Queen icon Roger Taylor gives a rare look inside his covid retreat ‘God help us all’

Queen’s Roger Taylor admits meeting Adam Lambert was ‘fate’

Queen fans are desperately waiting for news about when the interrupted Rhapsody World Tour will resume. The band had completed the North American, Pan-Asian and Australasian legs of the tour when the global pandemic halted live performances. In teh meantime, band members Roger, Adam Lambert and Brian May have put together the Love Around The World compilation, Roger was promoting the release of the Concert Film which accompanies the Number One album.

Roger posted a new video that started with the distinctive sound of light drumming, later revealed to be the star himself on some bongos.

It panned around a large room, stacked with all types of drums and percussion instruments.

Fittingly for a man who is famously fast and nimble with his hands, there are also some impressive pinball machines.

In the video, Roger told fans: “Hi everybody, it’s Roger here, I’m deep in the heart of Covid, God help us all, eh?

“Now look, our DVD is gonna be downloadable at the end of the month.

“If you’re really bored and you need a pick-up and you want to be really entertained by some great rock and roll and some great visuals, which I think are really so important.. Our album Live Around The World is downloadable. Do enjoy it!

“Like Adam said, put on some glitter, make some cocktails and have some fun.”

Roger has given glimpses into his home life before.

The drummer, of course, has probably the world’s biggest memorial to his much-missed bandmate Freddie Mercury at his Guildford home.

He said: “I have a statue of Freddie in the garden, which I love, it’s great, it’s very big. I also thought it would be very funny to have the statue there and I think Freddie would have found it hilarious. He would have found it really funny.”

The Queen star spent much of the lockdown last summer in Croatia. In the UK, Roger also has a beach house in Cornwall.

His main residence is Puttenham Priory in the village of Puttenham, near Guildford in Surrey.

Roger lives there with his wife Sarina Potgeiter.
