Roger Taylor was so right. The direction Queen took in this period was terrible.


Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

The comment - if you listen to it carefully - is about Paul Prenter (and a mention of him thinking Brian's guitar sound old fashioned) - and the influence he had on Freddie. And, as Roger says "hence on the band".

I don't find it at all offensive. The "gay club" comment isn't actually anti gay. It's a musical comment. But then I'm straight so what do I know about things being offensive to the gay community. I do know that wasn't Roger's intent.

OK, I've been trolled... :-)

He said that Paul Prenter tried to move Freddie (and the band) towards gay club music and he did not like that. Really homophobic of Roger that he wanted to play Rock music and not club music ;-)

Yes - Saying he wasn't keen on the music generally played in gay clubs, and would rather than play a different sort of music is SO homophobic isn't it?

Actually I think Freddie had enough of a "musical compass" not to be too influenced by Paul Prenter. Unless you count Hot Space as a counterexample. :-)

Personally I don't as I think at least 2 (and possibly all 4) of them were up for it (Hot Space, I mean).

In fact I think Roger overstates his aversion to Hot Space - with the benefit of 30 years of hindsight.

Roger is not Homophobic at all he was not into House Music. Freddie was into that Music and so was John. Sexuality has absolutely nothing to do with Music its Universal

He's not being homophobic, but saying he didn't like the music played at gayclubs really.

Someone is trying to troll the Queenzone forums with nonsense threads...

I think someone who took that clip as being homophobic is scouring the archives for homophobic quotes from Queen members thus is probably a little homophobic themselves......

Hot Space is my favorite Queen record (shoot me later), and yes, I'm gay.

If you think ANYTHING Roger said was homophobic then you need to get your head screwed on straight (no pun intended).

He might not like 'em, but I doubt he's afraid of 'em.

According to IWTBF, Roger totally is a slutty schoolgirl who likes cleaning in her spare time. I say credible.
