Bad Company is one of the most acclaimed bands of the classic rock era. Hailing from England they left an incredible stamp on rock ‘n’ roll with a straight ahead, no frills musical approach that has resulted in the creation of some of the most timeless rock anthems ever.
The hard rock super-group was formed in Westminster, London, in 1973 by former Free singer Paul Rodgers and Free drummer Simon Kirke along with former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, and ex-King Crimson bassist, Boz Burrell. Peter Grant who managed the rock group Led Zeppelin, also managed Bad Company and they became the first band to be signed to Zeppelin’s Swan Song label.
Bad Company was an instant hit worldwide. Their 1974 self titled debut album went platinum five times over and featured the smash hits, Can’t Get Enough and Movin’ On along with electrifying rock anthems like Ready For Love, Rock Steady and the title track.
In the United States, Bad Company’s popularity soared and the groups energetic stage shows wowed audiences. With a number one album to their credit in America, Bad Company returned to London triumphant with their first gold album for Bad Company, followed by a triple platinum album Straight Shooter (1975) which contained the Top Ten smash ballad and Grammy nominated Feel Like Makin’ Love.
Bad Company has enjoyed great success throughout the decades with sold out arenas and even more top selling albums including Run With The Pack (1976), Burnin’ Sky (1977), Desolation Angels (1979), Rough Diamonds (1982), and more. All reaching the top of the charts in both UK and US.
