inspiring rog

Hey Katy. This is a question for one of the greatest "groove masters," Roger Taylor. What kind of drums are you playing now? Who inspired you as a child to play the drums. Thanks Gregg Pierce U.S.A

"Hi Gregg-I'm playing my 'vintage' custom made Tama Artstar kit [the one I used at live aid] and a TD7 Roland electronic kit-but I do rather fancy one of the new Tama Starclassic kits.The first drummer I was aware of was Ringo Starr but my real influences were Paul Thompson [Roxy Music] Dennis Davies [David Bowie] Steve Jansen [Japan] and Tony Thompson [Chic]. Regards Roger"
