You really got me. That's my the hoop. Poles version from their debut album came out fifty years ago in nineteen sixty nine the album was called rock and roll Queen. And that introduced the world to certain Mick Ralphs born Michael Jeffrey Ralph's and this day March thirty first back in nineteen forty four. So Mick Ralph's, turning seventy five today. And if you're not familiar with Mick from his work with Martha hoople his first band, you might know him better from a second band, bad company. Mc win ended joint form bad company and put out their first record in seventy four and he continued to work with bad company throughout the rest of his career. And once in a while reuniting with Ian Hunter and some of his other bandmates from the Hoopoe, but bad company being his main ongoing band, and then he also formed a blues band just called Mick row. Blues band in twenty seven and they put out a record in twenty sixteen and that is probably going to be the last recorded output from Mick Ralphs because that same year, he suffered a pretty devastating stroke. So he still with us, but don't know if they'll ever be able to play guitar again. So anyway, as we're getting ready to do episode one hundred twelve of the radio bypass by cast thought, we do a little salute to Mick Ralph's, great guitar player on his birthday. So kicking it off with the very first thing we ever heard from Mr. Ralph's from that hoople. And now the last album from bad company with both him and the almighty ball Rogers in it, the students called electric land. It's. Imagine. Ever. Electric lands bad company from their nineteen eighty two release rough diamonds and the last bad company record feature vocalist, Paul Rogers, but bad company under Mick Ralph's, watch continued on with a new lead singer and in nineteen eighty six they released an album called fame and fortune. This is the title track. Okay. It's. Fame and fortune and came out in nineteen eighty six that was the title of the album and the first to feature new vocalist, bad company, Mr Brian how and fame and fortune. The song was written by the birthday boy, Mick Ralphs. So we've got one more song in our birthday salute to Mr. Ralph's, and that is from his last album like I said in twenty sixteen he put out a record with his blues band and the record was called. If it ain't broke and it had mostly covers songs on there, including a version of a bad company song, they might recognize it originally came out in nineteen seventy seven twenty sixteen recording of it. And that's Hyun is too bad. Nikki. Ralph's and his blues band too bad from their twenty sixteen release if it ain't broke and that is probably going to be the last record. We hear from Mick Ralphs who is celebrating his seventy fifth birthday today. But unfortunately, as I said McKenna major stroke in twenty sixteen same year that they did this album and far as I know he's still paralyzed on his left side. So I don't know that we'll see mic back playing guitar, but it was his birthday today. And I thought we should salute them. So there you go. Happy birthday, Mick Ralphs.

Two thousand four they put out a record called Hawkin on Bobo and took a couple of months, but it did go gold and showed pretty well on all the charts number five and the tap two hundred chart, and then even number one on the blues chart, which is pretty good considering Aerosmith isn't a straight up blues band, but honk on Bobo did have Aerosmith doing a lot of cover songs of blue songs that influence them when they were first getting in the music and some of the stuff that shaped the sound of Aerosmith.
