It's true! Rufus will be playing the drums in the band that backs Kelly Ellis on the Royal Variety Show which airs on BBC1, December 17th. The band also includes Dr. Brian May, Neil Murray, Steve Sidwell and Jeff Leach. Should be an amazing show!! BTW...Rufus is the youngest person to ever play at the Royal Variety Show! Congrats to him! Check out the picture at:

Isn't it obvious?

Not Brian May, not Kerry Ellis, not Neil Murray.

Leaves three people.  One of whom is young & blonde.

Very cool. I hope Rufus makes his dad proud.

Let our candle always burn;

Let us never lose the lessons we have learned." - Brian May

This is the first I've heard of Rufus Taylor.  Is he any good?

I bet Rufus bangs Kerry Ellis after the show. Like father like son.

Excuse me, where have you heard Rufus sing? I'd really like to have a listen.

Especially because I like his elder half-brother Felix's voice - very reminiscent of their father's, but slightly different.

AFAIK: *BHM thinks* that Rufus *might be* the youngest *drummer* to ever play at the Royal Variety Show.

Does your information come from another source?

TIA

Judging that he is wearing his backstage placard proudly, I would assume not.

It's not because you're the son of one of the best rock drummers in the world, you have the same abilities and talent. Rufus has a lot of things to prove behind his drumkit. He's not Roger.

But I know more than thousands people who would like to stand in his shoes...I mean, playin' with Brian May & Neil Murray.... THAT'S AN EXPERIENCE !!!!!

Look for Felix and Arty on MySpace Music to hear Rufus's voice.

Like I said a couple years ago when that song of theirs came out, his voice is a nice mixture of his Dad's as well as Sting (from "The Police"). He doesn't have the Rod Stewart quality to him :P but that's OK :-)

Come back and say that again when you have a record....or a new non-neo-classical instrumental (read: VOCAL) song for that matter. And one that doesn't feature an overhyped old pedophile on vocals.

i dont have to come back with anything new at all, we ALREADY have material that is better than anything rufus, muse or any other crappy band could ever create.

Luckily he's drumming then.

I wish him all the very best.

Rufus Taylor's voice is...not even close to Roger Taylor or Brian May.

The only reason you are talking about him, and posted this horrible video is because hes' the son of Roger Taylor.
