Roger Taylor Distressed By Cheesy Queen Cover Bands

(Classic Rock) Queen drummer Roger Taylor says he gets distressed over "cheesy" tribute acts that miss the point about the original band's music. That's one of the reasons he helped create official tribute outfit The Queen Extravaganza in 2012.

Taylor tells the Express: "Of the Queen tributes, some of them are very funny - and some of them are really not funny at all. The terrible ones are cheesy and panto-like. More about dressing up in a Brian May wig and a Freddie Mercury moustache.

"What they're missing is the fact that the music is quite complicated, and actually not easy to perform. When they're not doing it very well it's a bit distressing." more on this story
