Can we have a best dressed fan? Anyone got a PSB tattoo?

I could be tempted, would be nice to meet some fellow PSB appreciators. :-)
I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he used a dotted line.

Don't have any tattoos, but would love the idea of dressing up like a theme of either Fundamental or something like that.

Good idea. You could come as Sodom and/or Gomorrah.

Or hack large pieces of your body off and come as the Numb single edit.

I go to Queen conventions in Pontins every year. It's basically a three day knees up with rare videos, interviews with people who knew the band, rare memoribilia, auction and disco. Oh. and there is always a fancy dress party with signed autographs for the winners.

Be great if there was a PSB convention.

Well I have a lot of stuff planned that I wouldn't want to talk about in case it didn't happen, however the main convention activities would be big screen multimedia PSB presentations/videos, a live DJ, dealer tables with people selling rare PSB memorabilia, special guests. I don't imagine we'd get the boys themselves, but I'd certainly be looking to get some PSB collaborators, so someone like Mark Farrow, Dave Cicero etc.

i can think of nothing worse! being in close proximity to psb fans without the prospect of the boys to relieve the torture. every time i go to a psb show, i'm always embarrassed by the fans, both in terms of their physical appearance and the way they dress, especially the home made t-shirts. and in case anyone thinks i'm being harsh, neil and chris have said similar themselves, in literally, when they discuss the horror of coming face to face with their fans for the first time and discovering that the fans weren't, in the main, the cool, the leftfield, the disenchanted, but could quite easily be simply red or queen fans.

so no, count me out.
