Hi guys, I'd like to know which item from your Queen collection , not specially the most expensive ones, but the items that you apreciate the most because of what they mean for you or because they are very hard to find, etc.
Mine are the tickets from Wembley'86 and Knebworth. This was the closest I've ever been to Freddie because I'm just 24 and was only 6 when he rocked the world for the last time.

Mine is pretty rubbish but it's these 2 videos i have with every queen documentary taped on them. I feel like i have my own mini little archive.

And my Greatest Hits 2 CD cause it was the first Queen album i bought.

Probably Hollywood's 1992 Greatest Hits CD. It's one of the least expensive Queen items available, yet I'm personally responsible for 'I Want To Break Free' being added to it, so I always remember that :)

I am not a Queen collector but a Queen lover . I love Queen music first of all.It is always in my mind no matter what might happen around me.Secondly several gifts a very special person has given to me through the years because of their emotional value to me, and then my favourite Queen LP record "Queen II" , a masterpiece (both the music and the visual concept) which is always in my heart.

Well, and if concerts are to be included in this list, but of course I will always remember the one that they gave in Puebla, Mèxico on 17th October 1981, at the Zaragoza stadium.WOWWWWW!!!!

Queen rocks!!!

The most special item I have is the ticket from the Tribute concert for Freddie.
Unfortunately, I was not there myself since I was just 5 years old when Freddie died.

I have 3 extra special Queen things in my collection. The first is the picture I have of Brian and me, taken so *very* long ago. It's funny - we both have long curly hair (though I don't anymore), and we both have cool/funky printed shirts on...you'd think we planned it :o) The second item is the autograph he gave me that day.

The 3rd is a Queen concert tour program (from the Works era). It's special to me because of the person who gave it to me - he unfortunately is no longer with us.

memories
...real ones...in real time...., gigs, tv shows, music press, radio shows, pictures, interviews, albums on release day....the list goes on...growing up with the band, and having them there...all the way from 1974 (and starting 'big school') ,to my son being born (89)

and speaking as someone who had most of the official rarities (on vinyl)....no material item can ever replace genuine real memories
