Exclusive: QueenOnline Interview with Patti Russo

(Please note: Contains lots of energy!)

QOL: Hello Patti. QueenOnline.com calling. Lets get to it, what is your connection to the Queen Family?

PR: Divine Intervention! Ha! I’ve been a huge fan for ages. I’d even warm up to their music before every Meat Loaf gig. Met Brian one night at Wembley Arena, when he got up to play with the band. From that moment of meeting Brian, it really has been a kind of magic! I mean shortly thereafter while I was still in London, Brian phoned me up to see if I’d be interested in auditioning for Roger for a musical that they were about to embark on called We Will Rock You!

It was very exciting to be a part of a musical from the baby years and even more exciting that I was able to play Killer Queen in Las Vegas. The rest is, as I said…a kind of magic!
