There are at least 30 years since we are listening to countless arrangements of the same Roger Taylor stupid lamentation track labeled under various names.
And it doesn't get better, only the message is different. Politics, isolation, depression, loss - deep subjects but indistinctive musical treatment.

He thinks that he is a sort of Leonard Cohen, a poetic conscience of the world filled with substance (while Brian thinks that he became a scientific conscience of the world).
For a drummer and a guitar player, no matter how talented they were, these are highly delusional aspirations.

Holly2003: Roger mentioned Paul Rodgers just two days ago (see BBC Radio 2 interview I posted on 24th).
He called him a wonderful singer.


Thanks for posting the interview. Good to hear his comments about Rodgers.

In 2020 there are new means to convey your thoughts to the public.
Music was a suitable vehicle in the early days of his activism and social awareness.

If Roger really insists on doing everything on music, then it's not a good idea to use the same insipid tune over and over again.
Heineken, Pringles, or Tide commercials have different musical scores.

The lyrics are pretty cool. The song as a whole, not so much. As others have said, I guess it's more of the same Roger's been doing solo in the past years.

I know our boys are pretty much retired from writing, but I can't help but wonder if a modern, rocking producer could bring out the fire within Bri and Rog if they ever decide to hit up the studio again as Queen. Or as solo artists.
