Excerpt



TH:

Out of all the Queen records you recorded, which has your favourite drum sound?



RT:

"I like the big, natural drum sounds and from our earlier records, Sheer heart attack stands out. Some of the drum sounds on A day At The Races, News Of The World and Innuendo are also good. Later on I think technology got in the way a bit. When you listen to a lot of '80s records-including some of ours-there are a lot of drum machines and samples. I tend to dislike that 'machine' sound."
