Paul Rodgers Joined By Brian May, Neal Schon on Upcoming Live DVD
One of the more underrated periods of celebrated rock frontman Paul Rodgers' career is the patch of time he spent in the early '90s exploring his love for the music of Muddy Waters. After his star-studded solo album 'Muddy Water Blues' was released in 1993, he toured extensively to promote the project and for the first time, a full set of material from that tour is now being released on CD and DVD.
Plucked from the Montreux archives and set for release by Eagle Rock Entertainment on Sept. 13, 'Paul Rodgers & Friends: Live At Montreux 1994' is a dream concert for fans of rock and blues. Rodgers assembled a special group of his musician pals for the show, including guest spots from Queen's Brian May, Jason Bonham, Steve Lukather of Toto and Journey guitarist Neal Schon.
Additionally, blues players like Luther Allison and Kenny Neal help to round up Rodgers' incredible lineup for the Montreux performance. The combined troupe journey deep into the belly of the blues while also covering plenty of Rodgers' legendary hits from his time with both Bad Company and Free.
Rodgers' work on the stage has been well-documented with a number of live releases in recent years, but the upcoming 'Montreux' release is a cut above many of them, showcasing an especially creative era for Rodgers that thankfully will now be available for all to enjoy.
