British rock band, consisting of Paul Rodgers (vocals), Paul Kossoff (guitar), Andy Fraser (bass), Simon Kirke (drums).

Best known for their 1970 top charting All right now, they have created more memorable work - one personal favourite of mine is Wishing well. Bad Company was very much a continuation under a different name.

You're probably going to disagree here, but listening to overviews of their music I just can't help thinking of all those contemporary British rock bands - Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, you name them - and imagine what they could have been with Paul Rodgers singing. Robert Plant is a flamboyant stage personality, Mick Jagger a competent composer, but as vocalists, really, there is no comparison.
