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 just prior to Mick suffering that stroke in 2016 which has taken him out of the current line up. We wish him all the best. But what’s the story on Bad Company’s twenty year ban from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame??? –Redbeard
