Each Thursday this summer, BIG 100.3 will play a classic live performance at noon.  The song will come from actual concerts in the Washington D.C. area.

#TBT (also known as Throwback Thursday) is an opportunity to take a look (and a listen) back to the incredible artists that have come through the nation's capital over the years.

This week's #TBT will feature Bad Company.  The song will come from their performance at "Outlaw Jam" at the Frederick Fairgrounds on August 7, 2010.  The song is Shooting Star

Bad Company will perform at Jiffy Lube Live with Lynyrd Skynyrd on Saturday night.

After Free broke up in 1973, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke joined forces with former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell.  The foursome formed Bad Company.

Bad Company was the first band to release an album on Led Zeppelin's Swan Song Records.  The band's original lineup released six albums on the label from 1974 to 1982.

The band broke up after the release of 1982's Rough Diamonds.  They reunited without Paul Rodgers in 1986.  Former Ted Nugent singer Brian Howe stepped in.  Bassist Boz Burrell also was not a part of the reunion.  

Kirke and Ralphs continued with various other musicians as Bad Company through the rest of the 1980's and into the 1990's.

The original Bad Company lineup reunited and toured together in 1999.  After the tour, Ralphs and Burrell left the band.  Rodgers and Kirke continued and toured again in 2001.

Boz Burrell died of a heart attack on September 20, 2006.

The three remaining original members have been touring together since 2008.
