Have a little question: does anybody know details about Roger's cars? How
many cars he has? What his fave car? And if you have some articles about his
passion (cars, of course!) - share with group, please. I'll be very grateful
and kiss you all =))



You just gotta be strong and believe in yourself.

From rockline interview :

VIDAR: Thanks. My question was, I was wondering how the song I'm In Love With My Care came to be tied with the Jaguar commercial

RT: Hey, well, ...wrote the song a long time ago... Roger here. It was just a complete surprise to me. I had no idea, and my friend, Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, a great friend of mine, and a fantastic drummer...

BC: Great drummer.

RT: ... one of the greatest drummers on earth. Unfortunately that band have got two of the greatest drummers on earth in the same band..

BC: One singing, one playing guitar now.

RT: Yeah. And anyway he rang me and he said "Well I suppose you're getting richer. I keep hearing your song with the Jaguar thing." That was the first I knew of it, so I had nothing to do with it but I'll take the money. (laughs)

BC: That song has just been sitting there, to me, for years like a ripe plumb on a tree, waiting for the right person to say "Oh my God, let's use this to sell our automobiles."

RT: Yeah, I have to say it's quite a nice thing though for it to be associated with. It's one of our better cars,

BM: A class British car.

BC: The seat gets a little warmer now. Do you have a Jaguar, Roger?

RT: D' you know, I don't have Jaguar.

BC: You do not. Okay. Would you like to have a Jaguar? (laughs)

RT: Well I could add it to the others, yeah.

(laughing)

BC: I'm In Love With...

RT: Are they listening out there in Jaguar-land? I hope so.

BM: I've had three, actually. I don't have one of them at present, but they were pretty damn good.

All I know respect to that is that he had an Alfa Romeo in 1975, and that Roger himself said he isn`t a car fanatic, he just likes them.


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.
