- Matt Stocks
- ALL NIGHT NOW (Fire and Water, 1970) "This was first song that I heard by Free and it’s an amazing, timeless piece of rock‘n’roll; it’s got a definitive riff and an incredible vocal performance, and a bass line that everyone can sing.
- I’M A MOVER (Tons of Sobs, 1969) "The next song would have to be I’m a Mover, for the reason that when Danny [Bowes, Thunder singer] and I started our first band at school we used to cover it.
- COME TOGETHER IN THE MORNING (Heartbreaker, 1973) "This is a beautiful, heart-rending ballad. It was written about [Paul] Kossoff when he wasn’t very well.
- MY BROTHER JAKE (Highway, 1970) "This is another song that I think [Paul] Rodgers wrote about Kossoff when he wasn’t very well. It’s a very unusual song, once you get inside the bones of it and work out how it’s all put together.
