PAUL RODGERS & BAD COMPANY

BAD COMPANY TO REUNITE - ONE NIGHT ONLY!

 

Tickets on Sale Saturday, July 5 at 1 p.m.

 

 

BAD COMPANY TO REUNITE - ONE NIGHT ONLY!

 

ORIGINAL MEMBERS PAUL RODGERS, SIMON KIRKE AND MICK RALPHS TO PERFORM FIRST SHOW TOGETHER IN A DECADE AT THE

HARD ROCK LIVE IN HOLLYWOOD, FL AUGUST 8th!

 

Los Angeles, CA – July 2, 2008 – Bad Company original members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke will reunite for the first time in nearly a decade. Following a huge demand from fans, Bad Company will perform one show only at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Friday, August 8th. Tickets will go on sale Saturday, July 5th.

 

Bad Company’s hits such as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Feel Like Makin Love,” “Rock Steady,” “Movin’ On,” “Shooting Star,” “Rock & Roll Fantasy” and “Bad Company” (the first to self title their band name in a song and album) propelled them to the forefront of the 70s arena rock movement. Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke will reunite to perform together for the first time since 1999 (founding member Boz Burrell passed away in 2006). Rodgers, celebrating his 40th year as a recording artist, recently performed at London’s Hyde Park with Queen as part of the “The 46664 Concert – Honoring Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday” and will be embarking on a world concert tour in support of their new studio album September. His most recent solo CD/DVD release, Live in Glasgow, charted internationally at #1 and #3 and is certified Gold.

 

After the break up of FREE (best known internationally for their smash hit “All Right Now” co-written by Rodgers) vocalist and multi-instrumentalist vocalist Paul Rodgers connected with ex-Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, FREE drummer Simon Kirke would later join that year and the trio began rehearsing. Ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell came aboard a few months later and the supergroup Bad Company was solidified.  Before releasing their first album, the band had toured for months and in 1974 signed to Song Records (owned by Led Zeppelin and distributed via Atlantic Records) to release their highly anticipated debut album, titled Bad Co. Propelled by the hit single “Can’t Get Enough,” the album would quickly hit #1 on the charts and remain in the Top 40 for four straight months. To this day, the multi-platinum Bad Co. album arguably remains one of the most accomplished debuts in rock history, reading as a virtual greatest hits set in itself.

 

Straight Shooter, Run with the Pack, Burnin’ Sky and Desolation Angels would all follow within a five year run throughout the 70s yielding more multi-platinum awards with hit after hit, “Feel Like Makin’ Love,” “Seagull,” “Run with the Pack,” “Burnin’ Sky,” “Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy,” making Bad Company one of the biggest concert attractions of the decade. In 1982, the band released their final recording Rough Diamonds and the single “Electricland” would be their last before disbanding. The group’s multi-platinum award-winning greatest hits set 10 from 6 has become a record collection staple.

Rocker Mel Galley
Loses Cancer Battle

The former Whitesnake rocker was 59.
Thursday, July 3, 2008

Former Whitesnake star Mel Galley has lost his battle with cancer.

The 59-year-old guitarist revealed he was seriously ill in February 2008, telling fans he didn't have long to live.

In a candid post on his MySpace.com page, he wrote, "I've had a fantastic life. I have been very lucky. I have seen some great bands, and played with many great musicians.

"I have enjoyed some tremendous experiences. I am thankful that I can say a proper goodbye to all the friends I have made, who are now rallying round me."

The star, who also performed with classic rock acts Trapeze and Phenomena, revealed his final weeks were full of fun of fun and laughter.

In a recent post, he wrote, "Friends visit me each day, I have drugs in me 24/7, and I have a plentiful supply of gin and tonic by my bedside. I even have my own ice machine! In fact, it's just like my Whitesnake days."

Born in Staffordshire, England, Galley was forced to quit Whitesnake after injuring his arm in a fairground accident in Germany.

