He was less flashy than his contemporaries - Bonzo, Moonie, Paice, Ward etc and certainly doesn't have the dexterity of some of the others, but he managed to transpose his solid style over Queen's wide range of styles in a manner reminiscent of Ringo.

That snare of his is tuned super low; it almost sounds like a tom. Can't imagine playing ruffs on it.

I saw Queen in the 70s when Boho Rhapsody was at its height - my favourite show ever (being in the 2nd row helped). Roger was powerful, dynamic, imaginative, versatile and ultra tight ... which will surprise no one.
