Paul Rodgers Credits Fans, Radio for Keeping Bad Company Alive

Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers is thrilled with the fact that the band’s ongoing reunion shows have been going great. After wrapping a bunch of joint shows with old friends Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as a bunch of gigs on their own, the band’s enjoying a month’s break before hitting the final stops of their 2013 summer tour.

Paul Rodgers told us that he feels that the continued allure of Bad Company as a viable live act has everything to do with radio never once forgetting about the band. We asked him if the fans treat the current shows as if it was back in the ’70s: “Yes, they do. Y’know, it’s amazing, and radio is great, too, because the music seems to be, kind of radio friendly and it’s great that they keep pumping that music out there. I think it has stood the test of time, as they say. Y’know, for me, I, I look at my influences; soul and blues. I still am moved by those records that first, y’know, made the hair crawl on the back of my arms, y’know? And I still feel the same way about my influences, so I can’t understand how people . . . y’know, once you’re moved by some music, it sort of stays with you.”

Bad Company has teamed up with DiscLive Network, to present fans with double CD soundboard copies of their shows. The discs, which are available for purchase the night of the concert, “will be individually numbered and packaged in super high quality digipaks . . .will also contain an extra ‘bonus’ CD with an exclusive ‘rockumentary’-style interview with the band.”

September 14 – Penticton, BC – South Okanagan Events Centre
September 19 – Manson, WA – Deep Water Amphitheater
September 21 – Glen Ellen, CA – B.R. Cohn Charity Events Fall Music Festival at B.R. Cohn Winery (Paul Rodgers solo)
