Straight Shooter is the second studio album by British supergroup Bad Company. The album was released in April 1975, a month after the release of the single “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” and four months before the album’s second single “Feel Like Makin’ Love”

The album reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart and was certified gold (500,000 units sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America a month after its release.

Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke revealed on ‘In the Studio’ (which devoted an episode to Straight Shooter) that the track “Shooting Star” (which told the story of a rock star who died early) was lyrically inspired by the drug and alcohol-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison.
