Give up!! Build Your Own Boat!!! Brian chose that as the the name!! Good thing Freddie decided against it!! Guitarist Brian May introduced Freddie and Mary, at a discussion about the group. They were trying to choose a name for themselves. Freddie wanted to call the group Queen, while Brian favoured Build Your Own Boat. 'I remember Freddie's massive black hair, which made him look like a cavalier, with his arm resting on the mantelpiece of Brian's house in Barnes. He was very proud of his new white shoes. Suddenly he turned to me and asked what I thought about the names. I said, "Oh. I think Brian's build Your Own Boat." But Freddie got his own way, as he did with most things. They settled on Queen.




I love you,Beata!

IMAO! Very funny! It doesn't hav a very catchy name does it? Queen makes somebody want to say who is Queen? Build Your Own Boat sounds like a How 2 book on how to build boats!!!

'Build Your Own Boat' sounds like an album from the Shins. :P

Or it could be my knock-off of the band 'Be Your Own Pet.'


I'm so pissed I could spit.

Oh for fuck's sake.

DO NOT ASSUME THAT SOMETHING THAT IS NEW TO <<<YOU>> IS THEREFORE NEW TO EVERYBODY.

The mere fact that you found it on the internet suggests that someone else already knew.

This is not specifically aimed at this thread, but at all you tweenies who hyperventilate at your keyboards every time you find a 40 year old picture.

"What if the band was called "build your own boat"

We would have threads saying "Build Your Own Boat are not Build Your Own Boat without Freddie"



I do not want any google ads here.
