Have you ever noticed that if you observe something as silly as these forums for a bit, you start to see that there is more than one type of Queen fan? Well, I've taken an objective analysis and catagorized all Queen fans into their rightful place. Try and see if you fit into any of them...... ;)

1. The radio play 'fan'-
You know, the people who say "oh yea, that one group with that one song that's all WEEEEE ARRREEEE THEEEE CHAAAAAMPPPIOOOOONNNNSSS." But ask them the name of the singer and they'll scratch their head longer than a fat man scratches his balls during the third inning.
2. The greatest hits aficionado-
We all know who these people are. (In generality of course). These people are the ones that have every type of greatest hits, or just one and play it until it crumbles with the woes of overplay. Also, if you notice, when asked what their favorite Queen song is, they will reply with something such as 'Killer Queen' thinking that not stating WWRY/WATC will make them seem more of a sophisticate of the music itself. Or even better, they recite all their favorites in order of the GHits list. However, they are appreciating Queen, so who can hate them for that? At least they are trying. :)
3. The polite, emerging fan-
I think this is more of stage, but some people never seem to grow out of it. I love these fans because they are just getting into the greatness of Queen, yet they are still learning of more great songs that leave them at the most polite, friendly manner because lord knows getting ridiculed by someone who knows their stuff would suck. Bad. ;)
4. The quoting frenzy fan-
These people know their Queen, but show it through constant quoting of songs. It isn't bad. As a matter of fact, none of these are bad, and I'm not speaking as if I'm so arrogant (but it may come off as that). However, quoting songs by Queen becomes really annoying. Fast. Nevertheless, they know their Queen.
5. Collectors Items snob-
You know who you are. lol.
6. The weird fan-
Anyone who is a Queeble should be stabbed. In the face. Ok, not the face, but these people are insane, and have no life.
7. The chill Queen fan-
They know they know more than anyone else, but they don't flaunt it ridiculously, or bash others for not knowing. These are the best, because discussing Queen with them is wonderful and insightful, yet they don't bash say, a Ghits fan. :)

*******

Which one are you?
Cheers

I think I'm a chill Queen fan. I would be a collectors item fan (but not a snob, of course!) if I wasn't so broke. ;) I could be a quoting frenzy fan, but then again, I quote every band. I'm equal opportunity when it comes to song quotes!

i think you missed one out

the - down to earth just loves the music fan

these guys do not cow-tow to every thing that queen did - just because "it's disloyal" to say hot space is shit, these people do not think that four minutes of FM belching into a mic would still be opus dei.

and most importantly, if they disagree with someone on any musical issue they say so - they are honest and do not court peer popularity for the sake of being a sychophant

- and that's what i am proud to be

Susan and I are each 'Brenskis' (shouldn't that be a category?;-))

and generally 'chills'.....but will let the hammer fall where need be

oops, guess that's another category, too.

Howz abouts a 'bachelors degree, working on a masters, but will never be a PhD' as some of the much more astute fans are?

And we're glad they're around.

I sad to admit that I'm somewhat of a Greatest Hits Aficionado. Though I'm somewhere in between that and Polite Emerging Fan. I own other CDs, but I only like the good songs, and those good songs happen to be on the Greatest Hits albums. Sort of confusing but oh well... :D

I'd say I'm a chill Queen fan
And also, I don't know whicj category it is, but I'm the kind of fan which apreciates everything about Queen, but I wouldn't think that it would be rude to say ``Hot Space is shit´´, because it's just what people think...There are some songs of Queen that I don't like, so what? i'm still a fan! Fans AREN'T obligated to like everything about Queen, etc. !


Friends Will Be Friends; Life without friends is like Rock n' Roll without Queen.

Fans don't have to like everything, but we appreciate the effort nonetheless.

I think that's me...oh...and sorry about me going off on Robert Smith...if you all remember I said when I started that topic, that I do in fact..like The Cure..I just didn't like that Bobby thrashed my Queen..oh I better chill...

and I don't have to listen to Queen to do it, I might even listen to...The Cure.... or The Allman Brothers or Christina Aguilera...you all get the point. Or I could go to Chilli's Restaurant...little USA humor there!

I think I am between polite, emerging fan (there always will be people who know much more than me) and the down to earth, just loves the music fan.
