Singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke formed Bad Company -- after they split from their previous band, Free -- with Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. Their self-titled debut album, released on Led Zeppelin's custom label Swan Song, was an immediate hit, going straight to No. 1. Rodgers left the band in 1982 and was replaced by Brian Howe, who was replaced in 1995 by Robert Hart. There have been many lineup changes along the way, but the core quartet made the band's best-known songs, like "Can't Get Enough" and "Feel Like Makin' Love," both of which hit the Top 10 in the mid-'70s.
