PAUL RODGERS Not Closing The Door On QUEEN Teamup

March 3, 2010

The Pulse of Radio reports: Nearly a year after parting ways with Brian May and Roger Taylor of QUEEN, Paul Rodgers says that he's amenable to teaming up with the pair for special occasions. After a five-year-run, Rodgers announced in May 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 Rocks", were caught completely off guard.

Rodgers explains that there are absolutely no hard feelings between him, May, and Taylor, but stresses that his time with the group spiraled into a longer commitment than he imagined. "It did kind of escalate a little bit, and it was a lot of fun — I really, really enjoyed it," he said. "But I did turn around and I looked at how much time . . . I said, 'Wo, I've been with these guys for four years!' And I didn't want to lose my own sense of identity. I felt that I was being sucked into another entity — which is a beautiful thing — the thing that they do. So we've left it open. So, if there is some charity work or some shows like that to do, y'know, we could come back together and do that. That's how we've left it."
