53 Today

Not that Roger Taylor

Aimee Mann has a song on Smilers bemoaning the fact that she has turned 31 today. Well just wait until you hit 53 Aimee!
Amongst others I share my birthday with Sir Michael Jagger and Sir Roger Taylor the drummer from Queen.
Queen were the first band I ever saw live - at the Glasgow Apollo in 1975 supported by Mr Big.(So technically, I suppose, Mr Big were actually the first band I ever saw live!)
Only one Queen album graces the CC shelves (and is the only one ever likely to) and that is 1974's Sheer Heart Attack.From this here is  Tenement Funster written and sung by Roger himself (his Paul Simonon Guns of Brixton moment as it where).
Sir Michael is never done singing and here is a rather splendid country number Sweet Virginia from the rather splendid Exile on Main Street
