|I just wanna ask, how long hav some of u guyz been a fan of queen - coz i've only been one since about 2 months ago but a serious one at that! i just wanna see if I'm gonna go on being a fan until i die or will i snuffle out like a candle light?! I think I will but just wanna check :-) To see how much money I will spend on cds, whats the point if ur gonna h8 them in a week (of course i never will).:-P just' kidding, about the whole cd thing enywayz.|
|I bought my first Queen item on June 18, 2004. So I guess that's about 2 (and a half) months also.|
|I bought the Greatest Hits Collection. I figured I should start out with a variety of songs from throughout the 70s, 80s, and 90s, to see exactly what I thought of them, to make sure I didn't just like a few songs.|
|i've known them for over 10 yrs now, but i've been a hardcore fan for 3 yrs now, i think my anniversary is coming up soon
i've got all their cd's , and although i'm liking other bands atm , i will never forget Queen, my tattoo speaks for me
|Known Queen for about 15 years cause my uncle likes them also so they've been around for almost all my life, loved them ever since, and I love them more and more every day.. So don't worry, who hookes up on Queen doesn't go away so easy:)) They'll take you all your time and money (for cd-s) but honey you'll survive;))|
|Known Queen since 1992, became a fan after the FM Tribute on TV. First item was The Game on CD, got it from a friend who's dad worked at EMI.
Actively collecting since 1995, but I've almost stopped collecting... Much more interested in other bands now then I was before.
|From ’79. And I bought my first LP ’The Game’ next year - in 1980. I had got SHA and ANATO only on cassette before 1980.
Memories, sweet memories ...
|Mine was A Night at the Opera (I was 14 years old ) in 1990, thanks to the advice of an uncle that love Queen... I still remember when I start to translate the "Death on Two Legs" song to understand it...
Greetings from Portugal
|when Classic Queen came out I became a fan just alittle after wayne's world|
Since 1997... Queen Rocks! and two or three months later Made in Heaven. Then, a very friend of mine, who loves heavy metal music, share with me some cd's and cassetes of his uncle... (Hits 2, Innuendo and The Miracle...) mmmmmmmmmmmmm wait a minute I went backwards!!
Being a Queen fan give me a lot of satisfaction. I'm happy being a Queen fan...
|Only about a year. Honestly, I wish I'd been born earlier. It'd be amazing to have actually grown up with Queen; waiting for albums to be released, seeing them on tour, meeting them...|
|Since 1979, 25 years,God thats scary.|
|Couple of months, and what a good time it has been.|
|ironic and sad as it sounds...
I've been a fan since nov 1991
|1984... Oh my God: that's 20 years ago!!! I was 7 and the first record by Queen I'd ever listened to was "A Day at the Races"... I remember having stolen it from my dad precious collection!!!!
|Been a hardcore fan and collector since 1987 and proud.|
|1994, gh2 and then mih|
|thanx guyz, i see i will be a fan until i die :-)|
|Since '75 when I used to tape Queen songs off Radio 1 on the Sunday evening chart show. First album I bought myself was News of the World after saving up my pocket money.|
|thanx again dollz,|
|Since 1989. First video I saw was I want it all. First album I bought was Queen.|
|My brother infected me when he bought the
Innuendo album immediately after it's release.
The first cd I bought myself was Live at Wembley.
The first studio album I bought was The Game.
I can hardly imagine that I will ever love any
other band as much as I love Queen.
