Free Forever

 

Broadcast times
Thu 11 Oct 2007 9:00PM - 10:00PM

 

21:00 Free Forever  -

Free were one of the most influential bands of the late 60s and early 70s with hits including All Right Now.

 But did their success lead to destruction? Here, the surviving members talk about their glory days.

 

 

Free Forever

Remember the song All Right Now? This is a fascinating insight into the rise and fall ofthe band behind that famous hit; Free.

 

 

Free were one of the Sixites most influential bands, formed during the British blues boom. But they only had one major hit, so what happened? This is their story, in their own words...

This unique film talks intimately to each band member as they discuss their experiences and their incredible journey, starting from how they came to decide on the band's name right through to why the band split and how they got back together for the sake of troubled late guitar player Paul Kossoff, who sadly died when he was just twenty-five.

 

Amongst these in depth interviews with Paul Rodgers, Andy Fraser and Simon Kirke are live performance excerpts from the band at their peak, including their appearance at the infamous Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, when they played to an audience of 750,000 people. Then still riding high on the success of their huge single All Right Now, the band talk about how it felt to perform to such a large crowd and how having a huge hit single was also branded as the 'kiss of death'...

    MY ROCKSTAR DREAMS WEBSITE

    My name is Shaun Williamson. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have spent the last 25 years working as a professional singer/songwriter.

    I’ve created this blog with hopes of it becoming a great source of “NO BS” information and tips to help up-and-coming artists and bands weave their way through the many perils of the music business.

    There are a lot of sites out there promising sure-fire ways to be successful, and sorry to say, there is no such way. Everyone’s road is different. All I can do is provide information from my personal experience. I think it will be great to have some of my musician and industry friends submit articles to share some of their expertise as well!

    Some of my credits:
    BANDS:

    RECORDING PROJECTS:

    • Classic MOODY BLUES HITS (Feat. Justin Hayward & Friends)
    • JAMES BROWN (The “Keep James outa jail record”..didn’t work)
    • Various studio projects including jingles, background vocals, etc..(I can’t remember all of them, so I’m not going to try..haha!)

    Medical update 3rd Oct

    Lucy's Medical Update Oct 3rd

    Hi Ya'll - Well I was at my heart doctor yesterday and he has been re-arranging my heart meds which

    became messed up during my 6 day stay in hosptial for the ovarian cyst.  I also saw my knee surgeon today who was hoping his surgery

    that he did on me was well healed, but due to my meds being messed up now need to have  my legs checked for

    blood clots. If they appear clear I will start with a new therapist who will give me treatment 3 times weekly.

    It's amazing how much happened to me in 6 days without surgery, can you just imagine if the surgery would have taken place what state I would be in.

    Other than that all is well and Rob and Samara are helping me full time at home.

    I still do my updates as needed. Keeps my mind busy too.

    Talk soon. Love to All Lucy

    HEAVEN & EARTH

    "Pandora's Electric Box" the World's Most Dangerous House Bands 2nd show at AQUA LOUNGE

     this Wednesday, October 3rd with special guests legendary keyboard player

     Keith Emerson and Heart/Paul Rodgers guitarist Howard Leese.!


    Location -

    AQUA Restaurant & Lounge

    424 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills. 90210

    one block south of Santa Monica Blvd. (street parking on Brighton Way)

    www.aqualoungebh.com

    (310) 275-8511

    The Club –
    The Aqua Restaurant & Lounge has a really cool vibe with a superb restaurant, 2 bars and a brand new sound system. This is truly an “underground club”! Follow the cool blue glow emanating from Aqua and descend the stairs into the under-the-sea themed bar. The subterranean space, formerly operated as the Hustler Club, basks in a Mermaid-style makeover replete with several immense fish aquariums and plasma screens set among dark-hardwood floors and lounge furniture. Squinting humans migrate, in semi-darkness, between two bars and a central stage that has featured live performances from the likes of Dennis Quaid. Don’t leave without trying the exotic “aquatic” cocktails (a Mermaid or Stingray, perhaps?) or numerous tapas options including crab cakes with avocado relish!

    Parking tip –
    Skip the valet--the waits can be long--and opt for parking along Brighton Way or even Rodeo Drive, if spaces aren't available immediately in front of the club.

    Medical Update. 1st Oct

    Hello friends of ARN, I am delighted to be home after spending 6 very long days in hospital

    As you know I was due to have surgery for a ovarian cyst on the 28th Sept

    On the 24th I had a colonoscopy - during this procedure my cyst ruptured, which sent me directy into the emergency room

    For the following days I had treatment for the cyst and was also treated for my  heart condition - Atrial Fibulation  which I am still be treated for, this is something I have had for many years but didnt say anything about,

    but the wonderful news is the cyst was benign. !!!

      It will be still some months before I am back to normal but wanted to fill you all in and Thank all of you for your emails and cards you sent,

    You sure know how to show your love and support. It really kept me strong,

    I will update the site from time to time but still need some time for recovery

    Love you all

    Bye LUCY

     

    Paul Rodgers weds Cynthia Kereluk

     

    London, UK (September 24, 2007)

     The Soul of Rock

     Paul Rodgers married former Miss Canada, Exercise Physiologist and Artist Cynthia Kereluk

    in a surprise outdoor wedding ceremony on their 10th anniversary.  The guests were invited to a garden party at their country home and were informed that the entertainment would begin at 7 pm - at which time it was announced by Paul that the guests were actually attending their wedding.  So, under a rising moonlit sky of shooting stars, in Canada's Okanagan Valley, Rodgers and Kereluk exchanged vows before 70 of their closest friends and family.  The most humorous moment occurred when Cynthia was asked do you take this man to be your husband and she responded with, "Absolutely!" and then added, "I do."

    "There is magic on earth." said Paul

    Paul's Debut Solo DVD "Live in Glasgow" is currently #3 on the US Charts, #1 in Canada and hit #4 in the UK.The 13 camera DVD was filmed on October 13th 2006 at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland during Rodgers' sold out UK Tour."Paul Rodgers has been and still is by far one of the finest talents of our musical genre."Jimmy Page 2007

    In October, Paul will be going into the studio with Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor writing and recording new songs for a potential Queen + Paul Rodgers album.
