Do you know PR's stuff ?

I' m a Queen fan for 24 years and even though I know about the existence of Paul Rodgers I've never been a fan or even bought a Free or a Bad Company record.

But I decided to bought some Paul's recordings to see what he's doing. Well, he's the new Queen main vocalist...

So I decided to bought a Live CD, and today, I bought "Bad Company in concert : Merchants of cool" (2002).

VERY Great stuff. Soulful, hard rocking, great voice. I hope they will play some PR material (well, not too much, this isn't a PR tou but a Queen tour).


So people :

Listen to "Can't get enough", "Feel like Makin'love", and above all the track "Bad Company" : Brian could KILL on this one ! Sounds wonderful.

For how long something happened in the Queen world? This will be exciting and FRESH.

We're so lucky.

Free were one hell of a band. As were Bad Company.

To me, Paul was the driving force too.. His vocals are unsurpassed on those classic recordings.

What's the best Free album to pick up? Or is there a decent Greatest Hits one of some kind...?

Sorry folks - but since this news has broken I've gone and listened to three of Paul Rodgers solo albums (as I was already familiar with Free and Bad company)

People keep going on about how he's some kind or rock legend or icon - in my opinion he's just like a heavier version of Rod Stewart. His solo albums are pretty weak too. I found two decent songs on three albums! Has anyone else listened to his solo stuff?

I have the album Muddy Water Blues which features Paul on vocals and some amazing guest guitarists including Brian May , Slash and Steve Miller among others. I find the album very good.

Ignore the bulk of the Bad Company material - they were a compriomise caused by the demise of Free.

To get the best taste of what Paul is / was capable of, try to get hold of either "Tons Of Sobs", "Free Live" or "Free" - available widely on Amazon.com Alternatively, get hold of the "Songs Of Yesterday" box set.
