They were Bad Company before they named the band Bad Company!

I know Paul Rodgers fronted both bands, and was still performing not long ago, but do you mean the band members of Free became Bad Company, or what do you mean? :D

Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke (drummer) were in both bands.

"Woman" is a terrific riff, with laid back funk-blues feel. Three Dog Night did a really cool version of it.

Back in 1971, I was 14 y.o. and was already tuning in to Pittsburgh's f.m. rock station, WDVE.

I heard Free for the first time, saved up all my change and bought
every Free 45 I could get.

Hearing "All Right Now" in '71 was a much different experience than after it was #1 on the "most overplayed song" list. :D

My favorite memory of that song was hearing Wolfman Jack playing it on XERB, when my folks took us camping in the Eastern Oregon desert.

Free influenced AC/DC, and Paul Kossoff influenced Angus Young (and other guitar players), and if you check out some early AC/DC tracks -- live as well as recordings -- you'll hear some Kossoff in Angus's playing, and Free influence in their earliest songs.

Sounds like a great time!

Music can be, in a sense, immortal.
