I just want to know your opinion on this:

In my opinion Paul Rodgers sings ok and did very good on 46664, but how could he forget the lyrics (and bad mistakes, I'VE MADE A FEW)?
Specially when he's reading?

if he wasn't reading, then it's o.k, but he was...

what do you think?








Interview?... oh, don't be ridiculous!

1. Old one- we discussed it to death...
2. Who cares...? The whole gig was a disaster anyway- the following ones seem to get better and better...

At Brixton it looked like Roger was reading the lines to one song (These are the days... I think) and they wrote them.

Actually I can tell you from my own experience that it's easy to sometimes get lyrics more messed up with a sheet of lyrics(or in their case a monitor) in front of you.

You have your eyes closed, your feeling the music, then you open your eyes right before the next verse and your eyes go directly to the wrong verse. Your brain has a synaptical collapse and you mumble something into the mic as you attempt to get orientated to the right verse.

I don't blame Paul at all for this happening in his
first real gig with the band in front of a worldwide audience. You think you could do any better? He's only fucking human.

I think Paul is doing a great job considering the task at hand.
