    It is funny that you brought this subject to the table right now.
    I watched a one-and -a-half hour Freddie Mercury portrait on tv just yesterday. Fabulous.
    Queen was always one of my favorite bands. Freddie was a super-gifted person. The Barcelona duet moves me to tears everytime I listen to it.
    What I found stange is that as a kid the obvious gay behaviour of many musicians like Freddie Mercury or Robert Halford was not clear to me (not that I have any problem with it). I found it to be extravagant.

    Brian and Roger were producers on the film, so were happy enough to give it their seal of approval.... the critics reviews have been mixed but the public reaction has been amazing... a bit like the song of the same name when it came out.

    I believe that people are upset that a lot was glossed over in Freddie’s life... I’m not surprised that is was. It would have been about 6 hours long and an 18 certificate if they had included everything. As it stands, it has an amazing soundtrack, a great story line, some brilliant character acting and is accessible... I’m a massive fan of it.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing it, hoping to this week, screw the reviews. I've always been a fan, one of my best friends was a huge fan, I remember buying her a Queen album (The Game) for her birthday one year. There simply was no one like Freddie Mercury. If you are a Queen fan, you should check out The Struts, their lead singer is very reminiscent of Freddie and they are a fantastic group of musicians.

    The Blue Special is for sale if you want to get your own piece of Brian May sound, with the pedal too. See separate for sale thread coming up.

    I'm sure they don't thunder :)
    Lucky if they can tell a guitar from a keyboard or had ever heard a Queen song prior to dumping on the movie.

    My wife saw this Queen ugly sweater on Facebook. Note Roger appears to have been Photoshopped in as his head and arms don't match.

    I am a big Queen fan.
    I had the chance to watch the movie just 1/2 an hour ago in a local theatre and I must confess that I am totally disappointed.
    I expected a deep and interesting band bio and I got "Saturday Night Fever" meets "Broke Back Mountain".:(:eek:
    I loved the camera moves, though. These were spectacular.

    (whisper)...could not stop looking at these teeth.:oops:

    I saw the movie weeks ago. It was excellent, Have always Been a tremendous Queen fan ever since I was a kid. I followed them throughout the 80's and the 90's
    I also watched the Live Aid concert. Queen's performance stole the show for sure.
    My buddy and his brothers all went to England years ago to spend a week with he band. It was crazy. One of my greatest regrets was to never see them up close and in person. I will be purchasing the Blue ray of the movie as soon as it comes out and add it to my collection of Queen stuff. Thanks for sharing all the pics of your excellent Queen stuff.

    I used to own this little screamer:
    upload_2018-12-8_12-21-45.jpeg
    It was highly specialised. It worked as promised.
    A cool colour for overdubs but no practice-amp at all. More of an effect with integrated loudspeaker.
    I sold it quickly.
    But there was this AC30 signature model that I would really love to own:

    One pot!
    I love it simple.
    That would be totally something for me.

    I think that the small white amp was meant as the preamp for the specialized AC30. Seemed to work pretty well for Brian.

    Not sure how many of you have seen the video of the side by side comparison. It's on FB, look up Indie ACED Bohemian Rhapsody. It isn't available anywhere else, but it also won't let it be shared either. Really cool how they were able to recreate the LiveAid performance. The whole time I watched the movie, I felt like I was really watching Brian May, the actor playing him was really good.

    Here is a short clip, but you really need to find the full length one if you can, it's amazing what a good job they did. I personally loved the movie, even with it's inaccuracies.

    I just watched it... That was one of the best movie biopics I've ever seen and the best movie I've seen in theaters this year.
