Paul Rodgers

Paul Rodgers has one of classic rock's most distinctive voices. He can be heard on a slew of familiar radio/bong-party hits from legendary bands Free and Bad Company, as well as the Firm, his '80s collaboration with Jimmy Page. He was also invited to front “Paul Rodgers + Queen” with Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor a few years back. The resulting tour and CD, which mixed material from all players' bands, proved to be an interesting mash-up. A new Rodgers solo CD, Live in Glasgow, makes its debut this week, with a concert DVD to follow. And since this show follows a long day of race-watching and beer-drinking, let's hope for a set list packed with the big guns like “All Right Now,” “Feel Like Makin' Love,” “Can't Get Enough” — and maybe even a stab at “We Are the Champions.”
