Haha gotta love Taylor and he's a real die hard Queen fan, awesome drummer as well.
His solo album from last year was pretty strong.
I didn't know he'd put out a solo album I'll have to check it out.

Most the Queen covers I know do not have great videos. The exception is The Vandals doing Don't Stop Me Now. The looks that faux Freddie receives as he walks down Hollywood Boulevard are priceless.



This is a great example of the original song being changed into a band's own interpretation.

I love the random characters in costume during the video. I've never walked Hollywood Boulevard but anything less than that would be a total disappointment.

I'm having fun listening to Queen covers. Some great posts here plus song searches through Spotify are pretty rewarding. Everything from bluegrass to death metal, Queen appeals to all.

I don't have Spotify can you list some of the covers you come across. It's a testament to Queen that so many of so many genres have covered the music. And of course some are better than others.

He's had 3 out under the name Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders. The second features appearances by Roger Taylor and Brian May.

Someone I've been to see a few times, you may know him for a song called I'm Yours, a few years back.

A handful of examples- find your own youtube links, I'm afraid. Some famous names, some obscure ones

Bruce Dickinson & Montserrat Caballe - Bohemian Rhapsody
Brian Setzer Orchestra - Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox - Don't Stop Me Now
I Want To Break Free - Holly Wilson ( she has a whole album of Queen songs covered in a bossa nova style)
Susannah Hoffs & Matthew Sweet - Killer Queen
The Melvins - Now I'm Here (surprisingly few covers of this)
Electric Six - Radio Ga Ga
Lost Lobos - Sleeping On The Sidewalk
Garth Brooks - Somebody To Love
Joss Stone - Under Pressure
The Struts - We Will Rock You
