He really does need to shape up. Each time I see a new pic it scares me. I personally think he'll burn himself out touring. When I met him during the Electric Fire tour he looked fantastic. My ex girlfriend came with me..... she fancied the arse off him!

I was concerned when I saw the Hall Of Fame thing. He has that puffy boozy look. I hope he can get it together. It's been awhile since he's done a real tour... but it should inspire him.

I posted a topic similar to this a while back (Roger: can he still rock?....or something along those lines!)

The feeling i recieved from it was that Roger is of course fit to take on this challenge. It's Roger that seems to be the one who is the most giddy about going out thwere live again...Brian seems more then content with the WWRY Shows now.

In the thread mentioned above, i voiced my concern over Roger and if folks thought he could handle it. I was concerned about his health, mainly from various bits i've seen recently from awards shows and such where they have preformed. I guess if he really was'nt up for it, he would'nt have agreed to go ahead and tour. I am certain that Roger will not be drumming the whole time. There is no way in Hell he could do that now. I'm sure he will do a few songs behind his kit, and then do his delightful percussive enhancements ( gotta love that shaker box and tambourine..) as well as hopefully sing a few songs too!

I think back to the Vegas Aftershow gig and i see it as a sneak peek at what's to come. Roger was INCREDIBLE...once he was onstage and behind his kit he ROCKED like i have'nt seen him rock in a LONG TIME. When i saw that, i knew then that something must be on the horizon. He was awesome to behold. Offstage was another story. yes, Roger now has this grandfatherly persona about him now, but you know....Roger does'nt age really. He ages like fine wine....Mmmmm...

I don't know... Brian is maybe the one who makes more mistakes in his playing but he can "mask" it easily with his image and the huge sound. If Roger's not fit to play, his poorly tuned drums won't help him (in the past years the drums sounded somehow "high", not as powerfully as they used to).

Brian does stuff up occasionally yes. I think though it's also due to the fact that he tries to make his solos a bit different on stage than on the studio tracks. A bit of a gamble, usually it works.

All he has to do is take a couple of pep pills to do the show. I'm sure a 30 day tour with this ritual won't harm his 55 year old body (1949 right?).

Bless his little snare drumming soul..

Just saw him recently on the Wetten Das video interview (online) and God, what HAPPENED?? I'm concerned for him. he looked to be in great shape this past Summer in Vegas, but now...woo boy.

I hope everything is alright with him....

That's good...Lord knows he NEEDS it!

No offense to Roger, but he needs to get back into shape. The Wetten Das footage spooked me!

Yeah i know!

He did'nt look anything like that this past Sept at the WWRY Premeire in Vegas. He played a blistering set that made my jaw hang agape for the whole show...he was incredible!!

I know he has the stuff to rock, but he needs to brush up on his appearence a little i think.

Lose the goatee Roger! PLEASE!
