John Bonham Memorial Statue Unveiled

“Our one of a kind John Bonham ‘Bonzo’ played his first gig as a young lad in Redditch at the nearby church so it is very fitting that his memorial statue stands where it does.Unveiling it for all to see on his 70th Birthday is timed perfectly just like John’s playing. Great heart and soul effort from Robert (Plant),Deborah (Bonham – sister), Pete (Bullick – brother in law) and all involved in paying respect to a phenomenal drummer, musician, brother, uncle, husband, father and friend. I will venture to see this magnificent, meaningful statue that will stand for all time, as indeed he does in our hearts. Happy birthday mate.” – Love Paul

Paul Rodgers Free Spirit Slated for June Release

2018 Paul Rodgers – Free Spirit – Celebrating The Music of Free will be available on Digital (June 22, 2018) CD/DVD & Blu-ray (June 29, 2018) and Vinyl (July 6, 2018). Pre-orders are available now here.

The 16-song collection recorded at a sold-out performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall includes inspired performances of rock hits like “All Right Now,” “Wishing Well,” “Fire and Water,” and many deep tracks—some of which were never performed live by the original band, such as “Love You So” and “Catch a Train.” Along with this collection, those who purchase the Blu-ray and vinyl can expect exclusive footage and bonus tracks from opening acts Jasmine Rodgers, artist and multi-instrumentalist daughter of Paul, and Deborah Bonham, rock and blues vocalist sister of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

“When I went down to London in ’67 I had three things in mind,” says Rodgers. “To survive, to find peace of mind, and to make music doing it. When Free came together there was a creative magic around us, something unique and different. I felt again the strength of that magic on the 2017 Free Spirit Tour. Playing the songs we wrote, I felt the love and recognition the fans have for this music. The band, the fans, and I inspired each other to create and capture these moments in time.”

“We are very excited and extremely honored to be part of this historic event,” says Bruce Quarto, president of Quarto Valley Records. “This performance, perfectly captured in a variety of formats, is truly a rare event that any Paul Rodgers fan will definitely want to watch and listen to, over and over again.”

Paul will be performing with his solo band and a few select dates with Bad Company in the upcoming months. Starting July 18, Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers will embark on the co-headlining Stars Align Tour, with Ann Wilson of Heart serving as the opening act, along with Deborah Bonham.
