“Whispering Bob gave ‘Free’ one of our first breaks on a TV show he hosted called The Old Grey Whistle Test. For the past 50 years he has constantly supported music and musicians both experienced and up and coming. I am absolutely happy to lend my voice to this iconic hit song and to help Bob support ‘Help Musicians’ a UK Charity.” -Paul Rodgers
