Simon Kirke is best known as the drummer for Bad Company. In 2011, he released a solo album called Filling The Void
, where he confronted a lifetime of addiction. On his 2017 album All Because Of You
, he is recovering, looking back on what nearly killed him in the song "Into The Light."
"That's me in dealing with addiction," he said in a 2017 Songfacts interview
. "I've been in and out of the program. I'm honest enough to say that I'm not 100 percent sober. I try not to drink. Drink was my drug of choice. It's better if I don't drink. But I stay away from hard drugs and I haven't done hard drugs in 20 years."
