Jools Holland and Paul

Fans of Jools Holland
Articles from Yahoo fans

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
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

New Paul Rodgers Track

"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 yesterday.
 It's a great album generally, but you just keep flicking it back to track 9!!

The Free Story Tribute Band


About The Free Story

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.
