Throughout the month of February, 102.9 WMGK will count down the 20 greatest classic rock singers decided by our listener vote. 

We’ll dedicate daily blocks to one singer who’s made the list every weekday throughout the month.

MGK will celebrate Paul Rodgers on Friday, Feb. 17. 

Rodgers has made his way around as the lead vocalist for multiple legendary rock & roll bands. He joined Free in 1968, where his his fist major hit “All Right Now” shot up the charts.

Rodgers did his most memorable work with Bad Company through the 1970s. They released memorable hits like “Feel Like Makin’ Love,” “Shooting Star,” and the title track “Bad Company” of their self-titled debut album Bad Company.

He later had tenures with the Law and the Firm in addition to his solo performances. He even joined up with Queen as a featured singer from 2004-2009.

His career has earned him the #8 spot on the list in 2023.
