Bad Company was formed in Westminster, London in 1973 by two former Free band members, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, as well as Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed Led Zeppelin, also managed Bad Company until 1982. Bad Company enjoyed great success throughout the 1970s. Their first three albums, Bad Company (1974), Straight Shooter (1975) and Run With the Pack (1976), reached the top five in the album charts in both the U.K. and U.S. Many of their singles, such as “Bad Company,” “Can’t Get Enough,” “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad,” and “Feel Like Makin’ Love,” remain staples of classic rock radio today.
