Bad Company Debut- Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke

To this day I clearly remember the day that the British band Bad Company released that much-touted debut in May 1974, precisely because of the pedigrees of the still young but by now veteran rockers Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke ex-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. –Redbeard
