Free were an English rock band, formed in London in 1968 and best known for their popular song "All Right Now".
Lead singer Paul Rodgers went on to become lead singer of the rock band Bad Company along with Simon Kirke on drums. Lead guitarist Paul Kossoff, a much revered blues-rock guitarist, died from a drug-induced heart failure at the age of 25 in 1976.
The band was famed for its sensational live shows and nonstop touring. However, early studio albums did not sell very well - until the release of Fire and Water which featured the massive hit "All Right Now" this album brought them to full status as one of the top rock bands of the 1960-70's. This song helped secure them a place at the huge Isle of Wight Festival 1970 where they played to 600,000 people.
