#RMF2019: Bad Company



Day 25 of #RocktoberMusicFest2019


Wikipedia tells us this about Bad Company:
Bad Company are an English hard rock supergroup formed in Westminster, London, in 1973 by singer Paul Rodgers and guitarist Mick Ralphs later adding drummer Simon Kirke and bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed the rock band Led Zeppelin, also managed Bad Company until 1982.


Here are 10 of their songs:

  1. Bad Company
  2. Feel Like Making Love
  3. Rock n Roll Fantasy
  4. Moving On
  5. Shooting Star
  6. Ready For Love
  7. Silver, Blue and Gold
  8. Can’t Get Enough
  9. Rock Steady
  10. Good Lovin’ Gone Bad

  2. The Box Tops, “Neon Rainbow”

    Ditto what songbird said: they were good enough, just not a band I'd spend money on buying their albums.

    1. I enjoyed their music when they had air play. I think I have their Bad Company album on cassette, but it doesn't get much play anymore. Probably because it's on cassette. LOL

  3. Thanks for the playlist, Mary. I do enjoy Bad Company's music, but don't own any of their albums. I guess they weren't on my radar back then. Classic Rock radio gives them plenty of airtime though.

    1. Hi Debbie!

      I think it was through a Classic Rock station that I started listening to their music more frequently as well.

    1. Loverboy! That sounds like it would be a great one. I'll be by in just a quick moment to check it out.

  5. FUN FACT: Lynyrd Skynyrd's singer, Ronnie Van Zant, was a huge fan of Bad Company's singer, Paul Rodgers, and modeled his singing style after Rodgers. And as soon as one becomes cognizant of that fact, it seems so obvious that one is embarrassed not to have realized it on their own.

    Rodgers was the singer for the band FREE, prior to forming Bad Company, and Free (who had a great hit song titled 'All Right Now') also included the great guitarist Paul Kossoff.

    I loved Kossoff's playing. He later formed Back Street Crawler, which became simply Crawler after Kossoff died. And then Crawler had a minor hit with a song that I STILL think is an all-time, underrated monster of a Rock song:

    'STONE COLD SOBER' (by Crawler)

    It's funny how so many major hit Rock songs from my teen years no longer thrill me, but this minor One-Hit-Wonder still sounds so bad-ass to me all these years later. 'Stone Cold Sober' would be on my short list of 'Most Underrated Minor Hit Songs From The Classic Rock Era'. Damn! This song STILL kicks ass 42 years later!!

      You are just a wealth of information! I hadn't heard of Crawler before, but I rather like that video you shared. Thanks for that introduction. I see you have another Rocktoberfest post. I'll come check it out here in just a minute or two (barring any distractions).
