|I was interesting of somebody meet 1 or more of the bandmembers of Queen.
I have meet John Deacon in 1994 one day after his birtday,it was nice to talk with him.
|Wow, thats after his retairment.... And in his 'silent' period..... What did he have 2 say??? What did u ask! This is breaking news!! The silence is broken!!
|I was too excited... mixing up some years... getting older...;) But... The Questions stays!
|I have met Brian, and shook his hand, and my dad asked him a question once to which he replied..
|I met Brian at the Paris Las Vegas hotel the night before the WWRY musical premiere. We hung out for about 6 hours. I met Roger briefly the night of the musical premiere. Both gentlemen! Pictures are under the concert section of my myspace photos:
|I met all of them in 1982 at Crazy Eddie's record store in Manhattan during an in-store visit before they were due to play that night. I got all of their autographs. I asked Brian if he could build me a guitar. He said someday!
|Roger Taylor after the Arnhem 2005 gig.
Paul Rodgers after the Frankfurt 2005 gig.
|Deacons 1st Choice
|Yes, several times under different circumstances.
ALL of the times were very memorable and enjoyable. If you ever get the chance, enjoy the moment and be respectful to them.
|I would like to read Queen Archivist's answer :-)
|I've met Brian & his son a couple of years ago
in the swimming pool of our hotel in Orlando
|I played guitar with Brian in Frankfurt 1998... :)
He gave a guitar workshop then to promote 'Another World', and I was one the five lucky participants.
One of my dearest memories indeed.
Then I met him again twice, briefly, backstage in Offenbach '98 and at Freddie's 60th at the Dominion in London.
|I met Brian as he was signing autographs after the 1st USA show of the '06 tour in Miami.
He came out of the limo, signed some autographs, didn't say a word, got back in and they drove off.
There were only about 15 of us around as it was about 2 hrs after the show. He signed about 5 autograps.
2 people I've always wanted to meet are Clint Eastwood and Brian May. They just seem like very cool and down to earth people for as popular as they are.
Well I met Brian and was disappointed. I said, "Glad to have you back in the states." and he didn't even look up. I'm sure he was wiped out after the long show and it was very late at night.
But, that doesn't mean that I still can't be dissapointed. I've never met him before and will never meet him again that's all.
|Yes - met Roger twice, once at Happiness? CD signing in London, and once at The Cross Mad:Bad... signing in London too. Both times he chatted very amicable for as long as was possible with loads of people waiting in line!!
|I've met Brian twice. Both times he was very nice and happy to chat a bit.

Could you upload that video again? It was so cool to see that!
Did Brian recognise you those 2 times after the workshop?
|I met Paul Rodgers after the show in Paris. He was very kind and humble and we talked for a minute or so....if you can REALLY call that talking :D

We where waiting at the gates after the Frankfurt gig (in total 5 persons). Suddenly we saw a silver mercedes driving our way (instead of turning left to enter the road, like all the mercedes cars did)
We thought, "well now someone is going to say we have to leave or something"
But what happens? Paul Rodgers steps out of the car chatting with us for about 5 minutes about the show and things like that. Following, his wife asks us if their is anything we would like to get autographed by Paul. "I'll make sure he signs it all" she said.
After about 10 minutes we left the Frankfurt gates with all our stuff (tickets, programs, Bad Company records etc) signed.
Amazingly friendly people!
|At WWRY I was standing by a door waiting to give my ticket for my seat. The door opened and out walked Brian, well I was so shocked that I gasped really loud and everyone in the foyer looked at me, including him!! So at least I managed to gain his attention somehow XD
My cousin called out "How you doing Brian, my son?"
Then Brian kind of grunted and put his thumb up as he walked past. *Ah memories* XD
|"But what happens? Paul Rodgers steps out of the car chatting with us for about 5 minutes about the show and things like that. Following, his wife asks us if their is anything we would like to get autographed by Paul. "I'll make sure he signs it all" she said."
Cool! He does seem like a nice guy.
|Shook hands breifly and said hello to Roger in 1999 EF tour. But Ive met Metallica and Velvet Revolver, does that count??
|Basterds! ;) I was waiting at the back enterance of the Ahoy in 2003 (i think) and another fan was waiting at a door where he had given some singles to sign to a security dude.. after a wef minutes he came back with them.. signed and shiny. That is as close as I ever got. Crappy part is that I didnt have anything with me to sign aside from my ticket, and I wasnt inside yet. :(

