Roger Taylor – July 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays

Longtime Queen drummer Roger Taylor turns 63 on July 26. He kept the beat on some of the band’s biggest singles, and also was credited with writing such favorites as ‘Radio GaGa,’ ‘One Vision,’ ‘A Kind of Magic,’ and ‘These Are the Days of Our Lives.’

It’s his “for me” scream in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ that launches the track into full-fledged mayhem.

He’s worked as a solo artist, but never to the same success that Queen enjoyed. He has however made a move to keep the band’s spirit alive by launching the Queen Extravaganza, which debuted earlier this year. Check out our list of Top 10 Queen Albums.

Next Birthday: Geddy Lee
