Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers is open to the idea of releasing new music with the band.

They released their live album Bad Company Live In Concert 1977 & 1979 last month – the only official live release to feature the original lineup of Rodgers, Simon Kirke, Mick Ralphs and Boz Burrell.

And frontman Rodgers says the release – along with last year’s reissues of the first two Bad Company albums – have got him thinking about recording new music with the band.

He adds that he and guitarist Mick Ralphs have been writing songs.

Rodgers tells UCR: “I didn’t have any plans for recording with Bad Company, but the re-releases have made me think again a little bit because it is such a creative outfit.

“I’m writing songs, and I’m sure Mick has some songs, when he decides to come and play with us. ‘Who knows,’ I think would be the answer to that. And, ‘Maybe.‘”

Bad Company launch a tour with Joe Walsh this month, with former Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson in place of Ralphs, who’s decided to take a break from the road.
