Brian Howe, former lead singer of British band Bad Company, passes away aged 66 in Florida after heart attack
Brian Howe’s friend and manager, Paul Easton, confirmed the news of the singer's passing in a statement.
Lake Placid: Brian Howe, the former lead singer of the British rock band Bad Company, died on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack at his Florida home. He was 66.
Howe’s friend and manager, Paul Easton, confirmed the rocker’s passing in a statement.
“It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the untimely passing of a loving father, friend and musical icon, Brian Howe,” Easton said.
Howe was found suffering from cardiac arrest at his Lake Placid, Florida, home, according to the statement. Rescue workers were able to have a short conversation with him, but Howe slipped away and didn’t regain consciousness.
The Portsmouth, England, native began his US career with Ted Nugent’s Penetrator album, which was released in 1984. Howe joined Bad Company in 1986 after the group’s original singer, Paul Rodgers, left.
The band’s second Howe-era album, 1988′s Dangerous Age, went gold with more than 500,000 sales. The 1990 album, Holy Water, attained Top 40 and platinum status by selling more than one million copies.
Howe left Bad Company in 1994 to pursue a solo career. He continued to tour with his band until earlier this year, when the coronavirus pandemic forced virtually all live performances to stop.
