Bad Company Disbanding Again?

Bad Company has spent more time apart than together over the last decade, so news that a concert next month at a Hard Rock Casino near Tulsa, OK might be the last one for the band is about as unexpected as a politician in a parade.  Paul Rodgers, who spent a couple of years in an on-and-off role with Queen, says Bad Co. has no plans for anything following the October 7 date.  He is quoted by as working on new solo material and a UK tour with his new band. Bad Company recruited Lynn Sorenson and Heart veteran Howard Lesse to fill the role of the late Boz Burrell.  Both are involved with the solo recording sessions Rodgers has done, which he calls 'very exciting.' Rodgers has also confirmed that Joe Perry offered him the lead singer slot in Aerosmith after that group's 2009 tour and the band itself nearly fell apart after Tyler fell off a stage in South Dakota and then went awol.  He called the prospect of filling Tyler's shoes '...a difficult scenario.Rodgers also considered signing on with Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood and John McVie after a jam session in Hawaii Rodgers said was full of '...all kinds of musical possibilities.'  As for whether Bad Company has a future, the vocalist says, 'We aren't putting Bad Company to bed', but. '...the band definitely is something that will be placed on the back burner.'
