Two recent appearances of Brian May
In March Brian inducted Def Leppard into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and played All The Young Dudes with them. Then in late April he was a surprise guest at the Mott The Hoople concert in London and played guitar in two songs - All The Way From Memphis and All The Young Dudes.
On this day [May 26]
Tour programs wanted!
Here is a list of concert programs that I need for my collection together with the price I'm willing to pay. There are a couple more that aren't listed here because I don't have any scan (All Cannings 2012, Wintershall 1998 + 2011). Please get in touch if you are willing to sell (or donate :-)) some of these items to me. Thank you!
Beware!!! Fraudster newyork-nyc selling fake tickets on ebay!
Until last year I've never come across any fake Queen tickets. Yes, there are tons of reprints and other framed cheap crap but the auctions always say so. But recently I've come across a very dangerous fraudster and it's very important to warn other collectors. One American citizen who is using several alter egos (Giorgio Bacci from New York, Marco B. from Seattle and possibly others) is selling tons of fake tickets via his ebay account newyork-nyc. All his tickets are literally megarare (such as Smile in Truro 1970), he also sells plenty of other (Beatles, Elvis, Led Zeppelin) tickets and it's not easy to spot that they're fake, they do look quite real on the photos. I was also fooled at first. Luckily he was stupid enough to sell the tickets to me (= to one of the biggest collector of Queen tickets in the world) and when I finally had the tickets in my hand everything became obvious. He downloaded the scans from my site, he just changed the ticket number, did a bit more Photoshop work, printed it using a cheap colour inkjet printer and creased it to make it look old. When I informed him about my research he was clearly afraid of bad publicity, refunded me immediately and stopped communicating, he even didn't want to have his fake tickets back! But he keeps selling more and more of those fakes tickets also he also sells many tickets off ebay, he has already cheated tons of people incl. Queen fans. Avoid this thief - ebay account newyork-nyc at all cost!
