Paul Rodgers: “The album I made with Queen could have been better”

Paul Rodgers: “The album I made with Queen could have been better”

Paul Rodgers takes us through his career in albums in the new issue of Uncut, dated April 2014 and out now.

The singer discusses his work with Free, Bad Company, The Firm and solo, along with his one-off collaboration with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, The Cosmos Rocks.

“We did some amazing shows. We played Latvia, and the President came up and played drums on ‘All Right Now’!” says Rodgers. “I thought, ‘Wait’ll I tell the folks back home.’

“I honestly don’t think we were quite ready to go into the studio. We could have done it better.”
