    I have a huge connection with Paul as a player, I haven't heard of him till the last two years but his still of soloing is so close to mine he's just one of my favorite players and I love hearing/seeing Paul he is an amazing player.

    Kossoff is THE MAN. He is definitely one of my favorite players.

    Koss is the master of pure tone IMO. The vids above are great but they sound so much better on DVD.

    "Free Forever" is a really good DVD.

    I'll get some screen shots up later when I get the time.

    These are all screen-shots from "Free Forever". Now go buy it!

    "Beat Club, Germany, 1970" (Both the darkburst and stripped burst feature here, but they've smothered the footage with psychadelic effects, so its hard to get any good pics.

    Look between and above the pickups, some beautiful subtle flame:

    Simon Kirke's funky boots:

    Definately not a plain top! Koss flashes his flame:

    (Sadly that's the best pic I could get that shows the flame)

    Stripped on Top of the Pops (I think)

    This shot kind of shows the carve (I think thats what it's called)...Does it look weird to you? As funky as Simon Kirke's boots?

    If you look closely just to the right of Paul's knob(!), you can kind of see a reflection. Some other shots also make the top look real shiny - almost gold in places. So has been re-nitroed or something after the stripping?
