Paul Rodgers’ musical resume is a long and impressive one filled. From his days with Free and Bad Company to The Firm, Rodgers seemingly has the magical Top 40 touch.
Free was a learning experience for the young Paul Rodgers. Now in his mid-20s, he was already a veteran in the music business. Rodgers put a band together called Peace and toured the U.K. with Mott The Hoople. He struck up a friendship with Mick Ralphs, and they began writing together. The rest, as they say, is history.
In the mid-1960’s, a teenage lad from the industrial town of Middlesborough, England, headed to London to make music. His band got a gig, and a gig meant money, food and freedom. On the way to the group’s breakthrough concert, however, the unthinkable happened: The van broke down.
Hollywood Records and Queen are launching two-year effort to reissue the entire Queen studio album catalog on vinyl LPs, plus a movie featuring the band will hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2008.
