Free deserve to be inducted. "All Right Now" is one of the greatest classic rock songs ever. It's one of those timeless songs that will always sound fresh.

3 words: "All Right Now"

"Mr. Big" from "Fire And Water". Wow! What interplay between bassist and lead guitarist. Kossoff's guitar solo's and Kirk's bass runs are so full of feeling. One of Free's greatest songs.

Theres a video on Youtube of Free playing Mr. Big. You have to see it. The Kirk bass solo and the Kossoff guitar solo rival anything that Clapton and Bruce did with Cream.

Good to see future rock legends giving Free a 30% induction chance

Really underrated are Free. Most people in America only know them for "All Right Now", but they had some other great songs. They might even be more influencial than Bad Company seeing as they have been covered much more.

I'm sure they are more influential than Bad Company just because they were around first (and Bad Co. actually weren't all that influential, though they had some good music.) I have heard that at their peak they were one of my native Britain's most respected blues-rock bands, and apparently Paul Kossoff was being talked about in the same breath as Clapton, Peter Green and Jeff Beck (I read in a magazine article somewhere that Clapton really respected him.) I'm not sure whether they have the credentials to get in, but they had some damn good music for sure, and I certainly wouldn't try to stop their induction (though I won't try and make it happen either.)

Dennis DeYoung of Styx has replaced Paul Rogers of Free and Bad Company as the lead singer for Queen.

Should they get in? Maybe. Will they? No. Damn good group? Yes. I got the "All Right Now" compilation for Christmas, and there's some really great stuff in there besides that song. "Fire and Water" might be my favorite.

See now that Paul Rogers was in this band too. Got their greatest hits album, listened & loved it & I was thinking (before I knew about Paul): "These guys have alot of songs that sound sorta like Bad Company. I bet if they had merged with that band & been 'Free Company', they'd be in the Hall".

Free should be inducted. All Right Now & Fire & Water are classic songs. These guys were rock n roll. Nowadays all this watered down rock turns to mindless pop & gets inducted. Paul Rodgers is one of the biggest snubs. Most critics & magazines would list him as one of rock's greatest vocalists. Free is one of those groups that if you dig through their catalogue of songs you become more & more impressed. Love Paul's guitar work too. KING
