I've been lurking for a while and thought I'd step forward. What am I doing here? I've just rekindled my adolescent infatuation in a certain rock band called Queen.
Q struck it's chord in me when Freddie passed and many rockumentaries and tributes were shown on TV. Didn't know anything about Q before then. My mom liked FM (great pretender, barcelona, born to love you, etc) so naturally my brother and I didn't, but we had no idea that freddie was the singer of queen!
Seeing those rockumentaries made my brother and I very interested. We soon had GH1, GH2, followed soon by SH, folowed by Q1, Q2, ANATO, JAZZ...and onwards. When we got live killers the disc didn't leave the CD player for months. Our first true fandom!
Within a few years I'd over-listened the catalogue and bootlegs, and gradually waned away tio other great discoveries and fandoms.
..Until 10 years later, I see an article that queen are back touring. I called up my brother in Sweden (whose never been to a rock-concert), and we'll be in the Golden Circle on July 8 (Thanks ebay)! We'll also be in the Dominion on the 7th, just to build a bit more exitement!
Not that its needed, tho - reading posts here has done a good job, and last weekend I went out and bought Wembley, Bowl and WWRY DVDs, and my girlfriend hasn't seen me since then. Anyway, I've taken up too much of your time with my tale, so lets just say: July 8th!!!! See you!
