Roger Taylor, drummer of legendary rock band Queen, is looking for talent. Taylor is holding a talent contest in order to put together a Queen tribute band. The winner of the contest will be part of the "Queen Extravaganza Tour" next year. The tour will mark the 40th anniversary of the band. Taylor, the tour's producer and music director, says the anniversary tour will be extraordinary:

“The Queen Extravaganza will not be a traditional tribute show. It’s a brand-new show specially designed to enable fans to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event,” explained Taylor, adding, “It’s going to be spectacular. It’s going to be very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises. It will be a rock celebration in the royal tradition.” -

Taylor says he is looking for 3 vocalists, guitarists, bassists, keyboard players and drummers. A panel of judges and the general public will judge the first two rounds of the competition. Taylor will judge the final round in Los Angeles at the end of the year. To learn more visit