|since '86...Magic-Tour and my first visit to London|
|My first CD ever was Classic Queen, listening to BoRhap many, many times. Then on to Greatest Hits, and Live Killers. Then, from Live Killers I sought out great songs that weren't on Classic and Greatest Hits, and got Queen,Sheer Heart Attack,A Night At The Opera, and Jazz. I'm STILL waiting for my News Of The World CD!!! And I'm also going to get A Day At The Races soon.|
|Since november 1991, when Freddie died, Queen's music did get al lot of attention and I had the age for discovering new music for the first time, just when you come off your childhood. I had Greatest Hits I on a copied cassette, but Queen I was the first album i bought, shortly thereafter Live Killers. I've been a fan all those years,in the beginning you're so amazed you think there isn't anything better than Queen. But when you grow up musically, you learn to listen to other music, and now i appreciate more music than ever, but Aerosmith is my second great love after Queen. They really rock, esspecially "Rocks" and "Toys In The Attic". Sweet Emotion is a gem! Most Queen fans will like Dream On a lot.|
|I've been a fan for just over a year and a half. My first cds were Classic Queen and Greatest Hits. I fell in love right away!|
|I remember when I was a little girl, about 5 or six, a little bit after the 1989 revolution - I'm from Romania - my mother, I think bought me a cassete with Gratest Hits 1. Then, I don't know why, I started listening to other artists until - I think - 1999 when I (re)descovered how much I loved Queen. I have become Queen-aholic since then and it's still growing inside me.|
|I have been a fan of Queen's since approximetley 1980, so that's about 24 years, and I am proud of it too! Reading so of the others about how long they've been a fan of Queen's makes me feel old!|
|Waynes world came out when i was three and my dad was a queen fan. That was actually one of the tw first songs i ever remember hearing/the other on is big bad will is sweet william now by van halen. Anyways up until i was fourteen i actually made fun of my dad for liking old people music like queen. I rember him trying to play them in the car and i said for god sakes change it. Then my friend and i ashley were talking about good songs in chorus and she started sing bo rhap. Then i went in the step dads cd collection and found classic queen and loved it. Then for my 15th b-day my mom bought me the platinum collection. The first item i bought was a night at the opera naturally.|
|In 1979 I heard We Are The Champions for the first time, but what really captivated me was Bohemian Rapsody. That was when I said, these guys are good! For many years I stop listening because in USA no one I knew was into Queen and I just forgot about them.
Now I'm a hard core fan since 2002. I listen to other singers and bands, but none can compare to Queen. They are the best.
|Well unfortunatley I was born only 5 months before freddie died :( - June 11 so I neva got to see them live or enything :( - but i'm real glad i'm into tyhem so much. I'm a HARDCORE fan seriously and my mum's starting to get sik of me :S. But I'm gonna save up for a Night at the Opera and then "Magic Moments" DVD. I really wanna see some interviews, u no?|
|The 'Magic Moments' DVD got a real bad review
in the magazine of the German Fanclub!
According to this review it is an unofficial product and there are no statements from the band itself, but only interviews with other people about Queen.
If you want some interview and documentation you
should think about buying the 3 'Magic years'
Vidos. They are not (yet?) available on DVD.
Alternativley you can also buy the 'Champions
of the World' Video, what is mainly material which
is also featured on the Magic Years Videos and
some 'new' material they edited after Freddie's
What does the rest of you think...what to do if
you want to have some documentation and interviews?
|Since November 1991, when Freddie died.
There was a Queen weekend on MTV.
|I have been a die hard Queen fan for about a year and two months. It all started with Greatest Hits too. Ahhhh, good times.|
|i wonder why there arent any queen weekends or queen specials on mtv or mtv2 or anything like that here....d;fjddfsdgfs
ive known about them for a few years, since i was little
but i became a huge fan in may 2004...
|I bought (and still have!) We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions on 45 in 1977. I was 10! Then Crazy Little Thing Called Love on 45. I was 12 then. After that, it was album after album.
I guess I should have just said a looong time..lol
|I grew up as a fan of sci-fi movies as a kid so the first Queen album I bought was actually the Flash Gordon soundtrack because I loved the film. Then, in 1981 I bought the Greatest Hits album and realized I had missed out on lots of great songs. By the time Hot Space came out I was totally hooked and have been ever since.|
|August 1986 when I was 11. Just in time to miss the last gigs they ever did!
had a lull in my fanatacism during/after universisty (1993 -97) but am making up for it now!!
Enjoyed waiting for the Miracle and Innuendo albums and was lucky enough to go to the tribute and the Freddie anniversary gig at Ocean in hackney in 2001 (I think it was) where Brian and Roger played. Fantastic it was!
Don't believe I shall ever tire of this quartet's output! Roll on GH 3 DVD, box sets etc!
|Well I know for sure that I'm going to be a Queen fan 'til I die...|
|Been a fan since 1986, when I got the "A Kind of Magic" album. Like someone else said, just in time to miss their last live gigs :-(|
|Since about '98.|
|18 years now darlings....|
|I've been a fan since '76. So I guess it doesn't 'wear off'.|
|The first Queen I remember hearing was WWRY/WATC on the radio. I don't remember the exact order of purchase, but the first records I bought were News of the World, The Game and the old Greatest Hits record. Here in the US, it listed Keep Youself Alive as being on both Queen and Queen II. I assume in Europe the record had 7 Seas of Rhye instead.
I was impressed by Queen's appearances on Saturday Night Live and Live Aid.
I never stopped liking them but it was only in more recent years that I became obsessed. I like the first four albums the best, but I think they had great songs all the way through their career.
