Hello all, I am in need of some information and I thought someone here may be able to help. I am currently working on solo collaborations pages on my website. Admittedly, this is not an area I'm too knowledgable of. I included a list of Roger's solo collaborations that I was able to come up with. Is there anything I'm missing? Thanks in advance and sorry for the lengthy post.

Have you checked this http://www.pemcom.demon.co.uk/queen/cameo.html ? Maybe there's something useful for you.

And I'm still not sure if Roger made something on The Great Pretender except playing in video. According to OIQFC he sung backing vocal, but for me it's more sounds like Freddie's.

I was told that he was on those 2 songs by a fellow collector. I doubt he has anything to support it was those specific two tracks. I remember reading that bit from As It Began now that you mention it...

Roads to mocow - was confirmed by Al stewart a few years ago. also, it all but says so on the very comprehensive sleeve notes.

but the 2nd al stewrt track has never been confirmed by roger or al. on a latest internet chat - al stewart was asked this very Q and said he could not remember.

the eugene wallace track which rt plays on is dangerous!

the problem is that the song track dangerous is also the lp title. like sgt pepper is both the name of th lp + 2 of the lp tracks.

so does the statement mean the lp or the track - dangerous?

the confusion is that eugene claimed rt played on the dangeous lp but could not remember which trackk.

rt claimed he played on the track dangerous - but did not know that was th lp's title.

therefore, sythising both statements, rt played on the track dangerous from the dangerous lp - and that keeps everyone happy!

I seem to recall that Roger played on Bob Geldof's latest album, but I don't think the liner notes said which tracks either...

According to the Fan Club magazine of winter 2001 Roger played on all the tracks of the Bob Geldof album Sex, age & death. On some tracks he provided backing vocals, on others percussion. I do not know on which tracks he did what.
