Free's Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke Pay Tribute To Andy Fraser

. (Classic Rock) Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke have led tributes to former Free bandmate Andy Fraser, who died on Monday aged 62. No cause of death has been reported, but he'd been dealing with AIDS and cancer for many years.

Drummer Kirke said: "Andy didn't think of himself as a bass player, more a musician who could play anything to 'get the thing going.' When I last saw him he took me for a spin in his car, while he played some tracks he'd written.

"He'd played everything, but it was his singing that surprised me the most. He was a consummate musician. A unique player. We will never see his like again."

Singer Rodgers said simply: "Losing Andy is very personal. No words. Sad day." Quireboys frontman Spike, who was planning to work with Fraser on a project, also discussed Andy here.
