The disc opens with Free's I'll Be Creepin and first comes the drummer, then bass, then each of the two guitarists enter and join in. First, Heart's Howard Leese and then 17 year old Kurtis Denglar. Denglar's sound blew me away. Then Rodgers enters the stages and with the first line of, "if you're trying to screw me baby..." you know it's going to be an unbelievable show.
Rodgers is flawless and I hope I look as fit as he does when I'm nearing 60 years old (I don't look that good now). The band is excellent, especially Leese and Denglar's solos. I only wish they included my favorite Bad Company song Rock Steady and let Denglar play the opening riffs.
Paul Rodgers is the best voice in rock today. Of all the 1960s and 1970s singers, his voice has been preserved the most. It's almost magical how great he sounds in concert these days.
This DVD is amazing. I am the biggest Free fan on earth, and in theory, it's hard for me to watch other musicians play Free's music, but Rodgers' solo band does a respectful, inspired job. The always dependable Howard Leese (from Heart; now with Rodgers since the early or mid-1990s) fires off great, tasteful solos without ever aping or making fun of the late great Paul Kossoff. Rodgers' solo bassist here, a classically trained violinist, does great fretwork on the five-string bass (he has hovercraft feet though - the boy can't stand still. ha.) Collective Soul's drummer is the one behind the kit here, and despite a week's worth of practice (and jetlag), he is great. Fans of Free, Bad Company, The Firm and all of Rodgers' solo efforts should pick this DVD up. The sound is fantastic - levels...
What's not to like? Pure Rock! Live American rock is great, but one can't ignore that peculiar, not-miss-a-beat sound that British musicians master so perfectly on stage as well. Get it! You won't regret it. It's worth every penny. This will surely be a collectors item soon. Mr. Rodgers shines, and glows with those magnificent vocal treasures he possess. Excellent musicianship by all members in the band as well; including the kid. The sound mix is perfect too. You don't need to raise the volume or adjust anything in your surround system. It's so well balanced that it allows you to appreciate perfectly every note and every instrument played. Watching the close ups on the dual Les Paul attacks sent shivers down my spine. This is the pure, unique Les Paul sound at its finest. Packed with pure Rock from beggining to end this is surely the best rock DVD this year.
