BAD COMPANY – GREAT MUSIC
Back in 1973 the Moody Blues, the Byrds, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, David Bowie, and Bob Marley were touring. It was during this time of explosive talent that two former Free members, Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke, as well as Mick Ralphs from Mott the Hoople and Boz Burrell from King Crimson formed the super group – Bad Company. At the September 14 show at the SOEC that same power group took the stage with the exception of bassist Boz Burrell who died in 2006.
Murray Atkinson (the Odds) and his drummer Pat Stewart warmed up the crowd with a surprisingly big sound, considering it was just the two of them onstage.
After a short break, Bad Company took centre stage. They wasted no time and started the show with "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" which brought everyone to their feet.No comments
Last month an Ontario grandmother received an anonymous letter in the mail from an apparent mother in the neighborhood, who was furious over the “noise polluting whaling” of the woman's 13-year-old autistic grandson. The writer suggested she “go live in a trailer in the woods with her wild animal kid” and even recommended euthanizing him so they’d all be better off.
The hateful letter went viral on the internet and people were appalled by its cruel and heinous content. My friend Chris Smith said she was outraged as well, but not surprised in the least.No comments
