Hi,

Just stumbled across the above link whilst browsing. I'm sure that it is probably not, but does anyone know if the 'John Deacon CBE' referred to is 'our' John?? It seems perfectly feasible as Jim Beach is a Trustee, and the site is connected to EMI, but surely this would hvae come out by now, and surely Roger and Brian (and even Jim?) would have also had such an honour also?

Can someone settle this nag for me please?

Cheers

Chris

As much as I would and would not like to admit this, I think it is. But then again, there are other John Deacons in the world.

Hehe... I do find it kind of funny that you refer to him as "our" John Deacon... hehe...

Dont think so check this out http://www.brit.croydon.sch.uk/

Searched on John Deacon CBE

John Deacon CBE is the Chair of Governors at The BRIT School Performing Arts and Technology School. Nothing saying he is the John Deacon from Queen

But The Queen did visit the school.

And both Katie Melua and Amy Winehouse went to this school

Sorry to disappoint you all, but here's the definitive answer:-

'Dear Colin,

Sorry to disappoint but our Trustee is in fact a different John Deacon!
Couldn't comment on his bass playing abilities but definitely not a member
of Queen!

Kind regards,
