Rock singer and songwriter, Paul Rodgers, famous for hits like, “All Right Now”, “Feel Like Making Love” and “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” talks about his experience of meditation.
“I meditate daily, and started way back in ’67 when I was 17.”
Middlesbrough-born Paul, who was the lead singer of Free and, later, Bad Company, say’s that he’d discovered meditation in 1967, at the age of 17, when George Harrison – whom he was a fan of – had spoken about Transcendental Meditation.
“I delved into it, and I’ve found I always go back to it – even throughout all the crazy years and the rollercoaster life of rock ‘n’ roll. When I go back to it I find it centres me and calms me down and leaves me knowing where to go next.”
Rodgers, who has played with Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Brian May and many more, says that the youthful energy needed to perform rock comes from meditation, working out at the gym, and a healthy lifestyle.
