Ted Nugent

After moving to the USA, he met Ted Nugent, an American singer. He had the opportunity to collaborate with Ted Nugent in the year 1984. Hearing Brian’s voice, Ted’s agent Ashley Howe thought that he would be good for Ted’s next album as they badly needed a singer at the time. They signed a contract and Brian sang songs for Ted’s Penetrator album. But, Howe soon left because he was being much underpaid. He was being paid only about $450 a week. He left Ted to make a solo career in music. After some time, Howe met Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke of the rock band named Bad Company.

Bad Company

Paul Rodgers, the former singer of Bad Company, left the band to join a supergroup called The Firm. Due to this, the remaining members of the band were in search of a new vocalist. The remaining band members, Mick and Simon, met Brian Howe after urging him to leave Ted Nugent and meet them in New York. After deciding some things between them, Mick, Simon, and Brian decided to give it a go. 

Brian’s vocal style was loved by the fans of the rock genre. The band released their first album named Fame and Fortune in 1986. The album was a huge success. The fans were loving the band’s work. He kept on recording albums with the band like Holy Water, Here Comes Trouble, and What You Hear Is What You Get: The Best of Bad Company. The final album of Brian Howe’s when he was in Bad Company was the 1992’s Here Comes Trouble which featured the Top 40 hit like How About That and This Could Be The One. The album was such a hit that it went gold.

However, Brian Howe finally left the band after being with them for eight years to focus on his solo career.
