"Holy Water" is the ninth studio album by hard rock band Bad Company, and their third with Brian Howe as lead vocalist, released in June 1990. The singles on the album all received significant radio airplay. These included "Holy Water", "Boys Cry Tough", "Walk Through Fire", and "If You Needed Somebody", all of which charted fairly well. To date, this is the last album by Bad Company to go platinum.
Bad Company was a British blues-rock supergroup formed in 1973 featuring members of Free (Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke), Mott the Hoople (Mick Ralphs) and King Crimson (Boz Burrell).Their eponymous debut album was released in 1974 and was an immediate hit, promoted by the singles "Can't Get Enough" and ""Movin' On". They repeated this success the following year with Straight Shooter which spawned the singles "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Feel Like Makin' Love". The albums they released during this incarnation of the band peaked with the platinum-selling Run with the Pack but began to decline.
Dangerous Age is the eighth studio album by hard rock band Bad Company. The album was released on August 23, 1988. It was their second album with Brian Howe as lead vocalist and Steve Price as bass guitarist.

Straight Shooter is the second studio album by British supergroup Bad Company. The album was released in April 1975. The album reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart and the US Billboard 200. It was certified gold a month after its release. Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke revealed on In the Studio (which devoted an episode to Straight Shooter) that the track "Shooting Star" (which told the story of a rock star who died early) was lyrically inspired by the drug and alcohol-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison.
"FREE FOREVER" is an absolutely stunning double DVD on the British blues-rock band that reinvented the Rolling Stones' number one hit from 1969, "Honky Tonk Women," for their Top Five ticket to fame, "All Right Now," coming a year after the Stones classic. That half of this group, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, would form Bad Company and crank out hit after hit, chart action beginning in 1974, makes this compelling collection all the more valuable. There's so much great material on the two discs that one can spend hours exploring the restored archival footage, the new interviews, and perhaps the frosting on the cake – multiple camera images from the Isle of Wight festival performance. …
Paul Rodgers is the possessor of one of the great rock voices. As the frontman of first Free and then Bad Company he also established himself as one of the great rock performers and a classic songwriter. In 2005 he joined forces with Queen on their first full tour without Freddie Mercury, an association he has continued with their recent new studio album and accompanying tour. This Blu-ray was filmed in Glasgow on his sell out autumn 2006 UK tour and features powerful performances of songs from across his career.
From the release of their first album in 1974, Bad Company were one of the biggest hard rock bands of the '70s. Featuring former members of Free (vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke), Mott the Hoople (guitarist Mick Ralphs), and King Crimson (bassist Boz Burrell), Bad Company's straightforward but swaggering attack earned them a steady run of hits. While Bad Company never released a live album with their classic lineup, Atlantic/Rhino Records has delivered something special for the group's fans.
