Remembering Taylor Hawkins

Hi folks. It was one year today that we lost Taylor Hawkins, drummer and occasional singer of Foo Fighters. His best friend and boss Dave Grohl would switch places and get behind the drum kit, while Taylor would sing any number of songs, including those by Queen. Why not? Taylor loved Queen as they wereContinue reading “Remembering Taylor Hawkins”

Hi folks. This is about my first years as a queen fan. I’ve told you in the first post how I had initially got into the band, to the point of trying to be a completist and because of Queen’s back catalog, there is a lot to get and I got it all, except forContinue reading “Being a Queen Fan Pt 1, Me and Bob”

Thank God It’s Christmas

Hi folks. I hope that we are all safe and warm, especially if you are getting dumped on by snow and blown away by strong winds and freezing under frigid temperatures. In southern Ontario Canada, we are getting just that, with the temperatures falling as the day progresses. We had a flash freeze and ofContinue reading “Thank God It’s Christmas”

Christmas 2022

Hi folks. This is my Christmas post, about 5 of my favourite Christmas songs I haven’t heard in any shopping mall or coffee shop, I had happened to stop in over the years.
