WHAT WAS THE FIRST QUEEN ALBUM YOU BOUGHT? Sheer Heart Attack I think

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A FAN OF QUEEN/BRIAN MAY? 15 years+

FAV. QUEEN ALBUM/S: Wembley '86 is a cracker and A Kind Of Magic.

FAV. BRIAN MAY ALBUM/S: All of them.

FAV. QUEEN/BRIAN MAY SONG/S: All of them really, but in particular One Vision, Show Must Go On, Love of my Life, Now I'm Here, Tie Your Mother Down, Hammer To Fall, Who Wants To Live Forever, Radio Ga Ga.......ok ok, there's just too many.

FAV. QUEEN/BRIAN MAY VIDEO/S: Wembley '86, I want to Break Free, Radio Ga Ga and A Kind of Magic. Also Brian's Star Licks guitar tuition video !

FAV. QUEEN/BRIAN MAY LYRIC/QUOTE: "This shitty guitar won't play the chords that I want it to play" - Freddie

QUEEN/BRIAN MAY CONCERTS ATTENDED: Last two solo tours. I never saw Queen live and it's just NOT fair......sniff...

WHEN YOU THINK OF BRIAN WHAT'S THE FIRST WORD THAT COMES TO MIND? Genuine

IF YOU COULD MEET BRIAN WHAT WOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD SAY TO HIM? Have Satch and Vai forgiven you for accidentally stepping on your pedal in Seville and causing awful tri-tone solo's ? Ha ha......cool and funny !

IF YOU COULD HAVE BRIAN OVER FOR ONE DAY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR THAT DAY? I'd have to ask him how such different personalities can get on in a band and stuff like that. It would be great to get an insight into his experience with recording, song construction, inspirations, etc. Sorry, boring musician stuff.....

WHAT SONG WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO SEE BRIAN COVER? This is going to be odd. I'd like to see what he'd do with Paul Weller's "You Do Something To Me".

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE BRIAN COLLABORATE WITH IN THE FUTURE? Ooh, difficult one. Eric Johnson would be a real interesting possibilty as they are both so musically and sonically concious.

WHAT IS YOUR MUSICAL TALENT? Guitar, vocals, keyboards, a bit of drums, and various other instruments. Basically, all my cash goes on guitar gear ! My guitar tech (until recently) used to set up Brian's 'Old Lady' (currently does Angus and Malcolm Young's (AC/DC) and various other famous folks ! :)

YOUR WEBSITE: www.beans.force9.co.uk (hardly a thing on it as I don't have the time for just messing around with website design !)

WHAT OTHER MUSIC DO YOU REALLY LIKE? Absolutely everything except hardcore rave and rap.

MAILING LISTS YOU ARE ON: Eric Johnson's and some gig listing sites.

MESSAGE FOR THE FANS: "There will NEVER be a better band than Queen, agreed ?! :)"

MESSAGE TO BRIAN: "Brian, thank you, you've given light to my life and so many other people that I've met. In particular my friend who has a photo of her playing the Old Lady and a framed letter that you kindly took the time to write from a tour. After such a long time in the music business, it is a testament to you that you treat your fans in such an incredible way to make them feel special. The very best of health and happiness to you my friend. "
