Paul Kossoff – September 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Free guitarist Paul Kossoff, who sadly passed away in 1976 at age 25, would have turned 62 on Sept. 14.
Despite his brief time with us, Kossoff's influence is still felt strongly in the rock world. He recently earned the No. 51 spot on Rolling Stone's '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time' list. Kossoff and drummer Simon Kirke formed Free in 1968, touring for two years while recording the albums 'Tons of Sobs' and 'Free.'
It wasn't until 1970 that the band got that their first taste of fame with the release of 'Fire and Water,' which carried the immortal hit 'All Right Now.'
