Queen have just posted Episode 45 of their 50-part YouTube series, ‘The Greatest,’ as they continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
The latest episode looks back at reviving the band with Paul Rodgers on vocals when Brian May played with him in 2004 at a 50th anniversary show for the Fender Stratocaster in London.
Brian said, "We didn't want to go out there and be Queen again without Freddie [Mercury]. And it happened almost by accident at an awards show. I played with Paul Rodgers, who was a hero of ours. and I remember coming off stage and Paul's lady said, ‘Oh, you guys seem to really have a great chemistry. All you need is a drummer.’ And I went, ‘well, I think I know a drummer.’”
Queen announced a planned collaboration with Rodgers in October 2004, then, they appeared together when the band was inducted into the U.K. Hall of Fame on November 22nd of that year, performing "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions" along with "All Right Now," which Rodgers wrote while in Free. Check it all out on YouTube.
