I have about 700 pics in my Photobucket of his kits. Roger Taylor and Neil Peart. Those are 2 drummers I know EVERYTHING about their kits haha.
    Oh please can i have the link of your photobucket album? i love rooooo much Roger

    That sounds awesome mate, send me the link to your photobucket. The NOTW kit was the biggest Roger's kit ever got, there was also 8/10/12 concert toms. Imagine playing a 20" floor tom haha. What a guy!

    Alright gents, here it is. Sorry, I havent cleaned it up in a while. So there are a bunch of his pics on the main page and a bunch of rare ones in the Drums And Guitars album. start=allhttp://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y13...999/?start=all

    And I loved the NOTW kit. And the Summer of 76 kit. It was huge. I wish there were more pics. Queen Concerts says that he had some sort of percussion mounted to the 12 and 13" toms that he had over his floor toms but I cant find any pics to prove that or show what it was.

    EDIT. I moved all of my drumming pics into the Drums and Guitars folder.

    Queen Rock Montreal has been on Paladia a bunch recently. I recorded it and have watched it twice over the weekend. Roger is great and the band is so tight. Silver sparkle kit is killer as well. Can't believe he subsequently played bigger drums.

    Noticed the Ludwig badges weren't visible, then I noticed the toms were upside down...

    I have a Tama Granstar 18" floor tom. It's a beast!

    I would love a 20" floor tom... but I think I would rather have a gong bass!

    I love Rock Montreal. Its what got me into Queen when I was 3 years old. If it wasnt for Roger, I wouldn't be playing drums. I agree. The sound of the drums on the recording wasn't the best, but ive always been in love with it lol

    Me too...his toms sound reminds me of Ian Paice's (from Made in Japan live) and Bonzo's (which Roger loves) sounds
