Free was a British blues-rock band which formed in London in 1968. The band were famed for their sensational live shows and nonstop touring although their early studio albums sold slowly until the release of Fire And Water, which contains their most popular song All Right Now. This song helped secure them a place at the huge Isle of Wight Festival 1970 where they played to 600,000 people. As surviving band members ruefully admit, personal problems got in the way and they broke up on the brink of something big, perhaps never realising their true potential. More Info »

Free. Artist Bio

Free was a British blues-rock band which formed in London in 1968. The band were famed for their sensational live shows and nonstop touring although their early studio albums sold slowly until the release of Fire And Water, which contains their most popular song All Right Now.

This song helped secure them a place at the huge Isle of Wight Festival 1970 where they played to 600,000 people. As surviving band members ruefully admit, personal problems got in the way and they broke up on the brink of something big, perhaps never realising their true potential.

Lead singer Paul Rodgers went on to become lead singer of the rock band Bad Company along with Simon Kirke on drums. Paul Kossoff, the hugely talented and much-revered lead guitarist (son of British religious broadcaster David Kossoff), died tragically from drug-induced heart failure in 1976, aged 25.

Free is the name of two other bands found on last.fm.
