Queen’s iconic musician, Roger Taylor was recently interviewed by Planet Rock to celebrate Queen’s Band of The Year award.
Planet Rock magazine revealed a little sneak peek from the upcoming issue and revealed how Roger got really mad about the people who criticize the legendary Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Here is his statement:
“We’re a funny old country, aren’t we? The trouble with us is, we’re too f***ing popular, and a lot of the media just hate that.
There were some decent reviews but there were many that were kinda sneering and superficial. I thought, ‘You just don’t get it, do you? You weren’t moved, and whatever, but f*** you actually. F*** you all the way to the bank, actually.”
“But bad reviews usually mean that it’s going to be really successful. I think people know a lot more than film critics, and the word of mouth via social media is so much more powerful than a review from a guy who probably watches 40 movies a week, and has probably lost the essence of the joy of a movie.”