He suffered nerve damage and pioneered a spring and wire device, known as The Claw, that was fitted to his hand to enable him to play the guitar.

During Whitesnake's recent European tour, frontman David Coverdale dedicated "Love Ain't No Stranger" to his sick pal. Galley wrote the song with the singer.

Trapeze frontman Glenn Hughes has paid tribute to his childhood friend, stating, "I'll see you in the Garden one day, and truly recognize you as my brother."

The concert name refers to Nelson Mandela’s prison number (46664 - pronounced four, double six, six, four) when he spent 18 years of his 27 years in prison on Robben Island off the coast of Cape Town in South Africa. 

Oprah Winfrey, former President Bill Clinton, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Robert De Niro, Forest Whitaker are among those who will attend some of the events surrounding the three-day celebration in London which culminates in the evening concert.  

South African and African artists Johnny Clegg, Sipho Mabuse, Loyiso, the Soweto Gospel Choir, Papa Wemba, Sudanese ‘war child’ rapper Emmanuel Jal, and AIDS orphan choir: The Children of Agape will also join in the celebration.

The concert proceeds will benefit Nelson Mandela’s HIV/AIDS charity 46664 that he founded in 2002.  “I am supposed to be retired but my friends and the charitable organizations that bear my name want to use my 90th birthday year to raise funds to continue our work and so of course I want to help them,” said Nelson Mandela.

“Nelson Mandela epitomizes strength and courage around the world.   He has come to symbolize hope, working tirelessly through his 46664 organization to raise awareness about the impact of AIDS, especially in Africa, and promote HIV prevention measures globally,” said Tom Calderone, VH1’s Executive Vice President, General Manager.  “We at VH1 have a long history of proactively engaging our viewers in the fight against HIV/AIDS.  We are proud to be a part of this momentous occasion and are eager to share the celebration with music fans across the U.S.”

 Deborah Bonham

Date: Fri 4 Jul 2008, 8:00pm
Price: £12.50
Venue: Jim Marshall Auditorium
 

 
How much talent can you get in just one gene pool? Looking at the Bonham family tree, loads. Tonight Deborah Bonham - sister of John, aunt of Jason - joins us for the first time. Music is in her blood, and her vocal style draws comparisons with Janis Joplin and Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks. However, Deborah cites Stone The Crows' Maggie Bell as her key influence and there the similarity is greatest, in a performance that runs the gamut from blues to soul to hard rock to English folk, and all the way back again.

Also on the night, Jim our chef will be barbequing on the veranda – not hidden away in the kitchen where he usually is! Pick up a burger and a beer for just £5 before the show, a perfect after work wind down to set you up for the weekend.
You’d be hard pressed to find a full nights entertainment for less than £20 anywhere else in the city!

Through his efforts, Rodgers has helped raise over $200,000 for the program. The Proclamation was given by member of Congress Ken Calvet and presented to Rodgers, only the 8th person to receive such an honor, by Fender Center board member Jeff Bennett, Saturday, June 14th before a sold-out benefit concert in Corona to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the center. "Music is the great connector,” said Rodgers. “It connects us to our emotions and to each other. Thanks to the U.S. Congress for recognizing the value of music."

Currently, Rodgers is in the UK with Queen readying to perform at the celebration of Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday at London’s Hyde Park on June 27. Rodgers first met Mandela, performing at a South African 46664 concert in 2005 and is proud to continue to support the man and his organization, raising awareness about the impact of AIDS and promotes HIV prevention. "When you consider all of the indignities and injustices that have challenged Nelson Mandela, it's a miracle and a real testament to his fortitude and courage that he can still shine the light of peace. It's typical of the man's humility that on his birthday he should make this huge effort on behalf of other people. This will be one of the highlights of my life."

THE LAW-The Deluxe Edition

Friday Music FRM-1062

Release Date June 24, 2008

 

In 1991, two of rock music’s royalty highest ranking legends Paul Rodgers and Kenney Jones decided to join forces and create the powerful unit known as The Law. Although the union was short lived, the shelf life of the project has endured for years, equally with the amazing chapter in each of the two musician’s career paths.

