Favorite band member:Freddie Mercury
Favorite Album:Queen II
Queen fan since:1977
I became a Queen fan because:First head We Are The Champions..didn't know the band and thought the song was about the Marvel Comics comic book The Champions...thinking wow, that's cool they wrote a song about superheroes (and the song is so heroic)...in 1980 I bought the single for AOBTD, the first single I ever bought..I recall listening to it a few times in a row, but then put it away...and finally on Oct 27th 1984, I was helping my brother-in-law move out of his apartment and he put on Queen II, Side Black for me..that was it...I was floored...from the opening of Ogre Battle I was hooked! Being a fantasy fan, the imagery invoked by the album art and the fantastical lyrics grabbed me immediately....this was the band for me!!
My favorite Queen item I own:Killer Queen - the Mick Rock limited editon photo book.
