Brian Howe Dies From Cardiac Arrest | Bad Company Lead Vocalist Brian Howe Dead:
Brian Howe’s career was jump-started, when he became the lead vocalist for “Penetrator” – Ted Nugent’s 1983 album – and later replaced Paul Rodgers as lead singer of Bad Company in 1986.
Howe, who was also a songwriter, credited as writing most of the group’s 1990 album “Holy Water,” which spawned hits If You Needed Somebody, the title track “Holy Water” and “Walk Through Fire.”
Howe’s final album with the group was “Here Comes Trouble” in 1992, which featured the Top 40 hit “How About That” and “This Could Be The One.”
He performed with the band until 1994, said that time, “Leaving Bad Company was not a difficult decision. It had got to the point where nobody was contributing anything to songwriting and quite frankly, the band was getting very very sloppy live.”
The Portsmouth-born singer then went on to have a solo career, releasing first solo album, “Tangled in Blue,” in 1997 on “Touchwood Records.”
In late February 2010, Brian Howe’s second solo album, “The Circus Bar,” was released in United Kingdom.
