Picked up a copy of the complete new album "Return of the Champions," which for some reason is not here on iTunes. This rocks!! The combination of the masterful musicians of Queen, with the dynamic voice of Rodgers totally works. Granted... Paul Rodgers does not sound like Freddy Mercury, who had a unique voice. But... these are great tunes, and Rodgers does them total justice. And a few Bad Company tunes thrown in for good measure. This single will give you a taste, but pick up the 2 cd set... totally worth it. Or maybe iTunes will add it before too long!
This is a great combination. Dont listen to people who say you shouldnt try to duplicate Freddie's voice. Which is true you shouldnt. But they didnt, Queen got a great new lead singer who adds a great blues feel to the music. I should know I saw them in concert in New Jersey and it was awsome. But i would Recomend the whole concert album Because its alot etter and has alot od songs,
"Paul Rodgers" a voice to be reckoned with!!
We always hear that no one can be Freddie Mercury, and I'm sure Paul Rodgers would agree with that statement. But Paul brings such an amazing taste to the sound of Queen. His vocals have survived almost four decades. His bluesy tone can never be imitated. He never tries to imitate Freddie Mercury by any means. The complete album is a fantastic effort by the entire band and should be prasied. I was able to see them at the Hollywood Bowl on tour in 05'. I was fortunate to see both Queen, Free and Bad Company back in the day. The evening at the Hollywood Bowl was brilliant. The album is incredible!!!
