Articles on Howard Leese



The Banger Sisters

The story of the reunion of two ex-groupies, formerly known as the Banger Sisters, who were best friends in their wild rock 'n' roll days. One is now a nostalgic "punked-out waitress" (Goldie Hawn) in Los Angeles, while the other is a Phoenix socialite (Susan Sarandon) who would rather hide her scandalous past.

Till The Day I Die

From: Steven R, Montreal, Quebec.

Growing up in Montreal in the 60's and 70's from a musical perspective was awesome. I remember I was sitting in the living room of my first Girlfriends house in my public school days in Dollard Dex Ormeaux. Her name was Carol and she was all excited about a new album she wanted me to hear. In those days all the Bands would cut an album and then follow it up with a Tour. It was 1974 and I was 12 and the album was called simply " Bad Co." as in Bad Company. 

We listened together and needless to say I have been a fan ever since. I collected all their music and continued to play all those songs even though I hadn't heard anything new from them in over 28 years.I was only 12 then so I was too young to see their concerts but I bought this DVD last week and I had to hassle the mgmt. here at Future Shop to get this DVD in the store on St. Catherine.I'm glad they were able to do it for me. Now I am hassling House Of Blues to get them to contact Bad Co. to perform here again. WOW. As far as Live Concerts go this is one of the best I have ever seen and certainly The Best Reunion concert ever filmed. The sound on the DVD is 5.1 and DTS - what can be better. The special features explain why they disappeared. Hard Core fans will remember they were the only Band other than Led Zeppelin managed by Peter Grant and recorded on Swan Songs Label. Every Hit they ever had is here including an Unbelievable Version of the Famous "Free" song "It's Alright Now". 

Best of all, During Rock and Roll fantasy- the Band breaks into Ticket to Ride and She Says So by the Beatles and Paul Rodgers singing and the bands accompanyment here is some of the best I have ever heard. Forget The New Stuff , Next to bad Company, People like Eminem and Brittany and Back Street Boys etc etc, all the bands of Today- SUCK- compared to this stuff. Give me good old Talent over Flash and Pomp and you'll get a smile Everytime.The New single "Joe Fabulous" is the best new rock song I have heard in over 10 Years. This song makes me happy. That's what this DVD does. Makes you Happy.!!! Remember that Old Catch Phrase- It applies today more than ever, especially given the dismal state of the recording industry..."Bad Company...Till the Day I Die"

New Times for Chat


Seems many people want to chat but keep missing each other. We shall try a new method for those who cant make the arranged times.

On the hour, every hour, round the clock the chat room will be open. If you wish to chat with another fan, then turn up EXACTLY on the hour. This way whichever country or state you're from it will work. Of course if no fans want to talk at the same time, you will have to try another hour.

So, on the hour the chat room will be open. I suggest if you don't see another fan for 5 mins give up.

Good luck

Small Faces All Star Charity Band  - Buy it online at & type small faces. Cost 4.99 UK pounds.

Mick Ralphs and Ian Hunter Review

By Michael Roobottom (Free At Last)

The Limelight Club, Crewe, England
Mon 13th may 2002

It's been almost 30 years since Ian Hunter and Mick Ralphs were together in Mott the Hoople so this was a gig not to be missed. I've played The Limelight Club in Crewe many times with Free at Last so I knew it was worth travelling the extra 50 miles rather than waiting to see them in Wolverhampton in a couple of weeks time, so with the club packed to a capacity of only about 400 at least I'd get to see them up close. 

So here we go, the house lights dim and the band are on stage straight into 'One of the boys' followed by 'Once bitten, twice shy' and a couple of tracks from Hunter's new album. Mick Ralphs sure seems to be enjoying himself slipping right in with Hunter's post Mott tunes. Next came walking with a mountain and a version of Dylan's 'Knocking on heaven's door' with a great solo from Mick. Ian Hunters latest album Rant is a great album in the vein of most of his previous work (if you like Mott you'll like this) great rock'n'roll songs with great lyrics, five or six of which are featured in the set. Mick Ralphs leaves the stage while Hunter performs the emotional 'Michael Picasso' his tribute to the late great Mick Ronson, and then returns to perform his version of the classic blues instrumental 'Hide away'. 'Roll away the stone', 'Rock'n'roll queen', 'All the young dudes' and they're off. 

The crowd chant Hunter, Hunter; clap their hands, whistle, stamp their feet and the band are back on for the encore. Another tune from Rant, 'All the way from Memphis', 'The golden age of rock'n'roll' and finally a rip through Little Richard's 'You keep on knockin' and it's all over. I'm sure I've left a lot out but it's hard to remember detail when you're enjoying yourself so much and a set that lasted 2hrs 15mins goes by in the blink of an eye.

Janah opens for Alanis Morissette

Here is the line-up for the Alanis Morissette show at Vanilla Coke?s On the Bricks, June 14 in Atlanta:

Guitarist Wanted for Free Tribute Band in the UK

FREE AGAIN, the Original Tribute to Free and Bad Company (as featured elsewhere on this site) seeks new guitarist.

Ideally should be accomplished, versatile, good natured, interested in the band's total sound not just his own, and true to the spirit of Kossoff's style. Mature, professional attitude essential. Rehearsals in and around Cambridge, gigs mostly within an eighty mile radius, but some further afield. Might suit (for example) London-based ex-professional with contacts.

Hollywood's Rockwalk

Drummer Simon Kirke holds the distinction of having played with some of the giants of rock and roll, particularly Britain's upper echelon, including Free and Bad Company with Paul Rodgers.

Additionally, he's done numerous sessions and tours with the likes of Ringo Starr, Pete Townsend and The Who. Kirke is considered one of the best drummers in classic rock, and continues to record and tour today.

Simon was inducted into the Rockwalk in May 1997.

Off the Record with Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke

Joe Benson, ARROW 93's Morning Man in Los Angeles, CA. has a hour long nationally syndicated program in the United States called "Off the Record." This Sunday 03/03/2002, Joe will feature the music of Bad Company and Joe's recent conversation with vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke.

Check out this link:

Then click on the "Radio/Music/Racing Link" for a city in your area that is broadcasting it. For our friends across the ocean and for the cities or states that don't carry the program, some radio stations will stream the show. The list is fairly up to date and accurate, but of course, always check with the actual radio station to ensure they are still carrying the program. Enjoy!!

Latest on Christian Turner

From www.badcompany .com January 22nd:

Christian Turner is gaining fans big time. Tonight he got a standing ovation from some of the fans with his rendition of "Dock of the Bay". After the show he meets and greets his fans and signs autographs. The guy is a natural with people.

Bad Company starts Tour

Review from a fan:

"Opening act Christian Turner. The refreshing voice of Christian warmed up the audience really well. He will be opening up for a number of the shows.

I believe this was the best show Bad Company had ever done. And also think this will be the best tour .... and suggest if you were not going to see one of these shows, you better make new plans.

Paul was in TOP TOP FORM. Every member of the band was just excellent.

Four Encores.

Neil Schon came on early in the set and played Amazing Grace. During the encore Neil came out again and played Crossroads, and Muddy Waters Blues with Bad Co. Also Bad Co played some songs they don't usually play.

Paul wore black pants, orange snug med sleeve shirt. He looked better than ever before. Just awesome."

New Band for Jason and Howard

Jason Boyleston's new band is called The Cut. Which also has Howard Leese on it. Appearing at the House of Blues Los Angeles, Saturday, January 26th.
