Is it original? If so, it's really nice from John that he gives autogrphs, inspite of having retired.

Ask Scully. He can tell you if it's real or not. I'd say it's not. Not sure why he'd sign something in 2005 and put Queen on it. I'm def nothing close to an expert though!!!


Wo ist das kamerahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

It might be real since it's very similar to John's handwritting style, but the date could be fake. Though this 'best wishes' I've seen in fan club magazine few years ago - it was printed handwritten New Year's message.

It looks like John Deacon signatures I've seen from good sources, although I'm not claiming expertise.

If anyone sees John on the street would you ask him for an autograph or to take a picture with you?


Why not? As I've heard John is very friendly with fans.

Also regarding the handwriting; this one is definately genuine (if not printed of course ;-) or else an extremely good forgery. Even the 'curve' of writing is exactly the same as my John auto's.

Hard to tell if the 'Queen 2005' is genuine though... I dunno, but I'd say yes.

John signed many items for the 2001 North American Convention (we've got a couple of them)

Nothing for 2002 or the following years.

Using that as an indication, and with 99.99999999% certainty, I'd say it's a fake

Because John didn't sign stuff for the convention after 2001 this is fake?
Thats bullshit. Freddie didn't record a convention song after 1989, Does that mean he didn't sing after 1989?

Brian and Roger haven't done convention songs since '89 as well.

All I could do before was state from personal experience. I 'understand' that nothing for the UK cons have been signed by John since 2001 as well.

There is that remote 0.000001% chance he did sign it. I know I wouldn't touch it.

btw, when there were discussions of Queen doing a tour with a new singer, as time has gone by, the most recent time I said 'yah, sure'

Well, the only absolute is that there are no absolutes.....

erm... I doubt anyone would go to the trouble of forging the autograph of John Deacon (!) It looks totally genuine. Unlike many Brian May autographs provided & authenticated by the Queen Fan Club "back in the day".
