Been half watching the Freddie Tribute Concert on ABC2 tonight. Well I'd be watching it more except ABC2 is having a bad night here and the signal keeps cutting out. I remember watching it my parents' bedroom .. 15 years ago!!! Holy crap I'm getting old fast. It's cut down to an hour though, with documentary inserts, not the whole thing.

This was after seeing another Queen concert a few weeks ago on ABC2, filmed in Montreal in 1982.

I was first introduced to Queen in 1986, when we learnt Bohemian Rhapsody in year 7 music. It was one of my favourite songs for years.

Then in 1991 I met my first boyfriend who was a *huge* Freddie fan - to the point of naming his car Freddie, and doing Freddie dances in front of his video. I got into Queen then in a fairly big way, collecting cds and videos. My boyfriend was not impressed. He thought I shouldn't be a Queen fan because of him. And then he got annoyed because I picked up Greatest Hits I and II on cd for like $15. Shrug. He was an idiot anyway.

In 1998 (Nov 25) I saw Brian May live at the Capital Theatre. I actually only heard about it that day on the radio, and rang up on the spot to get a ticket, and trundled along by myself to it. I was soooo sick that night (had the flu), which made belting out the songs somewhat more difficult ;) But it was such a special night, because it was the closest I was ever going to get to a Queen concert.

Here's something I did when I was much younger and had the time...
