As solo - no, only 45th position with 'Muddy Water Blues'.

'Firm' had # 1 with 'Star Trekkin'' in June 1987.

lol! That is not "The" Firm with Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Page etc, but a spoof band who did a song about Star Trek. Not the same band!

Yeah... But it was only one number one what could be called Paul Rodgers-related in some way :)

They (second Firm) also had hit 'Arthur Daly' or 'Daley' in the 80s. I don't know why but I remember this song. I'm crazy perhaps.

Alright Now should have ebeen a number 1. I think it was kept off by some silly song that no one liked after a week.

Yes, it means so. Great bands like Uriah Heep weren't successful in UK charts too, so what? Who cares about chart position, if song is truly great.
