Andy-Fraser

At just 15 years old in 1968, Andy Fraser made history when he became the founding member and base player for the rock band Free. With a career lasting over an astonishing 40 years, Fraser and the band rocked the world with mega hits including “All Right Now” and “The Stealer”.

First training as a classical pianist until the age of 12, Fraser spent his adult life on the road playing the guitar and living the rock star life. By the early 2000s, Fraser revealed that he had been battling HIV since the 1990s as well as Kaposi’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Disappearing from the spotlight between 1994 and 2005, Fraser made his final return as part of the new Free album titled Naked and Finally Free. Sadly, Fraser lost his battle with AIDS and cancer in March 2015.
