Happy Birthday to the legendary Paul Rodgers, who celebrates his 64th birthday today (December 17th)!!! Over the decades Paul Rodgers has remained one of rock's most beloved voices fronting such legendary bands as Free, Bad Company, the Firm, and Queen + Paul Rodgers. Over the summer Rodgers reunited once again with his Bad Company bandmates for a 24-city 40th anniversary summer tour, with the group sharing co-headline billing with old friends Lynyrd Skynyrd. Bad Company is currently in post-production for their upcoming documentary called Movin' On, which chronicles the band's 2010 gigs. No release date has been announced.
Paul Rodgers told us that when putting together a setlist for a band as beloved as Bad Company, you really need to include all the classics in the show: "I think that if I went to see, y'know the (Rolling) Stones and stuff, I'd wanna hear the big hits. And I have to admit that probably the way people feel when they come see Bad Company. They want to hear those big songs. I think, too, these songs -- they're from the '70s, a lot of them -- but instead of meaning less, they sort of mean more because they sort of gather memories to them. Even when I play them I go through (laughs) so many things 'cause I have been through so much of my life with these songs, so I understand that."
