Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company are both celebrating 40 years in 2013, and they've teamed up to take a co-headling tour across America. The 40 Tour will begin on June 20 in Auburn, Wash. and travel east before wrapping up on July 27 in Bethel, N.Y.
Stephen Colbert poked gentle fun at some classic rock bands on Twitter as an extension of a comedy bit on Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report' last night (Feb. 21). Def Leppard, Bad Company and Meat Loaf were among those satirized.
The lineup for the 2013 Rock Meets Classic tour is taking shape. Famed vocalist Paul Rodgers is the latest superstar to join the cast for the upcoming jaunt through Europe, scheduled for February and March 2013.
Video of a mostly topless woman dancing seductively -- for no apparent reason, on the side of the road, in the middle of the day -- to Bad Company's 'Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy' is making the rounds on the video viral circuit and generally making us question humankind's purpose on earth today.
Old rockers don't want to rust, burn out or fade away. They, apparently, just want to keep rocking. We salute them for that, of course. British rock and roll legend Paul Rodgers still hasn't gotten tired of getting in front of an audience, even at the age of 62.
Following the massive success of their self-titled debut record, England's Bad Company certainly had their work cut out for them when the time came around to crafting the dreaded sophomore follow-up. Fortunately for the band, that 1975 record, 'Straight Shooter' featured 'Feel Like Makin' Love,' the song that has landed on our list of Top 100 Classic Rock Songs.
Bad Company's drummer just got a lot more interesting. Jemina Kirke, daughter of Simon Kirke, was named the Babe of the Day by men's site GuySpeed.com. While many Babe of the Day photos involve women wearing near nothing, Kirke is covered from head to toe in two of the three photos.
Paul Rodgers just might be the Magic 8 Ball of rock 'n' roll. In a recent interview, the frontman revealed how his advice to Robert Plant and Joe Walsh might've helped steer them to greatness, and he also came clean about the bands who tried -- and failed -- to recruit him.
Since 2008, the surviving members of the classic Bad Company lineup have occasionally regrouped to play shows in select parts of the world, such as the United States and Japan.
Mainland Europe was not part of Bad Co.'s itineraries — until this year. Starting June 9 in Sweden, singer Paul Rodgers, guitarist Mick Ralphs and drummer Simon Kirke will launch a brief tour of continental Europe, their first one there since 1975 (way back when the band's second album, 'Straight Shooter,' was released).
