Lost 80s at 4: Supergroup gets Radioactive
Asia, Power Station, Bad English, Mike + The Mechanics and Damn Yankees being the most prominent hit makers in the 80s.
Paul Rogers was already known for his work as the front-man for Free and Bad Company, and Jimmy Page had been lead guitarist for many bands, not the least of which was Led Zeppelin.
In 1984 the two got together to form The Firm. Page said the band was never intended to produce more than two albums and on this date in 1985 they released their self-titled first album. The album cracked the top 20 on Billboard on the strength of the single, "Radioactive."
