  • Paul Rodgers recalls coming up with material to record for the Burnin' Sky LP: “I was making up songs on the spot, particularly, I remember with “Burnin’ Sky” being in the hotel the night before, because I would go into Paris for the weekend,” he recalls. “I had the chorus and I thought, “Wow, do some rhythm chords, like some verse chords. I took that into the studio and I had no verses for it. I didn’t know what the song was about, and I played the guys the song and  they picked up on it, like, “Great, I love the chorus!” I’m going, “Yeah, you might like the chorus, but I haven’t got any verses yet.” But I didn’t say that, and they pushed the red button and I just went, “Waiting for the van to arrive.” I just made this whole story up on the spot and we recorded it.”
