These anniversaries come around so quickly and with Andy Fraser (3 years gone - March 16th) and Koss (42 years tomorrow) March may well mark the beginning of the spring, but there's a sadness there with the reminder of our losses.
Play some music today. 'Time Away' is always an option but how about you celebrate both Fraser and Koss with 'Free Live!' and 'Mr Big'. A prime example of what can be done with a bit of volume and a LOT of talent.
"He (Kossoff) influenced so much of Rock guitar, even in the case of some people who didn't know it because they were getting the influence indirectly through other people who loved Kossoff. One example being Angus Young. I think he probably took the intensity of the vibrato, and of course made it his own thing - but I think he had to have gotten that from Kossoff.
He had such an uncanny unitisation of space and simplicity, and playing the right thing and leaving space for everybody else. The way they manoeuvred around each other and the call and response. I just always loved it."
