Paul Rodgers has recalled the time a man busking one of his songs on an acoustic guitar failed to recognise him.

The former Free and Bad Company vocalist was out for a stroll when he saw a man on a bench with an acoustic guitar playing his classic hit Feel Like Makin' Love.

Rodgers starting a singing a few lines of the track and ended up impressing the busker with his vocal abilities.

He said he found this particularly funny as the acoustic guitar player did not recognise him as the man who sang on the original record.

"The guy said 'wow, you're pretty good at singing that song'," Rodgers recalled.

"He didn't really turn around and look at me so he had no idea who I was."

Rodgers made his name in the late-1960s and early 1970s with Free, notching up hits such as All Right Now and Wishing Well.

After splitting from Bad Company, he worked with Led Zeppelin's electric guitar player Jimmy Page in The Firm and recently collaborated with Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen.
