Live in Concert: Bad Company
Find out why Bad Company, one of rock's first supergroups, was also one of the best this week on Live in Concert.
Out of the ashes of the band Free, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke teamed up with former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and bassist Boz Burrell to form the band Bad Company. Their first three albums, Bad Company (1974), Straight Shooter (1975), and Run with the Pack (1976) helped them sell 20 million records in the U.S. and more than 40 million albums worldwide. This week on Live in Concert, hear a show recorded live at Wembley Arena in London in 1979 as the band tears through hits like "Rock & Roll Fantasy," "Shooting Star," "Can't Get Enough," Fell Like Makin' Love" and more.
Stevie Ray Vauhgan is also on the bill with a set form the legendary Newport Jazz Fest in 1985 that includes "Cold Shot" and "Pride and Joy." The bicentennial was a great year for Lynyrd Skynyrd. Saturday night you will hear the original lineup do their signature song and a couple more from the iconic Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. Deep Purple rounds out the lineup this week on Live in Concert.
It doesn't look like live in-person concerts will be booked anytime soon, so turn up your radio and enjoy these classic performances. Saturday nights rock with Live in Concert, every week at 8 pm, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
