What do you guys think Roger’s peak live era was. I’d probably say early ANATO tour, but that’s just my opinion.

It is an interesting question. Roger will still playing and singing well even during the magic tour from the videos I've seen. I mean hell, he was still drumming pretty damn good when I saw him last year though he seems to lumber slowly when he's walking. Took him ages to walk up to the end of the stage. The late 70's and early 80's he was probably more energetic and 'improvised' a little more.

Can't tell.

All the credible sources and detailed v resources will never be released. An audience taper isn't going to solve that.

F*** QPL, I'll have gray hair before a "QUEENOLOGY"

The end

Lovethe band.

Drumming wise probably ADATR period. Vocally, His three albums with The Cross are superb, as he was during their live shows.

I love his work around the 1977 period (live, I mean). His kit was huge at the same and he was very creative with his fills.

Sorry for the double post - I'm so biased towards the Montreal gig (that's the best he's ever nailed the solo to end Now I'm Here imo).

His best taped performance was with Dominique or Debbie (I forget who was in the recording).

To my knowledge. Rogers always had a receding hairline since likely 1975.

He's just combed his hair forward to hide it. But i don't believe he's had a WIDOWS PEAK if ever. It's all mostly receded equivocally

I don't understand the question.

Roger's best tour leg with The Cross vocally was Germany 1988 imo. He's a little more confident overall and shows some good endurance. I'd argue that Dusseldorf, the last of 6 back-to-back shows, is the best circulating performance from the leg in regards to his vocals
