In the early '70s, Led Zeppelin was the biggest band in the world. So when a young Bad Company was ready to take on a manager, singer Paul Rodgers simply reached out to Zeppelin's notorious overseer, Peter Grant. He figured it would be the group's one-way ticket to success. He was right.
Rogers recounts those early days of Bad Company in a new interview with AC/DC singer Brian Johnson on Johnson's AXS TV show, A Life on the Road.
"I can't believe I did that, now that I think about it," Rodgers laughed about the cold call to Zeppelin's cagey manager, revealing that Grant was interested, but initially hesitant about the band's name.
