Kossoff - The Band Plays On

  • This event has now passed

A very special evening to celebrate the life and music of Paul Kossoff.

It’s 47 years since Kossoff, the guitar prodigy, aged just 25, tragically died in March 1976 - but his music lives on.

Renowned vocalist Terry Slesser has put together a fine ensemble of high-calibre musicians to pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Paul Kossoff  (best known for one of the most memorable guitar solos of all time featured on Free’s classic hit All Right Now). This is not a covers band or 'tribute' act, as Terry was the vocalist in Kossoff’s post-Free outfit Back Street Crawler.

Terry’s shared experiences of working, touring / recording and living with Koss truly differentiate this show bringing an authenticity that no ‘tribute’ act could .

Kossoff…The Band Plays On will feature the very best of Free and Back Street Crawler’s back catalogue. Highlights will include Free’s world -wide hit and rock anthem All Right Now, Wishing Well Fire and Water, Little Bit Of Love, crowd-pleaser The Hunter and Molten Gold, one of the first tracks Slesser and Kossoff played together with Back Street Crawler.

Frontman Terry Slesser sure knows how to captivate an audience. Aside from his amazing vocal ability (the reason Kossoff chose Terry to to front his band), he's got some seriously entertaining anecdotes in his armoury which are all delivered with style and panache.

This is a revealing insight into songwriting, recording and life on (and off!) the road.

Guitarist John Buckton has the Kossoff sound down to an absolute tee and that's no huge surprise when you consider that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said:..

"If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist."

Buckton, has captured the soul and rawness of Koss' playing.bPaul Kossoff had his own unique style and it lives on in John Bucktons' fretboard.

Also included in the line-up is powerhouse drummer Clive Edwards  formerly of UFO, Wild Horses (alongside Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson and Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain), Uli Jon Roth Band and the Pat Travers Band.

Keyboardist is Mark Taylor (ex Simple Minds, The Alarm, Elton John)  

The line up is completed with the inimitable John ‘Rhino’ Edwards (Status Quo ) on bass guitar .

Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his personality shone through his performances.

All of this is brought to life in a show of sheer quality which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist.