|I met Freddie in my dreams.
He fucked me. I screamed.
There was Parsi semen everywhere.

|A Word In Your Ear
|I have met "Sam J Jones(Flash gordon)", "Melody Anderson (Dale Arden)" & "Brian Blessed(Prince Vultan)" All 3 of them feature on the Queen Album Soundtrack of the film. Oh!!! Does that count?
|i met freddie st james' 86 working for look north at the time
|No, but I remember I met them in my dream. I had dinner with Queen and i was so shocked to have them in the dining room. Oh, I wrote to Brian, does that count? XD
|Never met Freddie, but my consolation is that I have had some very deep and meaningful chats with people who probably knew him better than his band mates did. The guy seriously deserves every last ounce of the legendary status he's achieved. He burnt the candle at both ends, and in the middle too. A creative genius in every sense of the word. I'm an envious glowing shade of red, for all those who ever had the privilige of conversing with him.
Never met the quiet one who according to Mack "goes on holidays to Bali". Maybe one day, who knows.
Feel very priviliged that I have met the "remaining band members" and "associates" quite a few times now.
|I first met Roger when he was looking for the backstage entrance to the Astoria in 1990, met him a few times since then, mainly at Cross gigs, most people asked him everytime how Freddie was, to which he always replied that he was well. Met both of them after they appeared with the Foos at Brixton, I think I was the only member of the crowd hanging around afterwards that recognised Roger, so I got to chat to him a bit. Brian was mobbed (as was Dave Grohl) so barely said "hello".
|I met Brian May after his concert in Oslo (Norway), September 27th 1998. My sister, her boyfriend and I waited by the back door with some other fans.
I shook his hand and got an autograph on the ticket.
The concert was of course Great!
|I met Brian outside "Cirkus" Gig in Stockholm 28 sept 1998 !
He shaked my hand & signed 2cds.
He even asked all fans outside if anyone havent got an autog. then he left with the tourbus..
Well i met Spike&BHM band also =).
|I'd like to meet roger and brian.. maybe paul too :)
|My old lecturer drove Brian to and from his Another World gig in Perth, '98.
Brian was apparently surprised and upset at the low turnout. Poor guy. I'm ashamed of this town sometimes.
|I've written to Brian via e-mail and gotten a few replies.
As for meeting any of the Queen members in-person, not really.
I've been lucky to be about 6-10 feet away from the vehicle that brought Brian into the PNE Coliseum in Vancouver, before the Q+PR concert there in April 2006. (He was sitting in the front seat, with an unobscured view :D - the others were in the back seats of the other cars with heavily tinted windows, so I had no idea which one had who :( )
Otherwise, I was lucky to get an autograph from Paul Rodgers at that show, through his tour manager who came out and asked us (that were waiting at the loading dock area) if any of us were looking to get Paul's autographs. :)
(He autographed my copy of ROTC (CD), which itself had a printing error with the booklet!)
|Met Fred,Deacy and the other two when they came to a charity cricket match at Godstone (Surrey) in '78!!! Spent the afternoon amidst them. Was only 12 but a massive Queen fan. Fred gave me 50pence so we could get an ice-cream!!! got autographs etc etc....
|I've not met any of the band, but I did meet and jam with Tim Staffel a few years ago. He was visiting my Dad's cousin (Pete Hammerton of The Others) while they were working on what eventually became the aMIGO album. Spent the afternoon chatting with them and Rob Tolchard about their time at Hampton Grammar together and Tim's memories of Smile and early Queen. A lovely chap.
|Yes. Back in 1977 (I had just turned 16 and was with my sister and two friends). And then in 1978, just Roger (I was with my younger brother who was age 12 at the time - funny ... Roger didn't offer him any ice cream money - but it was late at night).
|Well, I met them all twice... for the first time in 1978 and then again in 1986.
Ok... all of them, but WITHOUT Paul! ;-)
|Rog, Bri, Jason Falloon, Chris Taylor, Jim Beach. Enough for that vanity fair topic.
theCro wrote: I'd like to meet roger and brian.. maybe paul too :)Yeh, Perth can be a very dissapointing place sometimes. I reckon if Brian and Rog decide to tour Oz in 08 or 09, he'll see Perth on the map and put a big black mark next to it. 'sigh'.
1978... I met Brian outside the Empire Pool, Wembley. He was very friendly and signed my autograph book (yeah, we had such a thing in the 70's)
1979... I met Brian and Roger outside the Pavillion de Paris. Brian said... "I can't believe this" speaking about the 60 or so that had travellrd to Paris for the 3 Jazz gigs.
1979... I met Brian and John at the Atlantic Towers hotel in Liverpool on the Crazy Tour. I went to Roger's hotel room.. but that story is elswhere (maybe on Queen Online... not sure,, but it's too long to go into now). And of course Fred, who didn't speak to me but signed the autograph book and gave me a toothy grin. All on photos,
|I met Brian at the Cozy Powell Tribute Concert in 1999. We had a nice quiet conversation as we walked from the stage door to the main entrance, right past the pub on the opposite side of the road that was full of Queen fans who didn't even notice.
A video of Brian's performance was shot by the Father of Black Sabbaths (then) lead singer. He took my business card and promised to send me a copy. He never did :(

