Breaking Free of Queen? Roger Taylor’s Fun in Space


Full text not available from this repository.


This chapter presents a stylistic analysis of Roger Taylor's first solo album Fun in Space. The Queen drummer recorded the album while Queen was at the peak of its commercial success in the early 1980s, and thus it raises interesting questions around stylistic originality and derivation. It is suggested that half the songs on the album relate well to the current style of Queen, while the other half present a stronger representation of the drummer's individual musical voice.
