I know it seems small, but for me, one thing I really enjoy and just love is that aside from the change ups in bass players in the early days, they never had any line up changes. I tend to loose interest in bands who have had lots of lineup changes So, I just love Queen for sticking together.

I admire their education levels, they were a smart bunch of guys! An arts student, electrical engineering student, and an math and physics degree holder working on a doctorate! (Forgive me, I can't remember Roger's area of study.)

Most rock stars can't remember their last bong toke, how many can say "I was working on my doctoral thesis in infrared astronomy."

I must agree with the fact that they were/are a smart bunch of lads and that they stuck together for such a long period of time. Had Freddie not died, I think perhaps in 2000's they would have been doing a farewell tour. They had such amazing chemistry together.

I agree! PauL Rodgers is a great singer and I think he did a fine job with "Return of the Champions". BUT its as if Freddie, Bri, Rog and John were "Made In Heaven" so to speak!!

Here's some random John facts :)

-->He played the triangle on Killer Queen
-->His microphone was turned up louder than Brian and Roger's at the '77 Earls Court gig (by accident)
-->Brian asked him to play the double bass for '39 as a joke, and was astonded when he walked into the studio 2 days later to see John had already mastered it
-->He sings backing vocals on such songs like Tie Your Mother Down, In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited, Liar and Somebody to Love
-->He is the creator of the famous Deacy Amp

(I just love the triangle one! My music teacher thinks its the hardest instrument to play because if you don't time it right everyone will hear it!)
