Taylor Admitted That The Song “Was Pretty Damn Good”
In a new interview with Mojo magazine (via Classic Rock), Queen drummer Roger Taylor talked about the new Queen song he was writing with guitarist Brian May and frontman Adam Lambert. In February, May revealed that they were working on the track in Nashville during a gap in their tour.
Taylor now claimed that May “suddenly lost interest” in it.
“Brian suddenly lost interest and I don’t really know why,” Taylor said. “We started it in Nashville when we were all quite tired. We couldn’t decide on a title and the lyric felt a little too negative for Queen, maybe. But it was pretty damn good, and I hope it comes to light.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Taylor also discussed the possibility of a sequel to their box office hit biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
“My feeling is that one biopic’s probably enough,” he noted. “But I’d be daft to rule it out. If someone can come up with a wonderful script that has a glimmer of truth about it, we’ll see. But in a way we’re our own hard act to follow, and we don’t want to risk doing anything that isn’t going to be great.”
“Maybe that’s one of the things that keeps us out of the studio these days,” he added.
Taylor is set to release his solo album titled “Outsider” on October 1.