Paul Rodgers’ journey began with Free in the late sixties, which netted him some incredible copyrights like “All Right Now,” “Wishing Well” and “Fire and Water.” After the untimely demise of their gifted guitarist Paul Kossoff, both Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke teamed up with Mick Ralphs (Mott The Hoople) and the late Boz Burrell (King Crimson) and formulated the super group Bad Company. Aside from world tours and multi-platinum platters throughout the seventies like Bad Company, Straight Shooter and Running With The Pack, Paul left the band in good hands with a major hit “Rock And Roll Fantasy” at the turn of the decade, and then proceeded to craft his own solo path with his first successful solo album Cut Loose (Friday Music 1061) in 1983. Two years later, his good friend of the highest order Jimmy Page teamed up with Rogers and formed the powerful unit The Firm. The band recorded two highly successful albums The Firm and Mean Business.

Kenney Jones was a founding member of England’s The Small Faces. Along with the late Stevie Marriot, the late Ronnie Lane, and Ian McLagan , they formed an R & B/Psychedelic meets Northern Soul alternative to The Beatles and were blessed with many hit singles and albums to their credit. One of their most important achievements during the turbulent sixties was their Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake album, with the amazing single “Afterglow.” Upon Steve leaving to form Humble Pie, Rod Stewart joined up along with Ronnie Wood and the new Faces were born. A few years later, after the tragic death of Keith Moon, and after a time of mourning, The Who enlisted good friend and superstar drummer Kenney Jones for several successful albums like Face Dances, It’s Hard and Who’s Last.

Now, hold your breath, this combination of historical talent only takes us to 1991! The musical roots that each member of The Law brought to the recording studio table, would have made anyone at Atlantic Records proud, including the band’s biggest fan and supporter Ahmet Ertegun, who signed the band soon after the two fellows had a chance meeting.

In a recent discussion with Rodgers, he explained to me that the two musicians met up at a pub in England, each of them were interested in starting a new band together, and there was a sign posted in the bar about underage drinking or something like that, which had the phrase, “It’s the law” …and that is how the name THE LAW began the partnership which would garner them a hit album in the months to follow.

The recording sessions took place at several key studios in London with Chris Kimsey at the helm as producer. Amongst the incredible partnership of talent, some of the guest musicians and writers were just the right element that gave this album the soul and depth it deserved. David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Chris Rea, Bryan Adams, Jon Astley, Pino Palladino…..one after another, all lent their artistic contributions to the project.

Working as a national promotion manager for the Atlantic Records Corporation during the release of this album, the team was able to get The Law their sole #1 at AOR radio with the Rodgers penned “Laying Down The Law.” It was an exciting time as the album and the follow up singles achieved solid airplay for the better part of the year.

Unfortunately, it was a very short-lived entity. Playing the album several years later, and during the remastering process, I didn’t think anything but how strong the album really was. >From the kick off track “For A Little Ride” to the Four Tops sounding rock and roll balladry of “Come Save Me ( Julianne)” to the arena rocking “Stone Cold”, this album is chock full of great songs.

In addition to the already finely crafted venture, we have located a very strong unreleased track “That’s When You Fall In Love” from the Atlantic vaults that just makes this album that much more enduring.

Another Rodgers penned track, this rare gem truly shows where the band was headed musically and creatively. What a moment in time this was.

Today, both Paul Rodgers and Kenney Jones are continuing their musical paths in various successful directions: Paul enjoys a solid solo career as well as being the lead vocalist with Queen + Paul Rodgers. Kenny joined forces with Rick Wills (The Small Faces/Foreigner) as The Jones Gang, releasing a new album in 2007.

I personally would like to thank the guys for the years of great music, and it is a rocking validation for us here at Friday Music that we can make this fine album available once again for their legions of fans worldwide. The Law-The Deluxe Edition is a badge worth wearing.
