May & Taylor on how they almost left Queen
Speaking of Queen, we also reported recently that Brian May and Roger Taylor almost left the band, having had their heads nearly turned by other suitors. May almost joined Sparks, while Taylor came very close to joining Genesis.
This was all before the arrival of a certain Freddie Mercury and well the rest is Rock and Roll history, as they say!
“Sparks approached me,” May said.
Adding, “It was after they had their major hit, ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the Both of Us,’ and we’d just had ‘Killer Queen’ out. The two brothers came round my flat. They said, ‘Look, Brian, Queen isn’t going anywhere, you’re not going to have any more hits, but we’re going to conquer the world.’ And I went, Thanks, but no thanks. I think I’m fine”.
Meanwhile, Taylor said that he felt that Genesis’ outlook on music, differed from his.
Taylor told Classic Rock, “They’re all lovely people. But I didn’t really get the music, to be honest. It was a bit too prog for me. I had a wonderful offer from Mick Ronson and Ian Hunter actually. It was going to be called Hunter Ronson Taylor. I think that would have been good”.
