For me the best thing about him is his use of the hi-hat, he opens and closes it in reverse order. ie, opens it on the beat of the snare, it really adds something strange to all their songs. Very cool.
Also, in his early years, he looks like my Auntie Anne!!!!
That hi-hat sound is his sound, and what a great finger print he has left on all Queen's music. He was amazing to watch back then, and he still is. He's just a great player!
