I want that magazine Arlene.
I just love Free.
Where did you get it and when did you get it.
Do you think it's still on sale?
To add to your story Paul said that Four Tops dude called him out of the blue and invited him to do the show. Paul was surprised they even knew he existed.
The Four Tops dude gave an interview and said
"We invited Paul because Paul is the soul of rock."
I thought that was really cool.
And it's true! A friend of mine just sent me a DVD of vintage live Free and it's just fucking amazing.
As I watch I keep thinking:
How can a group of white British kids have so much soul? It boggles my mind.
They were a fantastic group together for only four years.
And after watching this I have even less doubt that these guys influenced Freddie and the rest of the boys.
Great, great band.
It's too bad they imploded. If they had stuck around they would've been as legendary as Zeppelin.
Of that I have no doubt.
And Paul Kossoff has just jumped into my top 5 favorite guitarists of all time. Watching him has been a revelation. I'm a guitarist and it's like going back to school. So much feel and economy. Milking one note for all it's worth.
Great in rhythm as well as lead.
It's a shame the young man had to leave us so soon.
