TEMECULA, CA (CelebrityAccess) — Andy Fraser, one of the founding members of the British rock band Free, has died in California. He was 62 at the time of his death.
A native of London, Fraser had been living in Southern California in recent years. According to the Riverside County coroner, Fraser died on Monday morning but did not identify the cause of death, which remains under investigation.
Fraser is best known for his work on the bass with Free, where he helped to co-write their hit "All Right Now." He also performed with seminal groups from the period such as John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers.
While Fraser never quite found the same success that he did with Free, he remained a performing artist and prolific songwriter, penning hits for artists such as Robert Palmer, Joe Cocker, Chaka Khan, Rod Stewart and Paul Young. In 2005, he launched McTrax, which served as an outlet for his songwriting. – Staff Writers
