Paul Rodgers legendary singer, songwriter and frontman for Free, Bad Company and The Firm has announced that he will be heading out across the UK this May on the ‘FREE Spirit’ Tour performing songs strictly from the Free catalogue. 

On the subject of performing songs from Free’s renowned back catalogue and why the decision was made to name the tour the ‘FREE Spirit’ Tour, Paul Rodgers had the following to say. 

"It was 50 years ago in 1967 when Paul Kossoff and I met and later formed Free. We first jammed together at the Fickle Pickle Blues Club in Finsbury Park, we wanted exactly that, to be free to play the music that we loved, blues and beyond. We knew we had something special between us when people told us that when we played time stood still. He brought in the rhythm section, Simon Kirke from

his band The Black Cat Bones and found the advertisement at the Nags Head Battersea for a "Bass player ex-John Mayall looking for a gig" Andy Fraser.

Not only was Koss the soul of the band, playing every note deeply...from his very soul he also had great organisational skills, everybody loved him and rightly so.

The first song that Koss and I wrote together was "Moonshine". I remember him playing the music and he asked if I could write the melody and lyrics. In fact it was that song we were playing when Alexis Corner walked in to our rehearsal and gave us the suggestion for a band name "Free At Last".

We went with just Free and I am still reeling from the memories."
