Track Of The Day: Brian Howe
Brian Howe is the man who made his name in the mid 1980s with a string of successful albums with Bad Company. Now he’s back with a new solo album and the frontman – temporarily taking a break from donning the sackcloth and ashes for his beloved Portsmouth FC – provides us with the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the latest Tracks Of The Day – there are some real corkers.
Howe, who first got some attention with White Spirit (the band most known for giving us Iron Maiden guitarist Janick Gers) got a major break when singing on the 1983 Ted Nugent album Penetrator. From there, he got the offer of replacing Paul Rodgers in Bad Company – no easy task!
But over an eight-year period, Howe helped to redefine the sound of the iconic British band on albums such as Fame And Fortune (1986), Dangerous Age (1988) and Holy Water (1990).
Following his departure from Bad Company in 1994, Howe released the solo album Tangled In Blue (also known as Touch). But that was 13 years ago. Now he’s back with The Circus Bar, much of which was written in Guatemala – hardly the rock’n'roll centre of the universe! Joining the singer on the record are Pat Travers and Wayne Nelson of The Little River Band.
