A number of rock ’n’ roll greats worship Paul Rodgers and his incredible voice. What do some of the biggest names in the business have to say?
“Paul Rodgers has been, and still is, by far, one of the finest talents of our musical genre”
 — Jimmy Page

“Paul was a hero to Freddie and us when we were starting out. When I first worked with him, I was in awe of him.”
— Queen’s Brian May

“I am a huge fan. His voice is probably the greatest rock-blues voice we have here in the U.K. I remember when we first played on a show with Free, The Small Faces were on the bill. Steve Marriott and I stood stunned at the authority of Paul’s sound, style, and control. They were the tightest, simplest and straightest band alive in their time. Every one of them was a master of simplicity and dignity — a word you can rarely use in our game.”
 — The Who’s
Pete Townshend

“Even though we’ve both been in the same business for 40 years each, I don’t think we’ve ever actually met, but I’ve always admired Paul Rodgers voice and his albums with Free, The Firm and Bad Company. Long live Paul Rodgers!”
 — Ozzy Osbourne

“Paul Rodgers is the best singer in rock and roll; no one else comes close. His range, his tone, his phrasing; it doesn’t get better than him. Paul is my favorite rock-and-roll singer. I think he is perfect for Queen, and Freddy Mercury was a hard act to follow.”
— Ritchie Blackmore

“From the band “Free” in the ’60s, to the more recent years as the lead singer of Queen, I have always liked Paul Rodgers’ voice a lot. He is truly an inspiration and it’s great to see him rocking the world. Happy 40th anniversary, Paul.”
— Scorpions vocalist
 Klaus Meine
