The highlight though for me was when Jools goes something
like 'a man from America, he sang a song with us on our new
CD PAUL RODGER'S' This was a total suprise! The man is the
voice of rock and wow another hero of mine! Nearer the end he
came back on and sang 'All right now' which was stunning, it
was like a rock gig at that point, the ones at the front who had
stood up jumping up and down and reaching out to hold his
hand (yes baby i held his hand ). ALEX UK
What can I say. A magnificent weekend with some wonderful people -
friends old and new - and superb entertainment. I have to agree with
Alex about Paul Rodgers - what a superb voice and a great surprise to
have him as a guest! I was in Year 10 at school I think when All
Right Now was re-released (cos of the Wrigley's ad) and it kind of
passed me by as I was into Morrissey, The Smiths and other miserable
music!!! That is the one great things about the Friends album
though.. have come across another great voice and a man who so
obviously enjoys being on stage. Ali

News from Simon Kirke
The following article was published from simonkirke.com
as seen in his journal.
Tues November 25th
Hi everyone Just wanted to tell you about a 'secret' gig I did last Sat.
I was approached by Ellen Barkin to put together a band for a benefit
concert for Michael J Fox. He suffers from Parkinson's disease and this
event was to raise money for research into it.
I put together a wonderful bunch of musicians. Mark Rivera from Billy Joel
and Ringo's band, GE Smith on lead guitar, musical director of the SNL Band,
T-Bone Wolk and Jeff Kazee on bass and keyboards who work with Bon Jovi and
Hall & Oates...Jeff Korba on 2nd keyboards and Lisa Fischer - who tours
with the Stones- on lead vocals. And my daughter Domino who sang a song and
provided back-up vocals.
It was a wonderful evening with guest appearances from Jon Bon Jovi
& Richie Sambora, Joan Jett (we kept her as a surprise from Michael
J..she appeared with him in a video on Bruce Springsteen's "Light of
Day") and John Mayer who knocked me and the musicians sideways with his
solo spot..he was great.
We all got on stage at the end jammimg on Allright Now--with yours truly
singing himself hoarse being egged on by Bon Jovi and co.!--and Johnny B
Goode with Michael J Fox playing lead guitar (I forgot to mention he played
Koss's solo on Allright Now almost note for note)
A great night...and five and a half million dollars was raised . If I
get a photo I will post it on the site.
Keep writing ...I haven't forgotten you all...Happy Thanksgiving to all of
you and I hope to see some of you at Crash Mansion 199 Bowery in NYC on the
10th of December
Paul Cox - Paul was involved a special benefit concert for the legendary
where he performed on stage with Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company)
and Gary Brooker (Procul Harum).

Have you been missing REAL ROCK, guys that can play, CD’s that you
listen to from start to finish? Well here’s a CD by a band that’s been
called, “the best of Bad Company and early Lynyrd Skynyrd.” Tired of
music that’s better-played quiet? Looking for a band that you want to turn
up? Welcome to the sound of King Karma, a mixture of West Coast with two
shots of Southern Comfort for flavor.
"My expectations were high for Paul's
performance on Jools Holland's CD but I
have to say he smashed through them! Its a great
song and Paul's vocal just
made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up when I heard it
It's a great album generally, but you just keep flicking it back to track

About The Free Story http://www.thefreestory.com/
THE FREE STORY were formed in the summer of 2003 by Gerry Toal
& Steve McDonald with the intention of creating a first class live
show paying tribute to the music of Paul Rodgers, Free & Bad Company.
With a wealth of music to draw on (8 albums by Free, 6 by Bad Co &
numerous solo efforts) finding the material was easy enough offering a
depth and range rarely seen in today's markets.
Drawing on their vast international experience Steve & Gerry have
crafted a well balanced and dynamic show, which works well and is varied
enough to suit most venues while retaining its integrity. Both playing
lead guitar & vocals they were joined by John McIvoy on drums, a local
session musician of the highest quality.
The jewel in the crown was the return to the country of Ian Cussick on
bass and lead vocals. Ian has returned to Britain after a 20-year career
as a solo artist in Europe releasing 10 albums including one with the
Munich symphony orchestra and touring with TOTO, this then completed the
line up of THE FREE STORY.
