James keeps us all together as Roger Taylor (both on stage as well as behind the scenes). As well as bringing the thunder from the throne with his world-class musicianship, James has also been the driving force for the band - pushing forward to achieve the best possible quality for the show. His powerhouse performance is the backbone of the bands sound and his attention to detail ensures the band is constantly evolving. James is passionate about setting the highest standards to ensure audiences keep coming back for more. You won't find a harder working drummer on the Queen circuit!


James hasn't got round to writing anything in here (mainly because I haven't told him yet), but when he does, I'm sure it will be scintillating!
