(Classic Rock) Spike's Free House will press ahead with their 2015 touring plans despite the death of bass player Andy Fraser. Fraser passed away in March at the age of 62.

The Free bassist had battled Aids and cancer but was due to perform with The Quireboys frontman Spike in his band Spike's Free House - set up to celebrate the music of Free and Frankie Miller.

The band sees Spike joined by Free's Simon Kirke, Thunder's Luke Morley and Magnum's Mark Stanway. The Quireboys' Nick Mailing will be on bass duties.

Spike says: "There was a lot of soul searching after we heard the terrible news about Andy. He was a huge part of what we were doing and was so excited about hooking up with Simon again.

"We weren't sure whether we could - or should - continue but I have a feeling it's what Andy would have wanted. Emotionally, it will be a tough show for all of us but I'm confident it can still be the celebration of great songwriting we always intended it to be." Read more here.
