Why did people like Bad Company so much anyway? Well, it had to be with the immediacy of simple songs without ego
Free, Bad Company drummer shows his versatility and steps into the spotlight with his soul-baring solo effort, ‘Filling The Void.’
The original, founding members of Bad Company, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke have announced that they will reunite for a series of North American concerts this summer.
1970 was the year U.K. blues-rock sodbusters Free soared to unimaginable heights and then crashed in a fiery heap.
The Who’s Pete Townshend is one of many musical icons who sing the praises of Paul Rodgers.
In 2004, Rodgers was invited to close the first Annual U.K. Music Hall of Fame Awards show with “All Right Now.” Having just played the song on “The Strat Pack” DVD, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster, with Brian May, Rodgers called May to see about performing the song again at the awards show.
Paul Rodgers’ musical resume is a long and impressive one filled. From his days with Free and Bad Company to The Firm, Rodgers seemingly has the magical Top 40 touch.
Free was a learning experience for the young Paul Rodgers. Now in his mid-20s, he was already a veteran in the music business. Rodgers put a band together called Peace and toured the U.K. with Mott The Hoople. He struck up a friendship with Mick Ralphs, and they began writing together. The rest, as they say, is history.
In the mid-1960’s, a teenage lad from the industrial town of Middlesborough, England, headed to London to make music. His band got a gig, and a gig meant money, food and freedom. On the way to the group’s breakthrough concert, however, the unthinkable happened: The van broke down.
Hollywood Records and Queen are launching two-year effort to reissue the entire Queen studio album catalog on vinyl LPs, plus a movie featuring the band will hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2008.
