The Firm

A rock band comprised of ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, former Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers[?], ex-Uriah Heep drummer Chris Slade, and Roy Harper[?] bass player Tony Franklin. Formed in 1984, the band although having a distinguished pedigree, had sellout tours but only mediocre album sales. Both Page and Rodgers refused to play any material from their former bands and instead opted for songs which were heavily infused with a soulful and more commercially accessable sound, courtesy of Franklin's fretless bass guitar and understated song structure. In subsequent press interviews, Page had indicated that the band was never meant to last more than two albums. After the split, Page and Rodgers returned to solo work while Chris Slade joined AC/DC and Franklin teamed up with guitarist John Sykes in Blue Murder.
