Intro

An English Rock supergroup formed out of Westminster, London during 1973, by two former Free band members - singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, plus Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed Led Zeppelin, also managed Bad Company until 1982.

Bad Company had huge success throughout the '70s. Their first three albums, Bad Company (1974), Straight Shooter (1975) and Run With the Pack (1976), reached the top five in the album charts in both the UK and the USA. Many of their singles, such as "Bad Company", "Can't Get Enough", "Good Lovin' Gone Bad", and "Feel Like Makin' Love", remain staples of classic rock radio stations.
