“He wasn’t completely and utterly fully formed. But y’know we were in our infancy.”
Queen guitarist Brian, who was also on the podcast, remembered Roger’s mother being irritated her son had such long rock star locks saying, “What are you doing and why haven’t you cut your hair?”
Despite her reservations, Roger’s mother put up the band at the Taylor family home.
On their 50th anniversary this year marking when Deacon joined, Roger said: “I can’t believe…50 years since we started the band, yeah just incredible.
“You think, ‘oh maybe we’ll be going in 18 months’ when you start, but you don’t think 50 years ahead, it’s just extraordinary.”
Sadly Queen and Adam Lambert’s summer tour of the UK and Europe has been postponed to 2022, but there have been a few surprises to mark the band’s milestone.
There will be 50 in total to celebrate Queen’s milestone, while last year the band released a live album featuring highlights with Adam Lambert.
Aside from touring, next year marks Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee and we asked Brian May if Queen and Adam Lambert would be up for performing at the concert.
The 73-year-old, who famously played the national anthem on the roof of Buckingham Palace for the monarch’s Golden Jubilee in 2002, replied: “Oh yeah, well that’s a thought. If they invite us, yeah, I don’t see why not!”
