 Bad Company - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bad Company were an English hard rock supergroup founded in 1973, consisting of band members from Free (Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke), Mott The Hoople (Mick Ralphs) and King Crimson (Boz Burrell).

Bad Company toured with Paul Rodgers for only 30-date in the U.S. that drew sellout crowds in support of the Anthology release.

 Free and Bad Company
Free originated during the British blues boom of 1968, populating the same London blues club scene that gave rise to acts like Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, and Procol Harum, and was dominated by Alex Korner and John Mayall, both of whom had employed various members of the band before its assembly.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Bad Company was a massive commercial success on both sides of the Atlantic from the start.
At the start, Bad Company seemed like the Mick Ralphs show: he wrote their huge hit single "Can't Get Enough," their modestly successful follow-up "Movin' On," and their re-recording of Mott the Hoople's "Ready For Love," and is co-credited on two of Rodgers' five numbers.

 Bad Company
On its first album, Bad Company -- led by former Free singer Paul Rodgers and original Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs -- resembles Free in its structural starkness and early Mott in its stormy directness.
Rodgers's voice is Bad Company's virtuoso instrument; he's one of the most impressive rock singers of the decade.
This is an uncompromising album, reflecting the wills as much as the talents of the participants, and it's all the more impressive in light of the fact that it was recorded immediately after the group's formation.

But their music still sounds remarkably current today, and is as solid a staple of album rock radio now as it was 20 years ago.
The Bad Company formula is a simple yet winning one, composed in equal parts of Ralphs' big-shouldered power chording, Rodgers' soul-inflected vocals and the thudding rhythms generated by Kirke's drumming and Burrell's bass work.
Bad Company came up in the era of prog rock and glam.

 Bad Company Biography
Bad Company followed up their initial success with the 1975 release of the triple-platinum album Straight Shooter which contained the Top Ten smash ballad "Feel Like Makin' Love" which also won a Grammy Award.
With three albums now to their credit, the central ingredient to the group's remarkable success was their steady stream of first rate original material.
Another of the album's highlights was the rollicking "Oh Atlanta." "That was Bad Company meets Little Feat," laughs Kirke.

Bad Company's albums were often rather uneven, but this their 1974 debut album is strong almost all the way through, and the group's best offering, alongside "Straight Shooter".
The only "problem" is that the best songs on this album are all on their excellent compilation "10 From 6", but "Bad Company" is still an excellent record and a fine place to start if you're new to the band.
This, their first album, is a powerful affirmation of the pre-eminence in the rock world of the totally brilliant vocals of Paul Rodgers and the album blends the moody, hypnotic riffs of the "Free" era with a new, sharp Rock n' Roll feel driven by some very serious percussion and bass.

Despite being one of the most popular bands in the world, itwas clear that Bad Company were always going to be comparedunfavourably with Free, and they failed to develop musicallyafter their first LP.
As the 70s progressed, their albums becameless inspired and, although 1979's Desolation Angelscould still reach the charts (and include a fine ballad like"She Brings Me Love" and the American hit single,"Rock'n'Roll Fantasy"), they seemed to be a band out oftime and ideas, and finally threw in the towel after 1982's RoughDiamonds.

With the exception of the songs "Can't Get Enough", "Movin' On",and "Bad Company", the music here feels as if they just wanted to "play it safe" so to speak, as if they were holding back, afraid to do anything with any feeling of originality.
The last song on any album should be one that stays in the listener's head long after he or she is done listening to the album - and this one will do just that.
Overall, Bad Company's debut album is an excellent album, and it has certainly stood the (thirty year) test of time.

All of albums that the band released with the classic Rodgers, Ralphs, Burrell, and Kirke formation were excellent, They had attempted to broaden their horizons many a time, most notably at first on their 1976 release Run With The Pack.

Although the last two albums used a similar styling that was nothing short of excellent, no one can deny that they don't want to hear the same old thing over and over again.
And by the time they released this album, their so-called "trademark" sound was beginning to become stale, in the eyes of many fans.
The formula of high-octane blues-rock, deployed so successfully on the band's two preceding albums, Bad Company (1974) and Straightshooter (1975) is reproduced here with convincing results, although there are signs that the band is weakening in one or two departments.

Ralphs admits that Bad Company strayed off its blues-rock course in 1992 with its last album, "Here Comes Trouble." He said Hart is the final piece that's been missing in the puzzle since the mid-'80s when Rodgers left the group after six million-selling albums.

The string finally ran out for Bad Company with its fourth album.
A band that begins life declaring "I can't get enough of your love" doesn't really have anywhere to go, and by this, its fourth album, Bad Company was getting sloppy around the edges, tossing in a '50s pastiche in "Everything I Need," crooning "The Happy Wanderer" as if they were on a drunken pub crawl.
Of course, the real reason this was the first Bad Company to miss the Top 10 in the U.S. and the U.K. is that last point: no hit single.
