Roger Taylor gives a wonderful interview in the June 2005 Issue of Classic Rock Magazine just hitting the USA.

Page 51 In article ''The 50 Greatest Drummers In Rock''
Co-written by Guest Editor, Velvet Revolver Drummer, Matt Sorum. Wonderful Multi-Tribute piece to Roger Taylor!

#37 Roger Taylor, Band: Queen, Defining Moment: Radio Ga Ga Gorgeous color photo of Roger in his glamorous 1970's period, in a silver sequined, brocade costume, shown simultaneously playing drums and singing vocals. Caption ''Taylor-made: Roger is one of Sorum's faves''.

Interview: ''Roger Taylor, Talking Ga Ga''
Nice, detailed interview with Roger discussing his implementation of drums to compliment, highlight, and give color to songs, his ''playing from the heart'', his drum kit, his ''big, fat, ambient, monster drum sound'', his inspirations/influences, and what current artists he admires. Excellent in depth interview.

Article left top side bar to Roger's Interview
Ecstatically praises Queen as a multi-talented landmark band, discussing Freddie's singing and songwriting, Brian's guitar playing and songwriting, John's bass playing and songwriting...and then focuses on Roger's sterling brilliance as a drummer, songwriter, and singer.

Following the article are Matt Sorum's in depth glowing personal and artistic reflections and experiences of, with, and being inspired by Roger.

Here in the USA in my state of Maryland it's in Barnes and Nobles Bookstores, and Record and Tape Traders Stores.

Little piece about Queen in an article/biography about the USA band Kansas in there too on page 77.

.......But the Roger piece is great.

......All on page 51.

...You get Roger's interview, the Queen/Roger tribute article, Matt Sorum's tribute article too, the gorgeous photo of Roger. WOW!

Thank you Arlene, but since I'm from Italy and my English is preatty crap, I still don't understand if Classic Rock out in the UK is the same out in the USA...
Do you have an internet address of the USA magazine?
The UK one is http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/, but OF COURSE it isn't update....

No...it is a UK Magazine ONLY..and the USA gets it as IMPORTS ONLY and we get it about 2 FULL MONTHS behind when it comes out in the UK.

We only JUST got the June 2005 issue here on the East Coast USA Friday June 24...when I hear that the August 2005 issue is already out in the UK.

We in the USA won't get the July issue for a good month or so, then August issue in about 2-3 MORE months.

So you better back order it directly from them.

Oh, thank you Arlene, now I got it!

I'm happy to hear it is the same issue, maybe I can find it in Milan 'cause we have it a month late too.

Actually, August issue at the end of June in UK sounds "strange"... :-)))

Thanks again!
