I Am 7

This week Ian is on Vocal duty with his cover of Ride the Wild Wind, a Roger Taylor Queen curiosity. Off their 14th album Innuendo, the band's last album to be released in lead singer Freddie Mercury’s lifetime.  We discuss the character of Roger's songwriting, including a theory by Ian that places this track as part of a trilogy, which doesn't' include his other more obvious car reference.  Do his solo efforts cast a light on this?  Ian decides to take the song in a whole new musical direction inspired by the lyrics, and we love it.
Let us know what you think @recoveringq
