Two years after the success with Holy Water, Howe made his last album with the group, called Here Comes Trouble.

He left the group in 1994.

”Leaving Bad Company was not a difficult decision. It had got to the point where nobody was contributing anything to songwriting and quite frankly, the band was getting very very sloppy live‚” he told media.

Howe then embarked on a solo career, but it never reached the level of Bad Company.

Howe was 66.

RIP, prayers for family and friends!
