Lynn Sorensen has been the bassist for Bad Company. After a 10-year hiatus, the three surviving original members, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke reunited along with Lynn on bass and Howard Leese on guitar, performed at Miami’s Hardrock Arena on 08/08/08. Lynn toured with Bad Company in 2009 and 2010 with dates in the US, UK, Canada and Japan. On July 28, 2011, a DVD of Bad Company’s Wembley Arena performance with Lynn on bass went on sale worldwide.
From June 2000 to April 2011, Lynn has been the bassist, back-up vocalist for the Paul Rodgers solo band. From the Barrowlands in Scotland; to Royal Albert Hall in London; to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta; to BB Kings in New York; to the Ryman in Nashville, and the Sydney Superdome, Lynn has toured Europe, Japan, Australia and North America with Paul. As Lynn puts it, “You have the world’s premier rock vocalist touching the hearts of millions, and I’m a part of it! He just gets better with age. He has inspired me to realize that no matter how long you do this or how accomplished you are at your craft, you sould always challenge yourself. It makes no difference how many gigs and sessions I do with Paul, it is always a deep musical pleasure to hear that man sing!” Summer 2006, Lynn toured Japan with Paul (with Nils Lofgren and Howard Leese on guitars) and the UK in October 2006. A full DVD of the Glasgow Scotland Show entitled, Paul Rodgers Live at Glasgow, charted #1 in the UK and Canada and #3 in the US.
