Andy Fraser, 62, the bassist for British blues-rock band Free who cowrote its mammoth 1970 anthem "All Right Now," died Monday in Temecula, Calif., where he lived.
The Riverside County coroner's office announced his death on its website, saying the cause had not been determined. In recent years, after coming out as gay, Mr. Fraser talked about having AIDS and the HIV-related cancer Kaposi's sarcoma.
Mr. Fraser was a teenager playing bass in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers when he helped form Free in 1968 with vocalist Paul Rodgers, guitarist Paul Kossoff, and drummer Simon Kirke. Mr. Fraser and Rodgers collaborated on writing songs for the band.
