DVD Review: Bad Company, Live At Wembley

Bad Company brings me back to my high school years, which was just last year. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.) I had the opportunity to view and review Bad Company's new DVD/Blu-Ray of their concert at Wembley Stadium in London.

At the start of the concert, I was a bit worried that lead singer Paul Rodgers would allow the audience to sing the chorus of all the songs. This is something that is only fun when you are actually AT a concert. Watching it on your TV at home, you just want the singers to sing and the audience to SHUT UP. By the fifth song, "Young Blood," I can admit to my foot moving involuntarily and singing out loud.

The concert contained all of my favorite Bad Company songs and a few I wasn't as familiar with. If Paul Rodgers wasn't lip-syncing, his voice is just as strong as it was 35 years ago. And he is fit enough, though a little rough around the edges, that "Feel Like Makin' Love" wasn't as creepy as it might have been. "Shooting Star" had me singing and foot-bobbing again while photos in lights of deceased rock starts flashed behind the band. It was a nice tribute to those we have lost.

By the end of the two or three encores, the drummer's shirt was noticeably drenched in sweat. And I was noticeably reminiscing.

Bad Company: Live At Wembley is available on CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray.
