My personal item I hold dear is a letter written to me by Brian. This means alot to me as being a huge fan of Queen and Brian being my favorite and being a guitar player on the rise, myself.

IMO...The Red Special, without a doubt. But there must be plenty of choice...I'm sure most people wouldn't mind Freddie's crown or some other item like that...or perhaps Freddie's Bechstein of Bo Rhap fame...what about the original 'Deacy' amp? In fact even the smallest, most obscure item would be quite something!

Wow tho that is so amazing that Brian May wrote you a letter...an actual letter or an email? What did he say? Wow that must be really special!

Brian's bunny slippers from I Want To Break Free.

Freddie's Yellow jacket.

John Deacon....the actual John Deacon....

That hat that I've seen Roger wear quite frequently in the 70's.

But any little thing would be good. Just to say I own a piece of history.

it was an email and a very nice one at that. I "cheered" him up and was glad to hear i was "makeing them have it" reffering to my band and talent show, where i did a 10 minute 53 second rendition of brighton rock...very nice performance I must say looking at the footage but I was so impressed coming off stage caue I thought I could have done better. I also did Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit!
