Paul Rodgers, frontman of his former band Bad Company, toured with the legendary rock group Queen between 2005-2009. After that, he as well as the band Queen got busy with their own projects, but the singer hasn't ruled out the idea of touring with the band again.

"We may do. We left it because we all wanted to do different things. We toured the world twice and after the studio album I didn't feel like there was a lot more we could do. We didn't want to do it forever, but I enjoyed playing the role for a while, so we'll see,"  BANG Showbiz quoted the singer as saying.

The singer also mentioned in the Ivor Novello Songwriting Awards, that it had been a great honour for him to be in Freddy Mercury's( the original singer of Queen) shoes. He also pointed out that he had a lot of respect for Mercury because he was an exceptionally good singer-songwriter. “I had to fill a role as well as be myself, and it was quite daunting, at first we were just jamming and having fun, but when they put the full rig up and I was stood in the middle, all of a sudden I realized the enormity of what I'd got myself into".

"I grew to love Freddie. I always had a great deal of admiration for queen and Freddie, but the more I studied him and his life and his death too, there was no poor me about it, he was just very, very brave," the singer added.
