In addition to most people's misgivings about Paul Rodgers singing with Queen, but he also has the most unconvincing wig ever...

You'd think with all his wealth he'd be able to get a decent wig done? It's not even a good style!

Great singer, but doesn't suit Queen songs. His phrasing drifts from the beat too much - in a kind of hackneyed gospel/R&B style. Why can't singers just "sing" and stop doing that cheesey wobbly thing boy bands do? The WWRY musical is full of that kind of singing and it ruins the songs.

Freddie got it spot on. He could sing over the top, but it never made you cringe.

A lesson there I think.

He looks alot like Chuck Norris... But, Who gives a damn? Looks shouldn't matter in music.

Brilliant. The first time I ever noticed Pauls 'wig' I pissed myself. Bad Company were on a TOPT2 special. At guitar legends he had a bald head with curly sides, a beer gut like Johnny Vegas and about 5' tall. I wonder who his surgeon is!

I'm sure, given his surroundings, that Paul Rodgers will adapt to the style needed to pull off Queen's repertoire, though they might leave "I Was Born To Love You" and "Delilah" in the bins.

Paul brings a truly rock-solid voice to the table, one that is truly capable, totally non-cringeworthy, and won't need propping up (unlike when Brian & Roger go about trying leads themselves... totally cringeworthy.)

I'm very excited. See?

Not to mention that he is one of the most obvious recipients of Botox that I have ever seen. I like him a lot, though.

She isn't pretty with it on either. Not in my eyes anyhow.

Well call me out of the loop but I only joined as a member tonight. I just took a gander at the video clip for the Hall of Fame induction and I tried to be objective but oh my god Paul Rodgers just doesn't do it for me - he struggles at times and tries to impose a style of singing that just ISN'T the song.

Now I may be biased as an Australian (but proud of it) but the best re-release I have heard of WWRY in the past few years has been by our lad John Farnham. Now why oh why doesn't Roger & Brian think of going on tour with him because if anyone can do credit to the songs its him!! As for Paul Rodgers - EWWWW on many levels

Fair play. The old rocker is nearly 57 bless him.

At that age aren't we allowed a small furry mammal to keep the baldy-bits warm?
