Hi, I've just joined QueenZone... great place!

Has anyone here ever met Freddie or someone close to Freddie (Mary Austin, Jim Huttin, Peter Freestone, etc)?

I'm only asking because I only wish I could have met him!!! He died before I was born, though...

I have nothing to add to the initial question but within 2 weeks, your opinion stated in the above quote will change considerably.

I am also to young to have met him but my uncle did in 1988 at the Olypia antiques fayre. He got my grandma a autograph and she gave it me just before she died, my prized possesion.
My uncle not being much of a Queen fan just said how small freddie looked compared to on stage. He must have covered his illness up as he was into full blown aids then wasnt he?

I met Jim Hutton at the convention for the last few years

Seemed a nice enough guy

Spoke very highly of John more than Brian and Roger

This thread is just inviting balmy responses, I know it, like the man who met Fredie-dressed incognito as a pizza delivery man- in 1996.

Hello and welcome, my dear! I'd never met Freddie, or Mary, Jim, or Peter. I would have been neat to have met Freddie. My mom saw Queen in concert in 1978 at the ud arina though. That's in dayton Ohio and she can't remember what Freddie looked like, but it's all good. Smile. His voice is so beautiful. It touches my heart.

Lucky you! I don't know why you had a discussion here, but personally, I'd loved you tell me more about that meeting with Freddie :)

I did. Only once. Like 1 Minute only. in 1986 in leiden....But i have seen him with Queen 97 times, and then solo in Ibiza and Barcelona, and i was at the Time musical in 88. But my best memory ( besides the birth of my daughter) is the 1 minute i had freddie all for myself, and had a chance to look in to those warm hazelnut brown eyes...he wasn't THAT big, as i am 6ft 4"...but he had a grandeur and charisma that was awesome....He tried to bluf me away, wich didn't quit work for him....and then he took off himself, and disappeared into his dressingroom....a girlfriend of me who was in his dressingroom at that moment later told me i had scared the shit out of him....obviously he hadn't thought i was THAT tall...as he was always looking down on me from the stage, and i was looking up...so when we finally did meet at the same standing-level, it was him looking up, and me looking down...that was a strange experience! But i will cherish it till the day i die....

THE GAME TOUR DALLAS 1980 AND THE LAST TIME THE ROCK N AMERICA TOUR DALLAS AUGUST 21 1982, THEY WERE GREAT, ESPECIALLY TO SEE THEM MATURE AND CHANGE IN LOOKS ESPECIALLY FREDDIE WHO WAS ALWAYS WITTY AND FUN. I AM AN OLD QUEEN FAN JOHN IS TWO YEARS OLDER THEN ME.

Wow, you're a lucky guy. I can only *dream* of looking into those eyes.But I do find it odd that you were told you scared him, I mean, I've seen footage of him with his bodyguards (and Brian!) who were all over 6 feet tall, he didn't come across as the kind of person to be intimidated by height-after all he was in awe of Montserrat and she is tiny! In addition, he wasn't that short himself was he? Maybe he was just in shock that you'd been to almost as many Queen concerts as he had!!! Anyhow, it's a great memory to cherish and I hope you hang on to every second of it :)
