“Nobody talks about him, and they should. He was a giant. A very forgotten, underrated player - one of the best guitarists of the early ’70s.
“I could probably name the whole Free catalogue and not come across a bad Paul Kossoff performance. I’m A Mover, Walk In My Shadow, Heavy Load, Fire And Water, Mr Big - he's great every time. His vibrato was the best ever. He was like Freddie King and BB King: one note and it was all over. The guy didn’t need effects. Everything Paul Kossoff did came from his fingers and went right into the amp. He was his own effects unit.
“The two Free albums I love the most are Tons Of Sobs  and Live At The BBC [import, released in 2006]. Both are superb. If you want to hear Paul Kossoff in his prime, those are the ones.”
