Andre Gardner with Simon Kirke (Free, Bad Company)
It’s always a pleasure to chat with Simon Kirke, legendary drummer with Free and Bad Company. Over the years, each time we chat, he’s gracious to share stories of his time with those bands, and now he’s coming back to town with another legend, G.E. Smith (Hall & Oates, Roger Waters, Bob Dylan) for two very special shows at the Victor Vault in Berlin New Jersey on Saturday October 29. They’ll be playing select tracks from Free & Bad Company, plus some other blues tracks featuring G.E.’s amazing slide guitar work.
We had a chance to chat about how he and G.E. came together, his time in Bad Company, and he shared a hilarious story about Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin and Bad company’s manager. Take a listen to our conversation here:
