even if It was real... I wouldn´t like to have an autograph that wasn´t made specially for me...

By the way... Brian HATE people who only get near to him to ask an autograph or takes pictures... he say that he prefers fans who look to his eyes... shake hands... and even have a chat... instead of "looking at damn pieces of paper all the time"... literally.

I understand him... if I could met Brian... I don´t gonna ask him a sign and run without saying nothing... is PATHETIC...

Nice chat man.

just to add that if you read the auction it says its a reproduced autograph.. so yeah.. its fake..lol.. I mean it may be his actual signature.. but scanned or copied of sorts..

yeah.. that FM album signed was a hoot.. Brian had a good laugh about it..

Brian is a good humored man.. Someone once was selling an Air guitar signed by Brian May in Invisable ink.. and all Brian had to say was not to cry to him when it went out of tune.. lol

It's a preprinted fake.

Yeah, it's nice if Brian prefers fans who want to shake hands or have a chat BUT!!! I've met Brian like four times so far and almost always there were like 20 female fans around him. Impossible to shake hands, even more impossible to have a short chat. 1 obtained signature was the maximum that could be achieved.

I'd rather have a 30 seconds chat with any of the people I admire than getting an autograph with my name writtten on it a thousand times.

Yes - but usually you don't have any choice.

Sadly, there have been unscrupulous individuals who have tried to sell Queen MIH covers with Freddie's autograph (and succeeded on occasion)

Indeed a very bad fake.

About Brian: it is true that nowadays it is very hard to meet either him or Roger.
I find it remarkable, as a couple of years ago it was still fairly easy to meet them.

Brian for instance was much more easy to reach until mid 90's. During AW-tour he started more and more leaving fans, while especially on the BTTL tour he was very very willing to meet people.

I met him a couple of times and he always took time to sign multiple items and to have chats. First time I met him, he stayed for about half an hour (!) with us before entering the hotel and going to bed.
