Fab story about being at the recording! You are lucky to be part of such a famous video. Was the official inivitation sent to Queen fan club members in the UK?

What tasks were given to you? Did you wear one of the helmets with headlight in the video? Do you remember any details about how you was received at the set. What parts of the video was recorded there?

Those were the epic times! Wish I could turn back time, and join the fan club :)

Thanks, Yes it was a fan club invitation.
I also went to the WATC and Friends Will Be Friends video shoots.
Regarding FWBF - I'm in the video and on the record cover as well :-D

Wow! Simply amazing! That is really something I would be very proud of, for the rest of my life!

I am also happy to be speaking to you, who were part of those videos... never thought I would, but internet makes it possible.

Which of the 3 videos do you consider most memorable, most incredible to be a part of, and why? The FWBF video had the big 1986 tour lighting rig.

Was there a big difference between the fans/crowd at the 1977 WATC video, and 1986 FWBF?

Younger fans in 1977, more hysteria ?

Did you get anything to eat or drink or any memoribilia?

WATC had the mini concert afterwards, so that one probably wins.
Next would be the Break Free video shoot, because John Deacon actually let us in to watch the filming!
I also got to stand next to Freddie when he took his breaks.
FWBF was the last video shoot for me, so also special of course and I made a brief appearance too!
Did you see the photos I took at that one?

Awesome! To be on the 1977 videoshoot would be on the top list of things to do, if I could go back in time.


No I didn't see the FWBF photos .. where are they?

In the previous link I posted there was a scan of my signed invitation with a short story and also some scans of photos I took at the FWBF video shoot.

If you can't access them, I could post them here if you want.

I bumped into John Deacon again years later outside the ''Break Free'' video shoot when he asked me if I had a cigarette.
I explained my girlfriend (now my wife) and I had got there late and the doors were locked.
Being the nice chap he is he escorted my girlfriend and I inside, where we could watch the filming.
I even got to stand next to Freddie when he had a break during filming, and got autographs from all of the band.
I was also at the WATC and FWBF video shoots.
