BRIAN HOWE R.I.P. 1953 - 2020

Brian Howe, the singer who fronted the British rock supergroup Bad Company for eight years, has died on May 6, 2020. He had a heart attack at his Florida home. He was 66. Howe’s manager Paul Easton said: “It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the untimely passing of a loving father, friend and musical icon.” Bad Company originally formed in 1973 by Free singer Paul Rodgers and Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs. After Rodgers left to form another supergroup with Jimmy Page, the Firm, Bad Company recruited Howe in 1986, and he went on to perform on four subsequent albums.

The band was at a low ebb when Howe joined, having fallen from their peak ’70s popularity with platinum-selling albums such as their self-titled debut, Straight Shooter, and Run With the Pack. But after helping to steer them away from the poppier sound of flop album Fame and Fortune, he returned them to success with 1990’s Holy Water, another platinum-seller in the US. He left Bad Company in 1994, later complaining: “The band was getting very very sloppy live. I quite simply, along with [songwriter-producer-guitarist] Terry Thomas, got tired of doing all the work.” The singer had also worked with Ted Nugent and Megadeth. - theguardian.com

  2. Thanks very much for this. Howe and Terry Thomas ended up doing 90% of the writing and Bad Co were much better for it. Sadly Kirke and Ralphs can’t bring themselves to acknowledge it. And Rodgers never will

  7. He’s absolutely right . These guys all had needle Dics . They all dropped their pants for me backstage after a show in 75 . One look at their puny manhood and I left as fast as I could . What a disappointment.

  8. Fortunately for me Kiss was my next conquest. All horse Dics , especially Gene Simmons. I couldn’t walk without pain for a month afterwards.

  9. I was born in 81 . I’m so envious of these groupie gals who were born at the right time to have experienced the 1970s . If only I could have been born in the early to mid 50s I would have fit right in with them . All that delicious rock and roll man meat . It really sucks .

  13. Johnny A - I saw this version of Bad Company. Damn Yankees opened. “Bad Company” was the headliner, but I couldn’t take more than 45 min of them and walked out.

  14. Why are you people picking on Sarah Novak ?

    By Dennis on May 12, 2020

  15. Dennis- They do it because they have nothing but hate in their hearts and they can’t seem to keep from sharing it with everyone. I feel very sorry for them.

  16. I must admit. I have a 16 year old daughter and she is slowly turning into a very beautiful woman. Im noticing when she walks by, she is beginning to give me a chubby. I think shes packing 36B or C under that top. Im having these fantasies of going into her bedroom unzipping and sticking it in her mouth. Im want to fondle that sweater meat

    By Dennis on May 12, 2020

  17. I hope this doesnt make me a pervy pervert but between her developed top and these tight leggings all women wear now, it really shows off her curves and Im staring more and more at her shapely butt and cameltoe

    By Dennis on May 12, 2020

  18. You got me aroused now Dennis. I wish I could unzip you and fondle your manhood. Im so hard that Im stroking

    By Mark on May 12, 2020

  19. Dennis, do you know if Sarah knows how to deepthroat. I can use that right about now

  20. Racists have no sense of humor. Some of the attacks on them are pretty funny but when they retaliate it’s just sick. Racists also have no imagination.

  24. Brian lived in Fort Myers Beach, not far from where I lived in SWFL. He often appeared at charity shows and special events including one with AC/DC’s Cliff Williams and other big stars after Hurricane Charley hit our area in 2004. He was no Paul Rodgers, no one else could be. But few bands can replace lead singers and continue on another string of hits: Genesis was one and, thanks to Brian Howe, BadCo another. Yet it is indicative of what they thought of him that when the band released a 2CD anthology in 1999, none of Howe’s hits with them appeared on it.

  25. jdallenx I saw the same tour in louisville, Damn Yankees played almost 90 mins, unheard of for an opener, I left 3 songs into Bad Co, couldnt take it, Saw them in Rupp a few moths later and this time , we left right after Damn Yankees were done, back inlouisville Toy Tiger drinkin by 1130

  26. This show was recorded on Dec 13.1992, the night before Dec 12 1992 they played the Orpheum Theater in Boston Ma which was also recorded and simulcast on WBCN in Boston. The setlist was similar in Boston but there were a few more songs not played in NY the following night. I assume the Boston show was a warmup and/or a rehearsal for the NY show the following night as the tour was already over. Does anyone have a copy of the Dec 12 Orpheum Theater show in Boston that could be posted on here? I know WBCN aired the show a few different times. Thanks in advance.
