I've never seen that picture before. All I can make out is Brian with his arms in the air? Is any other Queen member there? I can't seem to see. And all those other people in the background. Interesting...

I guess there are no other band members, because this was about Brian's generosity and the fans. I guess it was in As it Began, where I read that during the band's party he heard that there were fans outside having their own, so he decided to go there for a while. But I might be wrong. Serry? :-)

To be honest - that funny man in white clothes near Bri is John.

It was in South America, but can't remember if it was 81 or 85. Shortly after Brian and the lady in white jumped in the pool, according to a newspaper article i read at the time. I'm leaning in favour of 81.

You´re right, Lester Burnham, it was taken in Rio ´85. Bri was stood in front of a swimming pool,as you can see and was ready to jump into it...and he did :)

See ya!

I think Brian was pushed but he also jumped too. That was a party in Rio in 1985.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?
