We used to have a chap called SuperTrouper who said he regularly used to play Brian at pinball.

Mind you, he also used to have conversations with his feet and hide from jam jars, so I'm not sure we can really take his word for it.

New someone who was in Madisons Night Club in Newcastle in 79, he was very drunk so decided to crash out in one of the booths that looked on to the dance floor. After a while he noticed that people were looking at him and so he became very very paranoid. It wasnt untill later that his friend told him that people werent looking at him but at Freddie Mercury and his entourage in the next booth.

Great Stories Guys
Talking about Clubs I was told John Deacon would get very embarrassed whenever 'Another One Bites The Dust' would play in a Disco that he would get paranoid and Hide his Face..I wonder Why?
Funny Thing he Is! Modest.

That's really cool. I'd love to meet them, haven't had the opportunity yet though. And even if I did get the chance, I'd probably do something really embarassing, so I guess it's all for the best if we never cross paths.


Playful as a pussycat.

Yes I understand I needed a Drink before I got the Courage to Talk but they are only Human and very kind
I think when you stalk them it becomes a problem but they will say Hello... they are constantly on the move especially Brian

Lol, I think so too... Although I'd like to meet them more than anything else in this world, I probably couldn't talk, or would just burst into tears because I'd be too happy and too excited to do anything else.. Except maybe babbling some non articulated sounds.


Give me a good guitar, and you can say that my hair's a disgrace, oh, just find me an open car - I'll make the speed of light out of this place...

I have never met any of them on account of that I wasn't alive... It would've been awesome if I did though!

Meh, the closest I got to even meeting Brian was about 4 e-mails I've received from him (two personally, two public)

I've met Fefe Dobson though, on a related subject. I have a photo of me with my arm around her, and she auto'd my copy of her first album (first edition too, not the current edition with "Don't Go (Boys And Girls)" - that last one looks like the back cover was poorly printed, sadly - I'd rather buy the single instead, because it has a b-side that is only available otherwise on one of the UK editions of her album)

One of these days I'm going to post the photo, once I can get my computer working again and get a proper scan.

I met Freddie once in 1996.
It was very cool and he signed my Made In Heaven cd which was released a year ago.


Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Why people have to destroy Queen fans Topics I don't understand especially when your a Fan yourself if you have something to say keep it real!

You keep posting the same thing with your comments and I was just wondering what you mean by them? (One turd, Two tits...etc.,?)
And on the subject... No, I have never meet any of them, and I don't think I could.?

<<...one dump...one turd...two tits...John Deacon...
...one prawn...one shrimp...one clam...one chicken!>>

That's the adlib that Freddie was doing during the making of One Vision. Although I still think it's one dump...one turd...to fit...John Deacon but under the guidance of one of the old Seers on this board it was changed to 'two tits'...'John Deacon'.

i met Brian on his tour of Australia in 1998, I had a photo with him and he signed a few things for me, pretty cool guy and tall, i think i pissed him off a bit as he left into the hotel after our photo i shouted to him, (next time bring john and roger with you) he turned around and said to me why would i want to do that for. He said it in a way which didn't seem nice but maybe that was a wrong perception from me.
