Andy Fraser, Bassist with Free

I have just seen on the BBC website that Andy Fraser has died at the age of 62. He was probably best known for co-writing Free's best known hit, 'Alright Now' with Paul Rodgers.

This is one of my all time favourite songs which I think has aged well over the last 45 years.

Very sad, he was part of the vanguard of modern blues and rock.

Brilliant band, remember seeing them play in The Bridgehouse or was it The Iron Bridge? Always got those two mixed up. I do have many of their albums (CDs) plus Paul Kossoffs Back Street Crawler. RIP Andy
