reporting Paul Rodgers says that the band contemplated reforming later this year.
In a new interview with Classic Rock Magazine Paul Rodgers reveals that Free came close to reforming for a special one-off show this year.
Rodgers says: "There was talk of possibly something connected with the Olympics, but I don’t see it coming together now.
"One of the things that is difficult in my mind is that Paul was the soul of the band in many respects, and I hesitate to mess with that.
"If I was going to even think about it, it would mean getting someone who had a really great feel for that particular way in which Paul Kossoff played. The person I think comes closest is Peter Bullick from Debbie Bonham’s band.
"But as I said, there are no actual plans just now.”
