The former lead singer of the U.K. rock band "Bad Company," Brian Howe has died at the age of 66.
A statement on Howe's Facebook page this morning said the singer died from cardiac arrest
“Finding the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts over losing my brother has been difficult." Howe's sister Sandie said in a statement. “Our family would like to thank you for your compassion and the outpouring of love we are receiving.”
Howe joined Bad Company in 1985 after working with Ted Nugent on his “Penetrator” album. Howe took the place of the lead vocalist Paul Rodgers.
In a final tweet, from late April, Howe recalled his lifetime of accomplishments and one goal that he unfortunatley won't be able to do.\
"I’ve done a few things in my life," Howe wrote at the end of April. "I have sold millions of records and toured the world for the last 35 years but I want to appear on Tv with #RickyGervais who in my opinion is a genius."
Bad Company played "Summerfest" in Milwaukee in 1979.
