Paul Rodgers biography
Paul Rodgers is one of the greats, having first risen to fame in the early 1960s and had a more-or-less continuously successful career ever since. His first real success came in 1968 when he helped write the song 'All Right Now' for the band Free, which quickly rose to #1 status. Free was considered one of the most popular bands in Britain, right behind Led Zeppelin, though their popularity didn't last and they broke up in 1971, after which Rodgers formed the band Bad Company and rose to truly legendary status. He helped Bad Company rise to No. 1 over and over for the next 11 years; some of his most memorable hits include "Bad Company" and "Feel Like Making Love". In 1982, Rodgers quit the band to spend more time with his family but was back performing as a solo guitarist/singer by the following year. Rodgers has played on and off with different bands ever since and paid his dues as a soloist.
As a soloist, Rodgers' breakthrough came in 2000, when his sixth solo CD, "Electric", came out. One of the singles from this CD, "Drifters", was Rodgers' first solo hit to reach the coveted #1 spot on the Billboard Top 40 Hits chart. Rodgers soon found himself playing to sold out houses in Australia and the UK as well as in the United States and Canada, and his popularity grew from there. Rodgers is constantly putting out high-quality work. Every band he's been in, except for The Firm and Law, both formed during his early attempts at a solo career, has quickly reached superstar status. Bad Company was especially successful, having gone platinum no less than six times.
