From VH1 Radio's Dave Basner:

Next month, Paul Rodgers and the rest of Bad Company will reunite for a tour. The trek, however, is just ten dates, leading many to question why it is so short. Is Paul afraid to travel for fear of catching the Swine Flu? He explained the real reason behind the smaller trek. “Well, you know, I’ve travelled and I’m not worried about stuff like that. I usually find, to be honest with you, that most of those things are exaggerated way out of proportion. You know, I’m not afraid to travel, it’s just I want to be able to focus more on waking up in one place and working on music, I think really, and that’s really the reason. I think next year I’ll probably be touring my brains out.”

The next time Rodgers tours, it probably won’t be with Queen. After spending a lot of time with them the past couple years, it seems he’s amicable parted ways with the legendary group. “Well, you know, we did a world tour, we did a second tour of Europe and the Far East and Eastern Europe and we did a studio album and I think we’re kind of leaving it there gently. It’s out there for us to do things in the future if there’s something, a huge charity say like Nelson Mandela, I’m always open to that, but I think we are pretty much done.”

Fans can see Paul and the rest of Bad Company when the group kicks off their reunion tour on June 20th in Charlotte, North Carolina. For all the dates, head to BadCompany.com.

this kinda makes me sad that paul is 'done' with Queen. we all know that he was not as great as Freddie but he was something and now hes 'done' with them just because they've done one world tour, one european tour, and a studio album. really it dosnt seem so much to me.


stay sweet baby believe that we got everything we need!

He should be afraid of swine flu... crying out loud, you can almost see his hooves.

Oh yeah?  What's he doing now?  Haven't heard much material from him in nearly 20 years.

 



 



I've got a band, a hot trophy wife, and a bunch of Brian's money now.



 



You've got a bunch of posters, T-shirts, CDs, and 18 years of heartache.