XDThat's funny....I had a dream several months ago that the members of Queen were staying at my house for a few nights, sort of like it was a B&B.....it was funny! Freddie slept in my room....
|XD really blinx?
That's funny. We should have more awesome dreams about them.
I once had a dream that I went on tour with Green Day on a green tour bus. It had the peace sign, it had green paint splattered all over, and the inside was nice.
XD I have the weirdest dreams.
|Met Brian in an arcade in Camberley in early 1990,chatted briefly about the Miracle album and mentioned Freddie and touring and how great the magic tour was.I think he knew that something was wrong then,nothing else mentioned.Was eating a large packet of crisps and giving his kids small bagfulls of money...Genuine fab bloke,it is amazing how few people seemed to recognise him!
My friend fitted Roger's sky tv about the same time in his surrey home.Saw Bri again buying some glue(?)in camberley again,trying to pay by credit card(99p).When he came out the shop,the friendly traffic warden had slapped a ticket on his Mercedes 300TE estate....
|That never happened in the UK! One rare case of Queen bowing to record company pressure.I think I have seen photo's of that,I remember Freddie looking very glum about it all,was he just fed up with th U.S reaction?
Poo, again wrote: I met Freddie in my dreams. He fucked me. I screamed. There was Parsi semen everywhere. Help.awesome!
|i "met" Brian at a booksigning in Hollyweird california. BANG!: THE COMPLETE HISTORY etc...
accidentally walked into the room to begin with (it hadn't started) shoulda brought a coffee or something and tried to blend in hahaha.
instead got my book n waited... the event leaflet said MEET BRAIN MAY ...yes BRAIN...
still it was cool. i brought my FURIA cd and Star Fleet...but he wasn't signing the stuff.
it's a pity cause in 01 or 00 i met Nuno bettencourt during a QUEEN Hollywood walk of fame induction: none of the people around seemed to notice they were in the presence of a rock and roll god. I got him to sign a dollar bill (it was all i had on me) and he laughed about that.
It was for a small event titled "QUEEN: WRITTEN IN THE STARS" waved bye to Steve vai there as well...(yeah like that's something haha) Bri and Rog accepted on behalf of the band. later that night they jammed...but to this day i regret i couldn't attend (i was not yet 21...two fucking weeks shy of it)....
i hear they screened Greatest Flix on DVD and had a jam.....it's a pity cause the place was small....for such an epic sort...
Club Ivar i think.
that's my story... my profile photo's a pic of Brian at the signing with me. I actually doodled him a drawing (never scanned it) for the occasion...spent the night doing it cause i had got late word of the event so i took the day off work.....
these are the guys that shaped so much. love em.
so that's my story. Brian took a look (and his goons tried to put my arm away when i pulled out the drawing haha....goons..) and then he said "you're quite a talented young boy" or something like that.. and we took a snap shot...
someday i hope to see that drawin again...it was actually pretty good. One of the fam or entourage said "and you call THAT a doodle??!" so apparently it wasn't just me.
maybe i'll hit up the soapbox for that. haha
The guys are personal heroes of mine so....there ya go. Wish i could have shared a brew with em, played pool or GREATER YET JAMMED WITH THE GUYS (like those mostly talentless people on american and [barf] CANADIAN idol..... but that's MY story.
I hear the red special has magical powers of rockability.
it controls all other axes and cannot be destroyed....
but these are just rumors...
i'm no celebrity but the pic is here on a link i guess
|Met Brian, Roger, Freddie's mum, dad and his sister at the opening night of the Freddie Mercury Photographic Exhibition at the Albert Hall in London. A friend of my uncle, Paul Humberstone had a fair few photos displayed that he had taken whilst in college with Freddie in the late 60's early 70's. Also met Dave Clarke, Jim Beach and the fan club people. Weirdly, spend about 10 minutes with Brians daughter trying to find Brian whilst he had been whisked away to do an interview. I was still in school at the the time and remember having to leave early to get the last train all the way back up to North Wales..... Will remember it for a long time although seems like a dream now! Got the Let Me Live CD signed by the majority of the people there....... and remember talking some bollocks to Roger and complementing him on the Happiness album!
|I haven't met them myself, but a few people I know have. A friend of mine once sold Roger a TV from Comet (or maybe it was Dixons?) in Truro. He was really friendly, and was actually buying it for one of his family. Only got his autograph on the receipt though;-)
My physics tutor from Exeter also studied for his Phd with Brian. He had some interesting stories - apparently Brian was well known for turning up in the labs and going "look at this sound I can make!", and not the most serious of students. Sounded like a lot of fun!

