Has Roger ever sang any songs lead while playing the drums live other than:
I'm In Love With My Car
Action This Day
Tenement Funster (I think he played some of the song while playing drums during solo concerts)
A Kind of Magic (Q+PR)
Say It's Not True
Thanks!  -Adam

Didn't he play on Ride the Wild Wind?



John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think he also shared lead vocals on 'No-One But You' once or twice and on few performances of 'Hammer To Fall' during first Q+PR tour.

He never played drums during the two times they did NOBY live however.

Two?

I only knew of the Dutch Queen's Day concert.

During his Happiness tour he sang and played wwry on the jazzy custom kit he had with the 5 foot bass drum, along with a few others including wild wind (should have been a single)

I don't count Action This Day as lead. That way stuff like Let Me Entertain You would also be singing lead

He sang Rock n Roll (Led Zep) song with The Cross at the Marquee in 1992 whilst drumming.

He may have also drummed and sung at the same time on a song or two on the The Cross debut tour in 1988 (possibly on part of Let's Get Crazy).  I have an audio bootleg from Town & Country Club which sounds like this happened but I dont have visuals to back it up, so someone else may be able to confirm/deny?

I was at the Town and Country club gig, I remember he played and sang on something but not sure what.

Robert Plant was in the audience!
