No he doesnt still have the house there.

In answer to the original question...Yes I have met both of them (several times) and Ive had the pleasure of meeting Freddie and John as well.

These were all a long time ago & many a picture has got lost along the way as well.

Have met Roger and John, sadly not Fred or Brian,
Roger in Tottenham Court Road going to the WWRY show for a rehearsal and John shopping in London.

Yes, after the Lisbon show.
While some annoying fans went to meet Brian and Paul in the backstage for the Meet and Greet for about one hand shake and a quick smile, I had a good hint in what hotel they could be at.

So I drove there, entered the lobby like a filthy rich guest :) went to the bar.

I had to wait for about 10 minutes. Roger came and we had a drink and a 10 minute conversation (no photos, no autographs, just the sheer pleasure of meeting your idol). Roger was kind and truly cool.

When I was leaving the hotel, I still had time to meet Brian, shook his hand and chatted for about 3 minutes...

One of the best nights of my life. ;)

I met him... and it is quite an incredible story...

I live in Argentina, and at the begining of the year, my father told me that in april, we were going to visit a textile exposition that was going to take place at the PALEXPO in Geneva, Switzerland... I suddenly realized that Brian & roger were on tour... and started investigating about dates... I could not believe that they would be playing in Switzerland (Basel) by the time I would be there.

I didn´t hesitate and bought my tickets! I made my father and brother go to Basel before going to Geneva.

After the show, we went to a McDonalds and then back to the Hotel... When we arrived, I saw Brian getting out of his car!!!! He was staying at the same hotel I was... I went and told him the show had been awesome. He answered like a gentleman, and told me he had to go inside te hotel because they were expecting him... (I was quite shocked because that encounter.... and a little bit scared about his security guards =P so the only thing I could do was to get into the hotel after him, and go to sleep... while he was there at the lobby... =(

It is not necessary to say I could not sleep...

So well... that´s how I met brian... I think It will never happen again (unless he decides to come to Argentina...)

But at least I had the possibility of meeting him once last april 10th.

goodbye!

They are real diamonds though. ....And I was very a lucky girl to have had a hug off Roger(big grin..) .
