Roger Taylor, born Roger Meddows-Taylor on July 26, 1949 in Dersingham, Norfolk, England, is a British musician, best known as the drummer and original member of the English rock group, Queen. While with Queen, he occasionally served as lead vocalist as well as a contributing songwriter.

With his unique sound, Taylor is considered by many to be one of the most influential rock drummers of the 1970s and 1980s.

In 1980s, while continuing his work with Queen, Taylor formed a side-project band, the Cross, in which he sang lead vocals and played rhythm guitar.
