Active in the British {{blues}} movement during TheSixties and TheSeventies, Free was an English rock group formed by Paul Rodgers (lead vocal), Paul Kossoff (lead guitar), Andy Fraser (bass guitar) and Simon Kirke (drums, percussion). Given the name "Free" by the London blues scene mastermind Alexis Korner, they quickly became leading exponents of BluesRock known for their top-class musicianship despite their youth.

While the band were slow to take off, they attained worldwide fame with their third album, ''Fire and Water'', which featured the massive hit "All Right Now". Noted for its distinctive guitar riff and bassline, this song broke the band in America and has remained a staple of ClassicRock radio for close to 40 years.

Although Free were relatively short lived, their influence on subsequent rock bands was considerable. Rodgers and Kirke subsequently formed a new group with Music/MottTheHoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and Music/KingCrimson bassist Boz Burrell. This group, of course, was Music/BadCompany, who became very successful in TheSeventies.

!!Tropes:

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Paul Kossoff, who died in the mid-1970s.
* BrieferThanTheyThink
* SignatureSong: "All Right Now".
