Dennis O'Regan

(is it sad that I knew that without having to look it up?)

e: actually, now I'm starting to doubt myself. Is it Dennis O'Regan? I looked for it at his website (http://www.denis.co.uk/acatalog/queen_slideshow.html) but couldn't find it.

*sigh* Yeah I know... I'm almost certain it's Dennis O'Regan though!

Without wishing to look like I'm leaping at the chance to prove Lester wrong (after all his knowledge of all things Queen is far greater than mine) but I have that picture of Freddie on the front of my copy of 'Queen - A Visual Documentary' and it says that the picture was taken by/belongs to 'London Features'. I've no idea if this is actually true though. :o/

However, there are a couple of images of Freddie similiar to that one over at www.musicpictures.com which were apparently taken by a lady called Suzie Gibbons:

Of course that doesn't mean to say she took the photo of Freddie that we're talking about, but the plot thickens all the same! ;o)

I actually looked at my copy of that book too, but couldn't find any credit whatsoever for the front cover, so I'm probably wrong.

It's in Denis O'Regan's book (Queen - The Full Picture), so I suppose that it's his.

Are you sure Thomas? I only ask because I've just checked my copy of that book and I can't find that pic anywhere in it. :o/ I've even checked Mr. O' Regan's "Queen - A Magic Tour" book and it's not in there either. Am I missing something? Or have I done something silly like turning over 2 pages at once?! Hmm... :o/
