LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 01: Drummer Roger Taylor of Queen + Adam Lambert performs as the group kicks off its 10-date limited engagement, "The Crown Jewels," at Park Theater at Park MGM on September 1, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada; LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 20: Musician Jeff Beck performs at the Greek Theatre on October 20, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

Roger Taylor sang on a number of Queen‘s songs, but it’s certainly easy to get overshadowed by someone like Freddie Mercury.

So, in honor of Taylor’s birthday today (July 26), let’s take a look at a performance from the June 2011 “A Picnic Concert by the Chapel on the Lake” at Wintershall Estate in England. The clip below sees Taylor not behind his drum kit, but joining Jeff Beck in providing the vocals for “People Get Ready,” which the guitarist famously covered with Rod Stewart in 1985.

As far as filling in for someone else on vocals, Taylor does an outstanding job playing the role of Stewart during the moving performance.
