Rock singer Brian Howe died May 5, 2020 in Lake Placid, Florida as a result of cardiac arrest at his home.  He was 66.  Howe had suffered a previous heart attack in 2017 and a scooter accident last month that resulted in a punctured lung and broken ribs.

Prior to his death, Howe was on tour until the global pandemic shut live events.

Howe was the lead singer for the British band Bad Company and sang with Ted Nugent.

Howe took over the lead vocal duties for Bad Company after the departure of Paul Rodgers in 1986 and remained until 1994.  He appeared on the albums “Fame & Fortune”, “Dangerous Age”, and “Here Comes Trouble”.

Prior to joining Bad Company, Howe sang with White Spirit when he took a job with Ted Nugent beginning in 1983.

As a solo artist, Howe recorded the album “Tangled in Blue”.

He was born in Portsmouth, England in 1953 where he was later “discovered” by Nugent.

His survivors include children Victoria, Ella, and Michael; sister Sandie; and grandchildren Kira, Alexandria, and Aurora,
