Ask Katy

Dear Katy, I have a question for Roger:

When watching some recent live clips, I got the impression that Roger was chewing "chewing gum" while drumming. Also, it looked as if the chewing rhythm was not 'in sync' with what he was playing. So, my question - if my observation was correct is: Doesn't it irritate you when chewing a different rhythm than you are playing? Or is it even a new gum-drum-technique to keep up the rhythm? And, of course I would like to know whether you have a preferred taste in chewing gums. All the best wishes from Germany, Beate

"Thank you for the question Beate, but the truth is...I never actually chew gum while I am playing. RT"
