Bad Company to reunite – for one night only!

Legendary rock band Bad Company are set to reform – but only for one night to help protect their rights to the band’s name.


Apparently, lead singer Paul Rodgers heard that another band was about to go out on tour across the USA using the Bad Company name. Re-activating the original band for the gig will help to legally protect their trademark.


Original band members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke plan to reunite and perform together for the first time since 1999 with a one-off show on August 8, 2008. The band’s original bass player Boz Burrell died in 2006.


The bad news for UK fans though is that the unique gig will be at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida. But fans will still have a chance to experience the event. The show will be filmed for a live DVD release later this year.


Bad Company’s hits such as ‘Can’t Get Enough’, ‘Feel Like Makin’ Love’, ‘Rock Steady’, ‘Movin’ On’,  ‘Shooting Star’, ‘Rock & Roll Fantasy’ and ‘Bad Company’ propelled them to the forefront of the arena rock movement in the 1970s.


The band was originally formed in 1974 after former Free vocalist Paul Rodgers teamed up with ex-Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, former Free drummer Simon Kirke, and ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell.


The band toured for months before signing to Song Records (owned by Led Zeppelin and distributed by Atlantic Records) and releasing their highly anticipated debut album, titled Bad Co.


Propelled by the hit single ‘Can’t Get Enough’, the album quickly hit Number One on the charts and remained in the Top 40 for four straight months. To this day, the multi-platinum Bad Co. album remains one of the most accomplished debuts in rock history … almost a greatest hits package in its own right.


The albums Straight Shooter, Run with the Pack, Burnin’ Sky and Desolation Angels followed before the end of the decade, receiving more multi-platinum awards with hits like ‘Feel Like Makin’ Love’, ‘Seagull’, ‘Run with the Pack’, ‘Burnin’ Sky’, and ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy’.


In 1982, the band released their final recording Rough Diamonds, and the single ‘Electricland’ would be their last release before disbanding. The group’s multi-platinum award-winning Greatest Hits compilation, 10 from 6, has since become a record collection staple.
