***UPDATE:***
geez, it just sounds like that old interview again


Maybe Roger is confusing "not social" with SOCIOPATH. If he is, he's either trolling JD or being a dick

There’s a quote from the recent documentary. It’s all rehash of stuff we’ve heard before, and can mostly be found in Wikipedia anyway. There’s no new interview with Roger.

yeah. that's what I was thinking.

But the article said 5/10/2019


How they can keep reposting old shit as new shit, is beyond me. Journalism is dead man...

@matt z

I think Roger probably meant "sociophobe"

No I think he's right. I'm a sociopath and it's no biggie. People are fucking awful. Kudos to John.

If Roger genuinely didn't mean sociopath, you would think he/Brian/QPL would have apologised/published a correction. These 2 parties are at war, big time. The repeat negative comments about John - if John was "ill", what's with the attitude from Brian and Roger?

It does seem weird that John doesn't speak to Brian or Roger anymore. I'm not defending Roger or am against John but if you knew someone for 26 years and then that person decided never to see you again let alone speak to you then perhaps Brian describing John as 'delicate' may be the reality.

I just hope that John is happy, and that Brian and Roger are still in contact with John, even if it's not personal but on business terms.

They haven't spoken in about 20 years, except through lawyers.

Of course it's frustrating for Brian and Roger. We can only wonder about the complexities of these relationships between them, which began about 50 years ago. And we still have no idea how or why they fell out. And I'm sure we never will. Few things in the world of music are more tight-lipped than this one.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

I think there is a proper reason for John Deacon to not be speaking to Brian and Roger even in private. I mean, it is one thing to not want to be in the music industry but quite a different matter to not even speak to your old band mates. Definitely more going on here than meets the eye. Future will tell.
