Bad Company In The Studio For 45th Debut Anniversary
The 45th anniversary of Bad Company's 1974 self-titled debut album is celebrated in the latest episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.
Redbeard had this to say, "To this day I clearly remember the anticipation leading up to the day that the British band Bad Company released that much-touted debut in May 1974, precisely because of the pedigrees of the young but, by then, veteran rockers Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke ex- of Free, Mick Ralphs from Mott The Hoople, and Boz Burrell from a stint with King Crimson.
"Eventually Bad Company would occupy the #1 sales slot in the US, making Bad Company one of the most successful debuts in rock history because of "'Can't Get Enough', 'Rock Steady', 'Movin' On', 'Ready for Love', 'Seagull', and the title song.
"Here is the real story from Rodgers, Kirke, and Ralphs. But what's the story on Bad Company's twenty year ban from the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame???" Stream the episode here.
