“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
“Its such an honour to sing along with my father and a great opportunity to show my respect to my ancestors and the life they had to lead”. Steve Rodgers
Music and lyrics for “This Place Called Home” are by Adam Dennis.
The single release date of October 14, 2016 is to coincide with the Bad Company Swan Song UK tour where Paul’s son Steve will be a special guest on four dates.
