Bad Influence is described as a 'rock and blues' band and that is where they sit quite comfortably. However, this band has many musical influences and it shows in just about every song on the new CD. Val is often described as 'Bonnie Raitt gone raunchy' or 'powerful like Janis Joplin'. Richard squeezes every ounce of passion from the guitar, whilst Harry and Pete hold it very tightly together at the back. Originally formed in 1986, by Val Cowell (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), and Richard Hayes (lead and slide guitar).
