In 1991, the legendary Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Co., Queen) and powerhouse drummer Kenney Jones (The Faces, The Who) teamed up as THE LAW & delivered one incredible smash album. Although a short venture, it’s been an enduring chapter in the career of both superstars. With some major player help from David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Bryan Adams, Chris Rea, and Pino Palladino (The Who), the album netted the duo a #1 AOR Smash Laying Down The Law.
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.
In a career spanning twenty- five years and at least as many recordings, Alone In Bad Company is Jeff Lang’s momentous new album which presents the most organic union of Lang’s talents and influences yet. Released through ABC Music on February 24th this year Alone In Bad Company is filled with exquisitely sung stories and melodies demonstrating that, Lang is nothing if not a lover of song.
Recorded live in 2010, Extended Versions features Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke, Lynn Sorensen, and Howard Leese performing some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy,” “Feel Like Makin' Love,” and “Shooting Star.”
