For the last few days, Queen drummer Roger Taylor has been entertaining fans in lockdown. The 70-year-old rocker has introduced some drum lessons for beginnings going through different sections of the percussion instruments each day on his Instagram account. And most recently he’s been playing the Tom Toms.
During his part one video, Taylor played the opening of classic sixties surf track Wipe Out by The Surfaris.
The Queen drummer said: “I think the first slightly complicated thing I ever heard really was Surfaris’ record Wipe Out.
“And I suddenly realised I can kinda do that.”
Taylor then went on to play that famous drum riff.
But this isn’t the first time Taylor has played some Led Zeppelin.
During Queen and Adam Lambert’s most recent tour leg in Oceania, the band performed Whole Lotta Love.
Brian May shared a video of the occasion on his Instagram account last month.
The 72-year-old wrote: “Here I’m doin’ my best Jimmy Page … the genius Zeppelin riff-maker is a constant inspiration. Vid by Pete on my trusty iPhone.”
He added: “Thanks folks for indulging us !!! It was windy – it was cold – but it was rockin’ !!! Bri.”
Lucky for Queen and Adam Lambert fans, the trio are on their Easter break so the UK and European tour dates have not been affected yet.
So far only Paris, France on May 26 has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the globe.
Nevertheless, it seem like some of their other May and June dates may get cancelled too.
