An old 1999 interview had been revived in a new article about Roger Taylor’s days in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, where he was born in 1949 in West Norfolk and Lynn Hospital. Read the full article from Eastern Daily Press here.
It was an idea I had; a simple word play really. On the one hand the electric fire is a very ordinary domestic appliance, a rather unglamorous one, and on the other hand I suppose it sounds a bit like it’s electric and its on fire. I just liked the concept of the two meanings, and then I came across a painting done by Tim Mara from the Royal College of Art, and it’s just a hyper real electric fire, that’s what it is, a two bar electric fire, and I liked the painting a lot and just thought that fits very well – for me that was the sleeve. Then the record company told me to put my face on there as well, so, sorry about that folks.~Roger TaylorSource: "Electric Fire" press release
