The hard rock band Bad Company was formed in 1973, in England. The lineup changed several times. The current one includes Simon Kirke, Mick Ralphs, Paul Rodgers, Howard Leese, and Todd Ronning. The group is mostly famous for such songs as “Can’t Get Enough”, “Feel Like Makin’ Love”, and “This Love”.
In 1973, Bad Company could have easily been called a supergroup since most of the members came from other successful projects. Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke came from Free, while Mick Ralphs worked with Mott The Hopple. The drummer Boz Burrell performed with King Crimson. Their manager Peter Grant used to manage Led Zeppelin. The label that Bad Company signed their first deal with used to work with Led Zepplin as well.
In 1974, Bad Company released their first studio album Bad Company. The LP was a big success, topping Billboard 200 and reaching the 3rd spot on UK Albums Chart. The band easily received a platinum certification. The singles from that album Can’t Get Enough” and “Movin On” were big hits.
In 1975, the band released their next album Straight Shooter, which was just as successful as their first work. The next album Run With the Pack (1976) was certified platinum in the USA three times and reached high spots on a variety of European charts. The most famous songs from these two albums were “Feel Like Makin’ Love”, “Good Lovin Gone Bad”, “Young Blood”, and “Honey Child”.
