Anyone into '60s
rock would consider Free together with Cream and Led Zeppelin among the
key blues-influenced bands. Formed in 1968, Free's original lineup included
drummer Simon Kirke, bassist Andy Fraser, vocalist Paul Rodgers and guitarist
When Free disbanded
in 1973, it has been reported that Rodgers was offered the lead vocalist
slot with Deep Purple which he turned down. He then joined Kirke, Boz
Burrell (King Crimson) and guitarist Mick Ralphs (Mott The Hoople) to
form Bad Company.
Before Bad Company
and during a fallout from Free, Rodgers also fronted Peace, which featured
Stewart McDonald and Mich Underwood.

Peace performed live at the BBC in 1971. These tracks were later recorded
by Free and Bad Company.
