See thread "Have you met... QUEEN":

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=384079

I met Roger when he promoted "New dark Ages" with The Cross on a german TV-Show in Cologne in 1991. It was a boring Open-Air-Summer-Show, with stupid games and crap guests, except for one of course - so we were sitting there just waiting for the guy with the sunglasses. Just about 3 Minutes before they entered the stage, they appeared right beside it - we jumped off our seats and stormed right through to the stageside. People seemed to be quite disturbed, but we didn't care. Rog was superfriendly and was pretty stunned that we wore The Cross- instead of Queen-T-Shirts: his first words were "Ah, Cross-Fans. Nice !" He had to sign my Innuendo-Calendar, though... :-)
We had a little talk and then they had to go on stage. Spike also said a few nice words and they all seemed to be pretty delighted that a few fans were there... considering the record sales I can understand that... ;-)
Will never forget these 3 minutes - what a nice bloke, our Rog !

I have one meeting with Brian in Russia. He signed my Queen At The Beeb poster, shake hand and we've talked a little about nothing.

He's very sweet and gentle guy!

Volunteered to be a car park marshall for a charity event at Poole Lighthouse centre last May. In one of the halls Anita Dobson was appearing in The Vagina Monologues. A big grey Merc pulled up round the back and Brian May stepped out. He'd come to watch her from backstage.
So there I was, a huge Queen fan, Brian inside the Lighthouse, and no one but me knew it. Anyway, when he came out i'd got whatever cd's I had in the car (Made In Heaven, Back To The Light and A Night At The Opera). He signed them for me and stopped for a few minutes to chat (and yes, he did ask me if i'd seen We Will Rock You yet). A thoroughly nice guy who didn't seem to mind being disturbed at all.

I met Brian and Roger at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2001 in New York City. I will never forget the handshakes, smiles and laughter (and those gorgeous eyes! YOW!).

I met Brian, Roger, John (+ Spike Edney & Elton John) after the last appearance of the 3 remaining members of Queen.

Date : Paris, january 17th 1997, Palais de Chaillot, after the Bejart ballet

It was a night I will remmeber all my life.

I spoke with everyone at the end of the show. We were only 40 fans. Can you imagine that ?

My story isn't very interesting, but I did get to meet Brian and Roger at the WWRY Musical in Vegas.
