Have been playing for twenty plus years, we tend to do a few Queen numbers in sets and in the past we have done Tie you Mother down, We will ROck You, Champions, Crazy Little Thing, The Show Must Go on, It's Late and a few more I guess.

I own a very similar kit to Roger, Silver Sparkle, Ludwig, big sizes and pretty much the same configuation these days.

I change it round and have a few spare drums so sometimes it is just the same as his 80's kit and other times it is smaller.

Currently on order from Ludwig are two new floor toms and a smaller tom to replace some that have just rocked too much over the years!

I play a lot of Queen numbers like CLTCL, Radio GaGa, Rock You(Fast and Slow) and Champions. I have many cymbals, two cowbells, two jam blocks, and even have a SPD-6,an updated version of Roger's Octapad that he used on the '86 Tour. Cheers!!!!!!!!!!

My drum set has taken much abuse over the years, as I seemed to have channeled the spirit of Keith Moon at one point - whenever I would get frustrated or really into a song, I would just throw my set around the room. So it's all scuffled up and the heads haven't been replaced in years, but I still do drum every now and then if the mood suits me.

As for Queen songs I can play... well, most of them. I can't really think of any off the top of my head right now, but I will say that 'Dead On Time' and any live version of 'Now I'm Here' are particularly difficult to keep up with. No wonder Roger's so exhausted at the end of 'Now I'm Here'!

I started to learn how to play drums... Everyone says I'm weird... You know, I'm a girl and I'm in love with DRUMS and DRUMSTICKS and all that stuff... I'm just crazy...
But I can only play WWRY (who can't?!) and MADE IN HEAVEN.

I've been playing drums for as long as I've been a fan. 28 years. Roger was the reason I started playing after I bought News of the World. Growing up, I would come home from school and put on my lp's and just learn every song front to back. Mostly the 70's material. But when I started playing in bands my drums were no longer at home. But I could "airdrum" every song after 1982.
