“The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story” aired on ABC last month. In the show, Queen members, Brian May and Roger Taylor explained how did they decide to part ways with Paul Rodgers and ended “The Queen + Paul Rodgers” project.
Here is what Brian May said about Paul Rodgers:
“Even though we were proud of what we had done, we didn’t want to go out there and be Queen again without Freddie. And it happened almost by accident, at an awards show I played with Paul Rodgers, who’s a hero of ours.
I remember coming offstage and Paul’s lady said, ‘Oh, you guys really seem to have great chemistry, all you need is a drummer.’ And I went, ‘Well, I think I know a drummer.’
We ended up going all around the world a couple of times with Paul.”
Roger Taylor chimed in:
“He was his own man. He belonged in the blues-soul field, at which there were no better. Our staff is a little too eclectic probably, so I think that’s why that came to an end.”
