  2. Saw them in May of 1976 at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis. Great concert; they were awesome live back then. All these de ades later (2016 here) still great with Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke, who, incidentally, were together in Free before Bad Co. Bad Co. was on Led Zep’s Swan Song label. Believe Paul has made some sort of deal with the devil in order to maintain his voice and touthful vitality at his age. A shame about Mick Ralph’s health, and Boz Burrell’s self-destruction.

  3. Yeh this is the mother fuckin shit

    Stay with the program and that means coc rock and more coc rock when I was younger I used ta dream of suckin on Paul Rodgers dic. I never did but sometimes I got lucky hangin round in the rest rooms at the bus station ‘usually army guys, I would get them talkin bout baseball or football first. Happy days

  4. Derrick I don’t know if that’s you or not I like to think it’s not you but it sure sounds like you. It doesn’t bother me if your queer and I don’t think Anti cares unless your a Jew.

  5. I take my lead in all things from Tom Petty, I’m building a little shrine to him in my garage. Tom wasn’t gay so I’m not either.

  6. I didn’t think Derrick was queer but if he is so what,
    he bores on and on about sports and thats worse. He has been kinda gay lately on here though: perhaps he ’s coming out

    He can chew on my Italian meat if he wants it would stop him going on about Cactus and that shit.

  7. no offence Derrick

  8. Anti that wasn’t me and I’m sure that wasn’t you either. Fuckin queers and jew bastards. Probably that Mark dic sucker or that Tony asshole

  9. You can sign any name here so nuthin you can do I guess

  10. Does anyone comment on music anymore?

    By George on Oct 20, 2019

  11. Just one big penis fest or bigotry run amok. Broken record.

    By George on Oct 20, 2019

  12. Rumor has it this is a band of Big Uns

    By U L E on Oct 20, 2019

  13. Ok George, just a thought - this isn’t Bad Company any more than “Mott 74″ was Mott The Hoople - that was Ian Hunter’s band with Luther Grosvenor and this is line any of Paul Rodgers’ recent bands with Simon Kirke. If this band played All Right Now and Wishing Well,would it be Free?

    I don’t think it would but I’m just going to enjoy this for what it is - thank you, BigO.
