All Right Now Musicians In The News
If you love the rock band “Free”, then you’ll love this news!
The End Records and BMG have teamed up to release Simon Kirke’s upcoming studio album, All Because of You, out February 10, 2017, in North America. Kirke was the drummer of the English rock band Free, founded in 1968, with original members Andy Fraser, Paul Kossoff and Paul Rodgers. Their biggest hit, “All Right Now,” reached number one in more than 20 territories.
The article then continues with some great insights around the inner workings of the band and how the guys felt about each other.
“I was never really a singer. When you’re in a band with Paul Rodgers, you don’t really need to sing because he’s so good. I did the occasional backing vocal, and I was never really a good singer. But, on this album, I really wanted to sing well. I took vocal exercises. Josh Solomon, the leader of the band, and his wife Erika, are both amazing singers. They taught me some exercises, and we did vocal warmups before each vocal take. It really helped my singing immensely. But, then again, I love playing drums.”
