Happy Birthday Roger Taylor!
Roger Taylor was definitely the “cool one” in one of my favorite bands — Queen.
He wrote killer songs. He was off the hook on drums. And he had an amazing voice, doing a lot of the “screams” on earlier albums and could sing really fast too. Check out “Modern Times Rock ‘n’ Roll” on the first Queen album.
And he was absolutely beautiful. And still is. He’s one of the hottest older rockers around, in my opinion.
I had the opportunity to see Roger Taylor perform twice in concert. Once with the original Queen line-up in 1982, and again in 2005 when the remaining Queen members, Roger Taylor and Brian May performed again with Paul Rogers singing lead vocals.
It’s always a thrill when the lights dim and Roger Taylor showcases doing his song, “I’m In Love With My Car” and goes into his roaring drum solo.
He is certainly a legend!
