Could a reunion of The Firm be in the works?
The short-lived group, launched in 1984 by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers, released two studio albums and toured before calling it quits during 1986. Now Chris Slade, who played drums with the group, tells MusicRadar that, “We are going to put (The Firm) together again. There were talks between their people, our people, people and other people and it was going to be put back together — and then this tiny, lesser-known band called Led Zeppelin got back together and did their reunion (in 2007), which knocked it in the head. Who knows what will happen? Never say never. It might happen.”
Rodgers, who’s currently on the road with Bad Company as well as his own band tells us he’s willing to say never:
“Should we do The Firm? I don’t know. I don’t really see that happening. Jimmy’s moved on away from that. I do some material, some of the Firm songs, with my solo band, maybe ‘Radioactive’ or ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed.’ But other than that, I think we’ve moved on in our ways. We’re still great friends, and Jimmy always comes to the shows, but I don’t see a Firm reunion.”
