RIVER ROCK CASINO RESORT PRESENTS PAUL RODGERS

THURSDAY • JUNE 26

Richmond, BC – Musicians and critics worldwide have dubbed Paul Rodgers, “THE VOICE”. Never before has any artist led three bands to international success in addition to creating a successful solo career until Paul Rodgers. He is undeniably one of music’s most distinctive vocalists. Rodgers first shot up the international radio charts with his 1970 rock anthem, “All Right Now” with the band, Free. In 1973, he formed Bad Company who went on to release twelve albums … six of which were certified Multi-Platinum. Their hits include “Feel Like Making Love”, “Can’t Get Enough”, “Shooting Star”, “Bad Company”, “Run With The Pack” and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy”. After leaving the group in 1982, he released his first solo album, Cut Loose the following year. He then teamed with Jimmy Page in 1984 to form The Firm which resulted in two albums and the hit singles, “Radioactive”, “Satisfaction Guaranteed” and “All the King’s Horses”.

In 1991, he formed The Law with drummer Kenney Jones where they produced the hit single, “Laying Down The Law” which ranked #1 on Billboard’s AOR charts. His Grammy nominated solo album, Muddy Water Blues was released two years later and celebrated Rodgers’ blues roots and respect for Muddy Waters … one of his primary influences. In 1999, he won the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Music Awards Association. That summer, he hit the charts with the #1 single, “Hey, Hey” which was one of four new tracks off Bad Company’s Anthology. The second single, “Hammer of Love” reached #2 on the rock charts. His most recent studio album, The Royal Sessions was released last month and features Rodgers digging
into a set of deep Southern soul and R&B songs from the 60’s and 70’s. Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, Tennessee with many of the musicians who played on the original tracks, the album reached #1 on Billboard’s Blues Albums chart. Rodgers will be performing for one night only at the River Rock Casino
Resort on June 26, 2014.
