Rodgers No Longer A Servant To Queen

PAUL RODGERS will no longer be kneeling before Queen - he has quit the rock supergroup to concentrate on reforming Bad Company.
Rodgers recently toured with Queen founders Brian May and Roger Taylor and fronted the group on its first release of new material since the death of Freddie Mercury.
Fans hopes that Queen + Paul Rodgers would become a permanent fixture, but the singer insists his collaboration with May and Taylor was never meant to be forever.
And, as he plans for dates with his old band Bad Company, Rodgers tells, "At this point we're gonna sit back from this. My arrangement with (May and Taylor) was similar to my arrangement with Jimmy (Page) in The Firm, in that it was never meant to be a permanent arrangement.
"I think we made a huge success of it, actually. We did two world tours and a couple of live recordings, and... made a studio album, which was pretty historical because they (May and Taylor) hadn't really gone in the studio with anybody and recorded something like that for a very long time. So it was quite an achievement, I think."
But Rodgers isn't ruling out a possible charity concert reunion with the Queen stars: "If they approach me to do something for charity... or something like that... I'd be very much into doing that, for sure."
Queen + Paul Rodgers will release a concert album and DVD, Live in Kharkov, in June (09).
