Just. Couldn’t. Give. A. Fuck. About Bad Company. Never cared. Still don’t. Listened to this – because it’s a challenge. And feel the same way about them (still) as I do bands like Cheap Trick, Rush, Heart and Grand Funk Railroad. (Not comparing any of them as soundalikes of each other). Just bizarre to think these bands made it to such a level – to superstar status.
The 1970s: it was as good as it was bad. For every ground-breaking act there was some fucking horseshit fluking its way through to the big bucks.
I know that Bad Company’s musicians had chops. There are even one or two songs that sound vaguely song-like. I just don’t care. I missed it at the time. And I’m happily still missing it – without actually “missing it” if you know what I mean – now.
