Bad Co..the OTHER Guy

Paul Rodgers is THE voice of Bad Co, and one of the premier vocalists in rock history. But give credit to Mick Ralphs, the guitarist for the band, who will also be at Thunder Valley Friday nite in concert. Mick co-wrote a number of BadCo hits, and was the riff-master for many more.  He isn't the flashiest guitarist, but has a nasty tone, with memorable licks. Mick had been in Mott the Hoople before joining Rodgers to found BadCo in 1974, and had written "Can't Get Enough" for Ian Hunter (of the Hoople).  Ian couldn't sing it..but it proved to be the first monster hit for BadCo. In the pix, I'm chatting with Mick at Abbey Road Studios...and Mick plays his ax in a 1978 show.
