By Amy Christa Ernano: –
No — Paul Rodgers is a great singer, for my money one of the best rock has ever seen (and as a straight woman, his voice is also sex personified — “aural sex” if you will). Freddie Mercury was a big fan of Rodgers’ voice. He was the primary influence of Ronnie Van Zant (per Skynyrd producer Al Kooper, Ronnie got at least one song on each album in which he tried to sing like Paul). John Mellencamp has called him “the best rock singer ever”.
Paul Rodgers is a legend.
