Kossoff ... The Band Plays On
It’s 47 years ago since Paul Kossoff; the guitar prodigy whose soaring playing lit up 1970s rockers Free, tragically died in March 1976 aged just 25, but his music lives on...

Billed as Kossoff…The Band Plays On, this is not a covers band or tribute act as the band is fronted by Terry Slesser, the lead vocalist of Back Street Crawler; Kossoff’s post-Free band. Guitarist John Buckton embodies the sound, soul and rawness of Koss' playing, and it’s no surprise that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said: "If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist." Paul Kossoff had his own unique style, and it lives on in John Buckton’s fretboard.The line-up is completed by the highly revered Status Quo bassist John ‘Rhino’ Edwards, and powerhouse drummer Clive Edwards, formerly of UFO.

The Band Plays On feature the absolute best of Free and Back Street Crawler’s back catalogue including: Fire and Water, The Hunter, Molten Gold - one of the first tracks Slesser and Kossoff played together, and the anthemic world-wide hit All Right Now.

Frontman Terry Slesser knows how to captivate an audience. Aside from his amazing vocal ability - the reason Kossoff chose Terry to front his band – he has some very entertaining anecdotes that pull back the curtain on song-writing, recording, and life on and off the road, all delivered with style and panache.

Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his personality shone through in his performances. All of this is brought to life in a show which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist…

The evening will also pay tribute to Rob Dunn, the original drummer for Kossoff…The Band Plays On, who sadly passed away very recently.