|Met Brian the day after his one and only N.American show in Chicago 1998.
He was at a Guitar Center shop signing autographs for a couple of hours...by the time I got to him we were told to make it a quick hello, have the item signed and be off. No time for pictures or anything like that.
I was really surprised with the amount of people that showed up that morning...there was a LONG line that went around the building.

I was there, as well. [img=/images/smiley/msn/shades_smile.gif][/img] I drove all the way from SC for that Rock Stock show and autograph signing.

|I met Freddie in Dublin in 1984 outside his hotel after the gig.
I forced him to shake hands. He said nothing and walked into the hotel without saying a word or signing anything for the 50 or so fans who were there.
I met Roger at his album signing at hmv in 1994. Very friendly. And so was Roger.
I met Roger and Brian at a restaurant in Warsaw in 1996. Roger (and Martin) friendly and joking. Brian more reserved, shall we say.
They were on my flight back to London the next day but I didn't hassle them apart from saluting Brian at the baggage reclaim at Heathrow.
I think that was it!
|I met John Deacon shopping in London, he was very nice, a little surprised that I recognised him but seemed genuinly flattered that I just wanted to shake his hand. Probably around 1994 ish
Met with Roger ourside WWRY about 3 years ago, he was going in to see a rehearsal, he was also very pleased I just wanted to say Hi, and was a real gent, in a Rock God type of way !!
