Favorite band member:
Favorite Album:Queen II
Queen fan since:1974
I became a Queen fan because:First time I saw Queen was at Orpheum Theater Boston in 1975, 2nd row floor. Blew me away... Mahogany Rush was the only opening band. When Queen came on, the stage went black and fog everywhere. Opened with Now I'm Here... Sheer Heart Attack was the new album. So they played great songs from the fist three albums. A friend gave me Queen I. It was red with gold lettering on front and back. I still have it today, it's cracked from playing so much... I was hooked Queen fan since 1974.
My favorite Queen item I own:The second time I saw Queen was at the Music Hall, Boston in 1976... 10th row center. Great show! After the show me and two friends were hanging around in the back alley, smoking a joint, talking about the show when two black limos pulled up and into the alley. There were about ten people in the alley. The drivers got out and opened the back door, then the back door to the Music Hall opened and there was Queen with Joe Perry from Aerosmith about to get into the limo; also two very hot chicks with them. All the people in the alley rushed to the door. I went around to the other side of the limo and opened the car door. Face to face with Brian May I handed him my program and all four Queen members signed it...TOO COOL... I still have it to this day.
