- not only is it beautiful and unique, but it also makes people's lives
better, it makes us happy. Is it not an excellent reason to live, say,
another 54 years? Oh, I don't think that years really matter. In fact, I
believe you still got your best moments before you! I wish you good luck
and health and tons of new excellent works! Stay unique, inventive and
cheerful (as you are). Rock on! Happy Birthday, Brian!

Happy Birthday Brian!! It must be incredible to read all these messages and see how you have touched all these lives!
Back in 1992, I had the privlege of spending quite a lot of time with EXTREME when they were recording their 3rd CD here. We would discus Queen and how much the band meant to all. I can still remember the day when Gary Cherone walked out of the studio and asked me, " What song should I sing for the Freddie tribute, One Vision or Hammer to Fall?"
I made Gary a custom shirt to wear which had " Life Is Real" printed on the front and a pic of Freddie on the back. He wore it the next day after the show and told me you saw it and thought it was great.
I recently won a " Greatest Queen Fan" contest that was held by Billboard Magazine upon the release of Queen Greateast Hits III in America. A picture of my fiance' (who entered me in the contest) and I appeared in the magazine and we received an autographed plaque from the label. (We are getting married September 21st, 2001 if you know a good band. *wink *wink!)
What else? TOUR AMERICA!!! Come to Florida!! Sandy beaches! DisneyWorld! Lots of sunshine!! My life will not be complete until I get the chance to see you live.
Best wishes, Lance Elias

Dear Brian, 19 July is always a very special day to me, because it's my birthday. But it is also the birthday of one great man that helped rock grow
to what it is now: Probably the most listened music on this planet. It is not for no reason that You guys were introduced in the Rock 'n Roll hall of fame.
Good luck with Your music and Your marriage, and keep on doing the thing
that You do best: PLAY THE GUITAR!!!!!!
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!
name: Melissa Baxter
I just wanted to say Happy Birthday, and tell you that your music has had a huge impact on my life. I started listening to Queen in 1992 after seeing the Tribute Concert on TV and realizing 'Hey, I like all these songs! How come I didn't know they were by Queen before?' When Back To The Light came out, I was astonished by 'Just One Life'--although it was written for someone else, it describes exactly how I feel about Queen and Freddie. You and Roger were incredible
at the Hall of Fame induction! It's great to see that you have tremendous energy and can still bring the house down after 30 years of performing. I
hope this year treats you well, and I wish you all the best. Keep on rocking!
name: Gabriel Pulvirenti
Brian, I´ll always remember the first day I heard Queen and I felt completely amazed by your huge musical creatitvity, as a young Guitar
player, I´ll keep on learning from you to become better person and guitarrist. Happy Birthday!! God Bless you!
name: Katherine Wilcox
Brian, I want to wish you a very happy birthday. You are one of four people who have, in a quite amazing and probably quite surreal way been with me through my life. Without ever knowing of me you have touched my heart and lifted my soul so many times. You have added a richness to my thoughts in the way only great musicians can, and i only wish that there was someway I could pay you back, or even just let you know, how much you, through your music, have truly helped me to become who I am, and continue to influence me as I go through life, picking me up when i am low and joining in when i have reason to celebrate. I wish you every comfort and happiness, now and always, Katherine
name: Jim & Dave Stevenson

name: Cesar Madarro
Brian? is it really you?
Oh great. I finally get the chance to say THANK YOU for your music and how much I love it. By the way, do you think getting older is too bad?
Oh man you're only 54 now! Just think of the rest of the people with their boring jobs forever.
Sometimes you are happy, sometimes you are sad but you know for sure there are a lot of people waiting for whatever you play or whatever you write. You don't need to work as the usual people does to survive. I love singing and writing songs, in fact I've been a singer in a band but it seems no one supports my ideas here to be famous someday, so maybe the dream is wounded to be dead. Then I think of you and how you met Roger and Fred and I realize the lucky person you are. You met the right guys at the right time. I'm sure you've been thinking about it many times...
You are a very lucky person and a lovely chap too.
I think you'll understand now the real meaning of saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!!!!

Hello Brian and have a great birthday! Thanks for the music!
Not sure this is totally relevant, but I'd like to say this. I remember back in November, I was going through a bad patch, and put some music on - and when "Back To The Light" came on, it picked my spirits up no end - it felt like there was someone out there who cared. This is a tremendous gift you are blessed with. Remember that, and use it to the best of your incredible abilities
