Launch Radio Networks reports: A live CD and DVD from the European shows that QUEEN & PAUL RODGERS finished last month is on tap for later this year. The band recorded every concert they played, but they only shot one in its entirety, on May 9 in Sheffield, England. Work has begun on listening back to the tapes, which should lead to a live album with the best performances from the tour, and a version of QUEEN's "Fat Bottomed Girls" might come out as a single. No release date has been announced, but the package is expected for later this year.

Rodgers told Launch that he approaches music from a completely different place than the late Freddie Mercury did. "He's classically trained, whereas I come out from blues and soul," Rodgers said. "Our writing styles are different. I tend to go for a very simple lyric with lots of space, he went for quite a wordy approach — not to say that either one is better or worse, it's just different."
