Roger the Bassist?

I recently have seen two photos of Roger with a bass guitar, one is from the 80's and the other is fairly recent. Does he play bass on the side or was the guitar just a photo prop?? Regards, Valerie

”Valerie...not really, although my first instrument was bass guitar, however I was so bad that I decided to have a crack at drums instead and none of the people I knew at school wanted to play drums as it meant the girls didn't notice you as much sitting right there at the back of the stage! RT”
