Free - Tons of Sobs

RAMzine Classic: Free – Tons of Sobs

The most remarkable thing about Free when they formed in early 1968, has to be the ages of the band members; bass player Andy Fraser was 15 years old, lead guitarist Paul Kossoff was 17, and both drummer Simon Kirke and singer Paul Rodgers were 18. Kossoff and Kirke were in the band Black Cat Bones, but they felt things weren’t happening and decided ...

Apparently, when Michigan native Leigh Kakaty formed POP EVIL in 2001, he chose the name for a reason: He loved hard rock, played with a good melody but he also loved propulsive rhythms. For Kakaty, it was natural element he found in the songs he grew up with: the motown/soul, the funk of the railroad, the proto-punk of MC5 and ...
