BAD COMPANY, Hard Rock Cafe, London
The walls of
the Hard Rock Cafe are adorned with memorabilia of rock stars with such
high profiles as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Who, Jim Morrison
and many more, and today we were to be honoured with the presence of Bad
Company featuring original members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon
Kirke, who are here to do a short acoustic set and to announce to the
waiting press an arena tour that will take place next April.
on stage by Nicky Horne, a journalist who was the first to interview them
when the eponymous debut came out in 1974. It was the first time
that these three members were to perform together on a stage here in the
UK in over three decades.
It was great
to see them at such close proximity, and the band looked happy as they
strummed into first number, the big hit 'Feel Like Makin' Love'.
After that Paul Rodgers looked at Ralphs and said ''What shall we do next?''
before deciding on 'Shooting Star' another track from the second LP
'Straight Shooter' which required some audience participation towards the
Ralphs/Rodgers composition of 'Seagull' from the debut LP, all three
members came to the front to answer a few questions from those lucky
enough to be in attendance.
From this we
found out that the touring band will be joined by Lynn Sorensen on bass
,who is also currently in Rodgers solo band and ex-Heart member Howard
Leese will be helping out on rhythm guitar.
will be also performing some tracks that don't often get an airing and if
the tour is successful ,there is a possibilty of some new material to come
in the future.
announced for support is none other than Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry who
will be bringing along his new project.
then decided to do another song for the throng with 'Do Right By Your Woman'.
An enjoyable afternoon in the heart of Mayfair spent with some good
