After leaving his band Free, Paul Rodgers sang briefly in a band named Peace, which toured with Mott the Hoople. While backstage one day, Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs played Rodgers some songs he'd written–including this blues rocker–that the Hoople had rejected. "From day one I knew that was a hit," Rodgers said. "I was surprised that anyone had difficulty seeing that." Inspired by Ralphs' song, the two agreed to form a supergroup, Bad Company, to record "Can't Get Enough." "I knew if we could write that sort of music, then we were going to be big," Rodgers said.
