I am from leicester and i once saw john getting into a silver jaguar at bradgate country park cropston leicestershire as i was parking my car next to him,it was so odd seeing somebody like john a member of queen,who i had only seen on stage just getting into his car after a walk in the countryside with his family,as i was looking he was reversing his car out he saw me and with a friendly smile he was gone.

Should have asked him for money.

I've seen Brian & Roger several times over the years at various gigs, had my photo taken with Brian once at a GnR concert. I can't bring myself to meet Roger as I'll either envelope him in a bear hug whilst saying 'thank you for the music' over and over or I'll vomit on him.

Wow you guys are lucky. I wish I lived in Britain. No seriously I'm planning on moving there when I'm older.

But if I ever saw any of them I'd do like Blue73 said and attack them with a paralizing bear hug or vomit or faint etc...

Only time I've seen them was the day before they played the Leeds gig in 1982. I just happened to be hanging around outside the hotel they were most likely staying at (The Dragonara in Leeds - now a Hilton Hotel) and they turned up.

Roger & John were your typical 'normal' people and arrived and chatted and signed stuff - Freddie's car got stuck in traffic under the 'Dark Arches' (railway bridge next to the hotel) so he got out and walked down the middle of the road & traffic to the hotel much to the amazement of other drivers & passengers .. and his security !!

Brian had gone to do a radio interview so we moved from the hotel to Radio Aire studios to surprise him there !

I have an autographed lp from that day - the signatures have faded but the memories of the band never will

Believe it or not, I was standing right next to John on the loo at the Steigenberger Hotel after their Show in Berlin in 1986... but no more details!
