Paul Rodgers Would Front Queen Once Again [VIDEO]
Despite a busy solo career, commitments to Bad Company — not to mention

up with Queen again. After hearing about Roger Taylor‘s comment
about Queen + Paul Rodgers possibly reuniting to play at the 2012 Olympic

After a five-year-run, Rodgers announced in May 2009 that Paul Rodgers +
Queen had called it quits. Although some industry insiders were aware of the
impending split, fans that were anxiously waiting for the band to finally
announce North American dates in support of their 2008 album The Cosmos

Just as long as it doesn’t interfere with bad Company.
And I have yet to see them live.
