VH1 CLASSIC ROCK RADIO REPORT, USA
11 September 2014
Roger Taylor has made a name for himself as the drummer for Queen, but the rocker has had a pretty successful solo career too and for the first time ever, you can get some of his greatest solo tracks in a new collection called Best. The set features 18 songs, from Roger’s 1977 solo debut single “I Wanna Testify,” through tunes off his 2013 set Fun on Earth. Best hits shelves on October 27th, then, on November 11th, you can pick up The Lot, a massive 12-CD/1-DVD package of Roger’s complete solo works. It includes Taylor’s five solo albums, his three releases with his band, The Cross, plus every single and remix he did with The Cross. There are also live performances, promo videos and more on the DVD plus a 64-page book.
