Simon Kirke is a founding member of not one, but two of the most legendary rock bands of his generation. In the brief period of four years, Free became one of the most important hard rock groups of the early Seventies and an influence on many other bands that followed. The group's best-known song is the ubiquitous "All Right Now", perhaps one of the most recognizable songs in the rock lexicon. Along with Free singer Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke went on to form Bad Company, and that group had a multi-platinum run from 1973 to 1982 that included classics like "Can't Get Enough", "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Shooting Star" and "Ready For Love". Simon joins us tonight to talk about the new Free DVD 'Free Forever', as well as the Bad Copany DVD "Hard Rock Live' and the Bad Company reunion!
