Roger's interview on the Steve Wright show was brought forward and played today rather than the scheduled date of 8th September. This was due to the last minute cancellation of one of his guests (Carol Thatcher I think).
Songs played were Radio Ga Ga, half of Call Me and C-lebrity. It was quite a good interview imo.
At the moment I am trying to work out a way to get this interview up here. Until then you will just have to make do when they eventually put the show back on the "listen again" feature. link
You know - it really was a nice interview.
I always find that listening to Roger is a very easy experience. He seems quite sure of what he wants to say and confident. Poor old Bri always sounds a little uneasy.
I had the pleasure of meeting Roger before the Freddie tribute at Wembley and he was just wonderful. I asked him was he excited about the show and he said..." a little nervous, really" and gave me a big grin.
I had the chance to briefly meet Brian and Roger outside of their hotel in Prague. First Brian, then Roger, then Brian again.
Both times Brian was in a hurry but he was kind enought to sign autographs. Seemed a bit forced to me but I still appreciated the gesture.
With Roger was different. We made a line to get his autograph and he turned around when it was my turn. I told him "Roger, I came from Mexico to see you..." and he returned and said "From Mexico? really?" and signed my tour book with a very big and beautiful signature.
Roger was very relaxed and didn't seem to mind signing the autographs. Brian really didn't want to be there. I imagine he was very tired or something because everyone says he's a lovely person.
