Sad/UnHappy Andy Fraser RIP

I am sorry to report to friends that Andy Fraser has passed away. This is unfortunately not a rumour, as was the case in 2012. We were in the process of negotiating a performance with Simon Kirke and Luke Morley and heard the news today. Our thoughts with his friends and family.

Great choice David. Fire and Water too for me. Wow such intensity and feeling. Free and Deep Purple really were the two bands that I looked out for. I actually preferred them to Bad Co.which was (to me) a more obvious commercial route, albeit a successful one.

Glenn of course often cited Andy as one of his major influences in various interviews that we did with him and elsewhere throughout his career. He was naturally sad about the news. The early BCC demos were very heavily influenced by Free and other contemporary bands that preferred earth to planet Mars.

Another one gone.

There was a recent memorial story featuring extended reminiscing from both GH and Bonamassa? A link to an online version of the magazine. I think it was either posted to GH's Twitter or here? Any help finding it appreciated.
