Came to give my thoughts on it, because I've played and watched this often in the last couple of days. I wasn't sure what to expect, I love it, very bittersweet. Goosebumps and emotion in the best possible way, at least for me. Very thought provoking for sure. I am absolutely in love with it.
My only concern/hope this will not be the last solo music from Roger, but if it is, what a way to do it.
My only quibble​, I would love a physical copy.
Thanks, Roger.

Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I'm not sure how the chart thing actually works.

For three months no-one has has a look in, with Ed Sheeran dominating just about everything, and then you're telling me that Roger Taylor comes out of the blue, and gets a number one?

Much as though I like Roger's work (and I do), can I honestly believe that a bloke who despite a fairly extensive solo career, has never had a top ten single, suddenly becomes flavour of the month?

I suspect some jiggery pokery has gone on somewhere.

Oh, btw. Nice interview Nick. :-)

Nice interview, like listening to what Roger has to say and i find him eloquent and interesting.
Loving the track and video with the stills as well.
I wonder if this supposed surge in interest from the public will spike his enthusiasm to record something else before he leaves on tour ? Hopefully we may hear something else in time.

The iTunes chart placings are purely music videos, not singles or albums - I guess not many people actually buy videos on iTunes when they can view them on YouTube etc...so Roger's track not being available elsewhere yet means that iTunes was the only source (until idiots started ripping it to other online hubs). Even so, I'm still mightily impressed, and also pleased to see a sharp, focused, no nonsense promo campaign around the release this time.(despite the ever present typos in the press release).

There is more to come from that little chat with him too...a deluxe version if you will.

Are you in a position to confirm or deny the possibility of some kind of physical release for this?

I hope that you send our interest to Roger that we want a physical release, and a new album!!

phpBB [video]


Rick Parfitt, legendary guitarist in Status Quo, was a good friend of Roger. In the year 2016 he left us, along with other legends and also friends of Roger; David Bowie and George Michael. No wonder one begins to wonder about the journey's end, when loosing so many friends in one year. :shock:

The video with Roger and Rick from 1983 is kind of unique, as it was a "rare year"; no Queen album, and no touring.
