Incidentally, Mike Grose, Queen's first bassist is in the foreground of the lower picture.
Queen are the 5th highest selling recording artists of all time. They played their first concert in Truro, Cornwall, and made many visits in the late sixties (as 'Smile') and early 70's (as 'Queen'). Prior to joining 'Smile' and forming 'Queen' Roger Taylor gigged all over Cornwall with his band 'The Reaction'. This blog is an attempt to document these musicians and concerts in preparation for a book and fan club event.
