Guitarist for the British rock band Free who was ranked #51 on the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list by Rolling Stone.
He studied classical guitar in childhood, but switched to electric by his teenage years.
Like with many of his peers, an overindulgence in drugs tragically cost him his life before he turned thirty.
He grew up around Hampstead, London.
Free played in the now legendary 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, alongside other rock greats like Jimi Hendrix.
