No, they didn't turn green.

"Radioactive (Special Mix)" - The Firm

Paul Rodgers: Former singer for the bands Free and Bad Company. Jimmy Page: guitar legend from Led Zeppelin and The Yardbirds. Two titans joined to form The Firm along with Chris Slade, formerly of Uriah Heap and Manfred Mann's Earth Band, on drums. Their efforts were met with little commercial thanks but they did sellout the tours that followed the 1985 album - despite their refusal to play any of the material done by their former bands. After the release of a second LP, "Mean Business", The Firm was done. Chris Slade went onto join AC/DC and he stayed there until 1994. After that he was in Asia and played with them for 6 years and continues to record today on many different projects. Jimmy Page has reunited with Zep's Robert Plant several times and recorded with Whitesnake's David Coverdale and The Black Crowes to name a few. Rodgers formed short-lived band The Law, rejoined Bad Company on tour in 2001 and went on the road with the surviving members of Queen as Queen + Paul Rodgers. The "+" meant to stress the fact that he was not replacing the late Freddie Mercury. They reportedly have a new CD due this year. "Radioactive" peaked at #28 in the US and this mix lasts 5:50.

Sharebee is acting up today. I'll try again later. For now just these:
