Pretty good interview, but I keep asking myself why Brian mistakes/confuses/can't remember
important bits of Queen's career. Like he has said he never played It's a Hard Life previously
Prince's Trust on 2010, he says in this interview that Queen were recording "You're My Best Friend"
's video in the backyard of Roger's house on that cold and snowy day (kinda his words).

And I wonder how much of their career are he aware of. Does he watch videos, listens to old records,
reads about Queen?

Also he struggles to remember the name of the track Freddie wrote in
Montreux looking at the lake in his final moments... actually, Roger says it,
cause he can't quite remember A Winter's Tale, a song re recorded not so
long ago.

Do you remember everything you did 25 years ago, of course he's going to forget some things. He's in the band he's not a fan of the band.  I can't see why he should be expected to remember every Queen fact.  These days he's more interested in badgers.

Spot on.

Roger has a better memory than Brian, but perhaps with good reason - Brian has been far busier than Roger.  Brian has done many side projects and sessions, gotten his PhD, and dug deep into stereo photography and animal rights issues.

During that interview the DJ asks Roger what else he does, he says he likes watching football.

So maybe that's why Roger remembers things from 15, 20 and 30 years ago better than Brian does - he hasn't been nearly as busy.
