Dearest Brian, you have been my idol since 1977 and continue to be just
that, not only for your talent and your love of music, but also for your humanity, your compassion and
your dedication to your fans.
On this your birthday, I wish you all the luck in love and your craft and hope that you will be happy in your
future years.  Best wishes to your children and your family.
On a side note, thank you for your congratulation to me and my new husband
on our marriage. Your card and note will forever be cherished in our home.  It is through Queen that
we met and fell in love.
Happy Birthday Mr. May.

Have a FAB B-day Brian!
We met shortly last year when you picked up Anita from the Victoria theatre, just before leaving to USA for 2 weeks (1st Oct.1999).
I had my girlfriend with me (Anita's only foreign [Holland] fanclubmember) Leonore and we were surprised and overwhelmed to meet you too! We won't forget, it was VERY nice to meet you! Anita's musical performance was great and I
wish you both the best of luck and happiness. That 10 day UK holiday was like a
fairytale for us, because 7 days earlier we met Roger on Heathrow the day we started our
holiday in the UK!!! 4 days later we met Tony Hadley and the 7th day we met you and Anita. Amazing heh?
Hope you have a nice birthday party with lotsa pressies :-)

My thanks go to you all as a group and in all honesty I have too much to thank you for.
I've got every Queen album, all Rogers solo work, all your solo work (my condolences for the late Cozy Powell)
and Your work with Five, The Foo Fighters and soon to be Guns N Roses.
Keep rocking and maybe if miracle strikes ill see you some time!

Hi Brian,
    Happy 53rd Birthday!!!!  I hope you have a great birthday and I hope all  your wishes come true!!!  I hope you get everything you've always wanted.  I've been a fan of Queen since I was 5.  I'm 13 now and your music means so
much to me.  I'm a total diehard Queen fan.  I wish so much that I could meet  you or I could go back in time and go to a Queen concert.  I listen to Queen every night for at least 2 hours.  You inspire me to try my best in everything.  Queen is my favorite band and I think that you're the best guitarist on earth.  You're like a god and you mean a lot to me.  I'm one of
your number 1 fans.  I really respect you and you're one of my idols.  I hope you have a great birthday and many joyful ones to come.
Love Always,
Buffalo, NY
