A Look Back at Bad Company

In 1973, the English “supergroup” Bad Company was formed. The Burning Sky Tribute Band presents this look back at Bad Company’s musical influences and the origins of the original 4 band members.

Bad Company was the first band signed to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song record label.

The band had to fight the management of Swan Song to use the name Bad Company. They succeeded in keeping the name with the help of their manager Peter Grant, who was also Led Zeppelin’s manager. Believe it or not, Swan Song management wanted to call Bad Company the Heavy Metal Kids. Wow – glad they won that battle!

BAD COMPANY made their formal debut in England, at Newcastle City Hall in March of 1974.

In the United States, Bad Company’s popularity quickly soared. While some fans had recognized Paul Rodgers’ great voice from “All Right Now”, the group’s energetic stage shows wowed audiences largely unfamiliar with the work of Free or Mott The Hoople.

We hope you enjoy this video look back.

THE BURNING SKY BAND also hopes to see YOU soon at one of our upcoming shows to hear Bad Company’s great music done the right way!

As the title of one of their anthem songs says, let’s – LIVE FOR THE MUSIC!
