He didn't play the drums. The only other Queen to participate in the Barcelona album was John Deacon.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I'm afraid that won't change the point he is trying to make. ;-)

John + Freddie = also Queen probably, in his thinking.

The only way Roger 'contributed' to Barcelona is that he and Brian finished off the Two Worlds Apart track left from the Barcelona sessions. Too bad they shelved it in favour of Let Me Live.

He contributed to Barcelona. I wrote about it just one week ago.

How did he contribute, that's an honest question.

Okay. Let Roger to say about "Barcelona" track: "I even contributed a tiny bit towards it" (Roger Meddows Taylor, 1987).

He was drunk, he probably was just trying to get credit, like when he said he'd help John putting AOBTD together.

We all know that, but what did he contributed?

His contribution was listening to the demo and saying 'yes, this is nice'.

All?.... Seems like not all... :)

I don't know, sorry. But my guess he COULD be involved in "writting process" (change one word to Fred's lyrics for instance). Another one interesting question is how John was involved in recording of Shove It...

He could have suggested, for instance, the exchange of Fred's "rise to the occassion" by some Montsy line in Spanish. But that's plain speculation.

He could show him how to switch on the drum machine... However he said he did something and untill we have other sources that may to disprove him we have to deal with the quote.

I don't understand... what is this track you're telling about? I knew that 'Africa by night' became All God's people...
