Brian Howe Career
Howe’s first concert in the United States was with Ted Nugent in 1984. Howe had been sending songs to Atlantic Records in London to try to reach a deal. Atlantic said they heard nothing but liked his voice. One day, Ashley Howe (unrelated but producer of Ted Nugent’s next album) was walking down the hall from the Atlantic offices and heard her voice. Ashley Howe had been searching for a singer for the next Ted Nugent album and thought Howe would fit in well . Howe was soon in New York City and signed a contract to become the lead singer for Ted Nugent and sang on the album Penetrator. The contract was not favorable to Howe and he was basically working at a very low rate (~ $ 450 / week)  and eventually left to pursue a solo career and album due to lack of song writing credits as “Tied Up” in Love. “After a call from Mick Jones of Foreigner, whom Howe tried to work with earlier in his career, Howe was introduced to Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke of Bad Company.
