“This Place Called Home” is a song celebrating the heritage of the working man, the father and son who for generations have proudly contributed to some of the world’s greatest industrial wonders. Featuring Paul Rodgers and his son Steve. This is their first recording together as father and son. All proceeds from the single will be donated to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in Middlesbrough.
Paul originally hails from Teeside an area recently affected by the closure of the large Steel plant at Redcar. In light of these recent events here in the UK, this song is a tribute to the millions of men who have worked in the Steel Industry.
“We can’t stop progress but this song marks the passage of the steelworks where my father worked. My wife Cynthia suggested that I sing it as a duet with my son Steve which is particularly poignant.” Paul Rodgers

Much love to Paul and Simon, and love to all our fans for supporting us over the years Thanks.” Read more →
