Welcome to Shane’s Queen Site

Welcome to the redesigned version of Shane’s Queen Site, now hosted on shanemcdonald.ie and now in it’s 16th year. This Queen fan site has information about a certain rock band called Queen!! The site has information from Queen member bios and band history, Queen chords and tabs, all of which I have transcribed myself, a Full Queen Discography of mainstream Queen Albums, and Queen Polls to Queen Links, Queen related Downloads, and the quite difficult Queen Quiz (which is still being re-designed for this site).

I am Shane McDonald, Queen Fan and Queen Keyboard player with no where to go! (if you ever need a Queen keyboardist let me know). This site is extending all the time with new content and new features. Please get in touch if you have any comments or just want to say hello.

Also, if you would like a link to your Queen site or Queen Tribute Band gig dates listed here etc , please email Shane’s Queen Site on Queen [at] shanemcdonald.org ! You can also follow Shane’s Queen Site on Facebook, on Twitter @shanesqueensite and on Instagram on @shanesqueeensite.

How to play the Intro to Seven Seas of Rhye on Piano
