Can’t Get Enough Of Those Band Reunions
Bad Company – Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke – are planning to reunite for a tour this year, according to a statement on the band’s website.
Meanwhile, drummer Carl Palmer has hinted that Emerson, Lake & Palmer will make a comeback this year, too.
Details for the Bad Co trek will be announced shortly.
A DVD capturing Bad Co’s last reunion performance – a one-off gig on August 8, 2008 in Hollywood, Florida – will be released soon.
The other original member of Bad Company, Boz Burrell, died in September 2006. The 60-year-old bassist suffered a heart attack at his home in Spain.
At present it is not known how the Bad Co reunion will affect Rodgers’ other project, Queen + Paul Rodgers.
Are Q+PR on hold, or is it finito for the team-up with Brian May and Roger Taylor? Watch this space.
Meanwhile, there are other reunions in the offing. As well as semi-obscure 80s UK rockers Chrome Molly (yes, seriously) drummer Carl Palmer is reporting on his website: “There is talk of an ELP reunion tour in the fall.”
