Personal

I became aware of Roger Taylor through his work with the band Queen. Since he's not nearly as extravagant as Freddie, or his lyrics as deep as Brian's, I always viewed him as the third most significant member of the group. His songs, while fun, were often overshadowed, but he's still an enjoyable songwriter and singer.
