Recalling his musical talent on the album, Brian May had said that Taylor Hawkins that he was the most devoted Queen fan in the world.

 

“Oh my god,” Brian May says (as transcribed by MetalCastle.net). “Well, in this album, he was just a boy who’d only just joined the Foo Fighters. We’d become friends, and he came over to my studio, and [he] just beat the hell out of everything with a huge smile on his face. I hadn’t realized [it], but he’s the most vociferous and devoted Queen fan in the World.

“And I think he made a single-handed call to the new generation. I mean, I didn’t think [that] I was gonna be talking about this, you know, when I put this down. I had no idea that Taylor wouldn’t be with us anymore. I feel devastated. Roger and I both do. He was like, family to us.

“On this album, you hear on Cyborg – just going nuts – and it’s wonderful. I’m so grateful that I had those moments with him.”
