Free's bass player/songwriter ANDY FRASER has died at the age of just 62.  This is a nice piece by Jim Farber from: www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/music/free-rocker-andy-fraser-dead-62-...     In the years between, that song became the gift-that-keeps-on-giving (All Right Now), generating millions of dollars for its authors. It was a No. 1 hit in over 20 countries and was recognized by ASCAP in 1990 for over 1 million radio plays in the U.S. alone. By Oct. of 2006, it passed the 3 million mark in plays in the U.K.

JOE MATERA Continues Guitar Legacy with 'Louder Than Words'

  LOUDER THAN WORDS - JOE MATERA   Press Release: For Australian rocker Joe Matera, 'Louder Than Words', makes it clear from the outset that he has moved on both musically and lyrically. Words have now gathered and drifted in top position on half of the songs, now carrying darker, headier themes that seem fittingly in sync with the times we find ourselves living through. Take Joe's brief and precocious opener, 'Intro 1 V'. Just a morsel, really, but one that offers hints of Nine Inch Nails and elements of Germanic angst. Not a strain that has featured too heavily in Joe's previous outings. The darkness floods through the preceding single and title song.
