Jenny and I had our first “date night” in a year or so yesterday….and I didn’t get up early enough to write my blog this morning….so here it is…10 o’clock at night and I’m just getting warmed up.
This dude, Paul Rodgers, is one of the great rock vocalists of all time.
He does what I imagine is the true purpose of rock and roll…. really macho posturing with the vocal power to back it up.
That’s hype, though…he’s just really good.
I suppose that there are a lot of good vocalists out there.
George Michael is a good vocalist.
He doesn’t have the same kind of power this guy has, though.
I wouldn’t listen enthusiastically to a George Michael song…..or turn it up if I heard it on the radio like I do any of this old Free or Bad Company stuff.
This is one of the great rock songs, too.
Here’s a later performance of the same song by the same vocalist….with some help from Brian May of Queen.
The years haven’t slowed him down much.
That’s good to hear.
