As avid Queen fans, do you guys ever find yourself having to dispell common Queen myths?? Today, for example, I had to explain to a friend that all of Queen were not gay...

Could have fooled me.. ;-)

Yes, but I have to say, way back in 1980-81 I was one of them saying, Oh no.. Freddie isnt gay.. hahahahaha oh boy.. was I wrong.. but.. that isnt my thing to judge.. yet..

I am always telling people that the other 3 were just experimenting :)

yeah I'm always telling people that they were not all gay...

I also am always convincing people that they have more songs than just arena hits

haha same here. it's almost like i'm preaching to them about Queen with all the shit that i know about them (instead of memorizing things i should really learn like what faraday's law is).

have you guys ever converted anyone to Queen? ;)

yep, my best friend I converted, funny thing is he used to be the biggest homophobe around until I started getting him into Queen.

i always have to tell people what songs are queen songs!! they always go to me "queens gay" and i correct them by saying "no, only the lead singer was" then when they say they hate their music, i always ask them if they like WWRY and all, and guess what they say? i love that song! f-wits...

Ah, yes. I almost always find myself explaining Queen to my peers, and sometimes even adults!

To date I have brought over 55 people into the Queen Fold.... Mostly young ones, I start with the obvious songs.. and when they are starting to listen closely I hit them with Queen 2, Sheer Heart Attack, The Game.. and Jazz.. that usually does it..

since i started univ (this autumn), i "queened" a new friend of mine - gave her queen and queen II to listen, my host family...:) the show is still going on
back home in romania people are so narrowminded when it comes to music that i was considered a freak...i still am considered crazily obsessed by queen, but...
