Legendary singer Paul Rodgers (Bad Company, Free) recently spoke to Ben East of Dubai's The National about the latest Queen + Paul Rodgers album, "The Cosmos Rocks". A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. On singing Queen's greatest hits his own way: "Should I attempt to do Freddie Mercury impressions? Nobody should attempt to do Freddie Mercury impressions. Only Freddie Mercury could do Freddie Mercury. He was absolutely brilliant I loved him to pieces and I had a great deal of respect for him." On whether it was nerve-racking the first time he prepared to go on stage with Queen: "No, not nerve-racking. But it was challenging and extremely exciting. We were rehearsing in this empty auditorium and you had all these cleaning staff popping their heads in going, 'What's going on?' And at that point you can feel the power of it all, the intensity of the songs and what they mean to people. It was a good sign, you know, that these songs still had a life." Read the entire article from The National.
