Bad Company's Simon Kirke Announces New Solo Album

Simon Kirke

(Classic Rock) Bad Company's Simon Kirke will release his new solo album All Because Of You in North America on February 10, 2017. The drummer takes on vocal, guitar, keyboard, drums and ukulele duties in the upcoming release, and is backed up by Chicago session band Empty Pockets.

The album also includes a ukulele version of Bad Company's 1975 song Feel Like Making Love, with Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule guitarist Warren Haynes guesting on track Trouble Road.

Kirke says of the Feel Like Making Love ukulele cover: "I was noodling on my ukulele playing Feel Like Making Love just for fun and my fiancee Maria said, 'You should do that on stage.'

"I told her it was an iconic song of Bad Company's, and she said, 'So? Do your own version. It's fun.' I played it to the Empty Pockets and they loved it. So here it is." Read more here.
