RAT Rock News

Queen drummer Roger Taylor is spending his time in quarantine giving out free drumming tips to his Instagram followers, and he’s recruited some of his famous drummer friends to take part, too.

Taylor recently shared clips of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Pearl Jam/Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron sharing drumming tips. Both clips are embedded below, with Hawkins covering 4/4 beats with a drum fill and Cameron talking about grace notes.

Taylor, himself, uploaded a number of videos of himself giving various drum tips, so if you haven’t followed @rogertaylorofficial yet on Instagram and are a drummer, now would be a good time to do so.
