It has been a long time since we’ve heard from Bad Company’s ex-frontman, Brian Howe (who was with the band from 1986-1995). After catapulting Bad Company to multi-platinum record sales in the late ’80s and early ’90s, with smash hits like “Holy Water”, “If You Needed Somebody”, and “How ‘Bout That”, Howe released a matured and underrated solo album called “Tangled In Blue” (1997). Thirteen years later and his new record, “Circus Bar,” has arrived. The album is one of the shiniest jewels in his rock and roll crown and Brian recently took some time to chat with us about the new release.
Q: “Circus Bar” is terrific and I can’t think of a better way to start the new record than with a song called “I’m Back”. How does it feel to be back with a new record after over a decade?
A: It’s actually pretty cool to be back in the saddle. Thirteen years is a long time to be away from a recording career and it feels good to be accepted again.
