2OO5 the return of queen well half of it anyway was my highlight and seeing them in cardiff with paul rodgers is my fave highlight after a 18 year break from the stage.

To see the boys back where they belong was a dream come true for many queen fans and i will remember that for the rest of my days.


Roll on for more in 2006 Here's hoping!!!!.

Brixton gig - not the best gig I saw on the tour but it was just so great to see a version of Queen live again.

Definately Brixton, to be there, at the first night of the tour, knowing that if it all goes wrong this might be the last time to see a version of the band we all know perform together for a full set.

And being there, as part of a vaguely invited audience, knowing that we were only there because of our dedication to the band over the "fallow" years.

Sure it was more polished by the time they got to Hyde park, but that feeling of knowing you are in such a small audience, you can forgive the od mistake, Plus when we led Brian away from the set list to sing '39 was awesome.

The highlight for me has been the great people I've met at the shows in the UK, the Caribbean, and the US--many of whom post here and on QOL. Thanks you guys!

Queen at the Hollywood Bowl and the smile on Brian's face when he was playing with Slash. I predicted that there would be a guest appearance and thought either Slash (Brian May Band opened the European leg of the GnR tour) or Eddie Van Halen (Starfleet Project).

Next was seeing WWRY at Paris Las Vegas. It's hard not to have a good time in Vegas, baby.

Bringing the first Brian May Honeyburst guitar into the USA. I'd seen it in a UK magazine, but it's more impressive in person.

2006 Highlights:

Queen in San Jose, CA.
The first Mini-May guitar in the US!
