Paul Rodgers

He has one of the most rock recognizable voices of the past 50 years, but you’ll be forgiven for not recognizing Paul Rodgers’ name right away. Chances are, though, that if you turn on a classic-rock station and hear his distinct, bluesy howl on one of the many hits he created leading Bad Company (“Shooting Star,” “Feel Like Makin’ Love”) and Free (“All Right Now”), you’ll quickly remember you’ve been hearing Rodgers’ voice for most of your life. Even after those bands split, he was the first call when Jimmy Page wanted to start a band post-Led Zeppelin (The Firm), and when the surviving members of Queen wanted to tour 10 years ago, they recruited Rodgers to fill in for Freddie Mercury. Now gigging under his own name, expect a non-stop run of hits as Rodgers rolls through all eras of his 40-year career.
