I'd like to know what fans think of Roger. A attractive man, idiot, intelligent, cheater, gr8 drummer, many people have different opinions of him. Coming across very well on TV... Roger Taylor had known Dominique for many years, got married then a few days later got divorced. That changed the opinions of some fans about his private life. Many girlfriends, (Debbie Harry one of them) use of marjuana, dentist student, always wears glasses, overall what is your opinion of Roger.

(I like him, but I think he has done some silly things in his time).

"always wears glasses".  lol - Yep, that's basis to form an opinion.

Seriously though, as drummer, I love Roger.  He's the best.  He's in my favourite band, so even better.  His stage personality makes me think that he's a fun loving guy, full of mischief. In reality though, I don't know him.  We know what's reported in the news, but we never know what truly goes on behind closed doors.  Therefore, we can't comment.
Musically great.  Personally - who knows?

Don't know how he he measures up against other drummers, since I don't know enough about the technical aspects of drumming. I believe his drumming in Queen was quite good, but I don't really spend a lot of time listening to the drum line.

I like Roger's songwriting and solo work, so overall, I'd say I'm a genuine fan of his.

Roger taylor my fav member of Queen, Ahh we all make mistakes in life etc, But Roger is I would think the most talent musician in Queen the guy play drums, play piano, guiter, bass. key boreds but most overall a fantastic singing voice,

As a person i like his personality, His private life is the way it should be. I'm glad he got married without the media really knowning, why should the media have any1 to do with a marriage life? None at all :)

The way I understood the story is that Roger married Dominique only for the sake of his two kids, as a 'requirement' of some sort. Almost instantly, he moved in to live with his then current girlfriend Debbie Lang. With her, he had 3 kids.

I don't recall seeing any news about him divorcing from Dominique but he must have done it because he just got re-married.

Anybody know what's the truth to this?
