Bad Company: Kings Of The Castle!

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 26 October 1974

CLEARWELL CASTLE, Gloucestershire, Thursday – Mick Ralphs, clad in blue jeans, tee-shirts with Texas written on the front and dirty white fur-lined coat, hovers around a frying pan in the Baronial kitchen giving maximum attention to preparing a late breakfast of bacon and eggs. "Paul (Rodgers) likes beans," he says. "We had a long discussion the other night on the merits of beans on toast for breakfast. And I love a strong cup of tea. Can't do without it."
