Under a thread called "Your favorite Queen Pictures!" taylormad101 posted a link to a photobucket website. Well, it says there are 461 Queen pics, and I just spent a good hour clicking back and forward through them. I've looked at a lot of Queen photos in my day, but I'd say 95% of these I had never seen before.

Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

Wow, you're right!

In the two years I've been hanging at Queen boards, I had thought I had seen every Queen pic just about because of the sheer repetition of the images.

Cool link!

Thanks for the link. Theres a lot of great action shots and great shots of Rogers kit.


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?

Several users in the "Your favorite Queen Pictures!" thread have linked photos to a queenoz.com website. I had not heard of that one before. The photos are nicely organized. They are mostly standard Queen photos you have probably seen before, but every now and then there is a nice surprise. It's no wonder I never get anything done -- too busy looking at Freddie! http://www.queenoz.com/qophotos.htm

You may like this little bit of information in the auction catalog pictured above. The description was: "An original Queen bass drumskin, 1980's, the Ludwig Ensemble skin with black-painted ground and white lettering, autographed in white marker by Roger Taylor, with letter from the band's Official International Fan club, dated June 2001, confirming this was used on Roger's kit for the band's momentous 'Live Aid' appearance, Wembley Stadium, 13th July 1985, and also in the video for 'Hammer To Fall' the previous year, 66cm (26in) diameter. L3,000 - 3,500." (this was the estimated auction price range) "Live Aid, 'The Global Jukebox', was broadcast live on TV and radio in more than 160 countries, to an estimated audience of over one and half billion people."

In this same catalog the following was up for auction with this picture as a sample:

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c138/carboengine/abonhams4-1.jpg

"A large collection of photographs of Queen, 1970's-1980s, unpublished, privately-taken pictures of Freddie, the band and entourage on various tours and other occasions such as recording sessions and video shoots, comprising mostly colour prints, some Polaroids, with a quantity of negatives (it is not known if these correspond to all images), to be sold with copyright (approx. 300) L3,999 - 4,000 From the collection of Paul Prenter, former PA to the band."

Most of them are from:

1. Old Fan Club magazines
2. Very old Japanese magazines.

There are a few I hadn't seen, and they are clearly well scanned, but they're not the Holy Grail.
