History

The Law was formed when Paul Rodgers met Kenny Jones in a nightclub in London and decided to put a band together. [http://www.vintagerock.com/prodgers_interview.aspx] The two teamed up with different supporting musicians in order to give Paul Rodgers freedom to pursue whatever music style he felt like. [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:fzftxqekldje~T1]
Unlike his previous projects in which wrote or co-wrote most of the material, he relied heavily on outside writers to write songs for the album (Like Phil Collen, Rea, Bryan Adams, etc...) [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:fzftxqekldje~T1] . Ironically, the only chart topper of the album 'Laying Down the Law' was written by Rodgers himself. [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:fzftxqekldje~T1] The album features notable appearances by David Gilmour, Bryan adams and Chris Rea.
Aside from the single, the album was received very poorly by the critics and the public which leaded to disbanding of the band. [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:fzftxqekldje~T1]
