Brian Howe first made his mark as the lead vocalist for Ted Nugent on the “Penetrator” album and subsequent tour.  In 1984 he filled Paul Rodgers shoes as the lead singer of Bad Company.  Looking back, it was a move that a lot of singers may have not had the courage to pursue but Howe eased into his role with Bad Company and became an integral part of the band for the next ten years.

In 1997 How released his debut solo album “Tangled In Blue” and now, over a decade later and still in fighting form Howe returns with a new solo album “Circus Bar”.  The album, written and inspired by a trip to Guatemala, boasts a collection of new songs written over a three day period and two newly recorded Bad Company songs “How ‘Bout That” and “Holy Water”.

I recently had a chance to chat with Brian about his new album and his storied career on the eve of his departure to entertain our troops in the Middle East.
