He has more recently toured and recorded with Queen. Rodgers has been dubbed “The Voice” by his fans. A poll in Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 55 on its list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time”. In 2011 Rodgers received the British Academy’s Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
