Paul Rodgers - Seminole Hard Rock Live Hollywood - January 16

Better Than: Staying home and watching Palladia.

In our experience, artists who file with the prefix "classic" before their genre face the inevitable loss of some of "the magic" with age.

However, Paul Rodgers' performance last night at Hollywood's Seminole Hard Rock Live showed that he's a man who deems himself above the generally unbending laws of both nature and rock 'n' roll. Rodgers gave fans nearly two hours' worth of vocal chops and swagger that appeared to have suffered little over the passage of the 43 years since Free's "All Right Now" hit the airwaves in 1970.
