs, etc)

I haven't seen either girl since college...

1) They've always just been 'there', but what first got me into them properly was seeing 'Killer Queen' on Top Of The Pops 2.

2) The d00d who chooses what to show on TOTP2.

3) It seems I have always just known stuff like Bo Rhap, WWRY, WATC, AOBTD, IWTBF, UP, AKOM... etc, etc...


Previously known as 'Poodle Permed'.

Though... then again, I do recall seeing Bo Rhap on some Top 100 Greatest Songs Ever type thing. At number 1, of course.
I was only about six. But I remember thinking it rocked.
