what is that nose twitch thing that roger has developed?
i first noticed it on the bo rhap documentary, but having watched the epk for the live album it seems to be getting worse.
any ideas?

Glad someone else noticed this too. I noticed it throughout the entire 2 EPK's and he does it not like once in awhile, but at least 3-4 times...per sentence.

It was making me twitch! (just kidding), but I found it quite bizarre. He squishes up his whole face very bad, especially his eyes and his nose, up to his mouth.

I don't know if he is nervous, if it's a physical condition, if it's something from the onset of middle age, but he literally does it every couple of seconds, non-stop.

Is Roger ok?

Parkinson's Disease you might mean, and YOUNG people like Michael J. Fox have it.

But...it might just be nerves.

But don't worry just yet.

Hell, in college I dated a guy who never did this when in a crowd. But whenever he spoke to me or anyone else, one on one, he twitched more than Roger. His hands shook too. He was just a VERY nervous, shy guy and that's how he was when involved in a one on one conversation.

He was a nice guy, but damn that twitch drove me NUTS!


Also, with nervous people, USA country singer Mel Tillis has been a terrible stutterer since a child. He cannot speak, at all, without stuttering.

But....when he sings..which he loves and relaxes him, he never stutters and he has discussed this in interviews. Wierd.

Hopefully, Roger was just nervous. :)

So...some people are like this in certain situations. Hopefully, in Roger's case, it's just nervousness and I am sure he is well.

He better be, cause we all adore him too much and he cannot ever get sick. Not allowed! :)

That twitch is the result of years of cocaine abuse. Although Rog has been clean for the last 20 years or so, the damage had already been done.

Did he do cocaine? I thought that was only Freddie. Or maybe i'm just naive.

And isn't he supposed to have something wrong with his heart? Someone said there was a bloke watching him at concerts, and paramedics backstage. Anything?

Naive child, read Motley Crue's ''The Dirt'', I think around page 150, and Nikki Sixx's tale of ROGER Leading Nikki, Tommy Lee, and Cheap Trick's Rick Nielson down one hell of a debauched night that included silver platters of ''rock star'' size lines of cocaine.

The entire night and events were orchestrated by our man Roger.

Nope, I noticed it too. 2 for the price of 1. Almost all of the same/identical interviews with Brian and Roger were used for BOTH the tour EPK and the ROTC EPK. Only some of the Paul Rodgers interviews were different, like you said, including a new one from the tour in Budapest on the ROTC EPK.
