Roger went on to tell Rhythm magazine: “It’s why I was never really happy with the drums on our first album, Queen.”
He did not mince his words about why: “They sounded dead.”
Looking back, though, Roger accepts that this had much to do with prevailing techniques in the early 1970s.
He said: “At the time, though, deadening and tape were very fashionable – especially at Trident Studios where we recorded in that famous drum booth.
“That sound is good is good for certain things but it’s not what I wanted.”
As he grew in confidence and the band was able to assert more of their own direction, Roger was able to start creating the sound he preferred.
