Three years in the making. I started this project during the Free Spirit tour back in 2018, and then during the Bad Company reunion tour in 2019. My friend Charlie Daughtry was the official Kossoff Burst photographer during the 2019 reunion. His photos were perfect as usual. Here is the smaller online article that proceeds the upcoming Guitar magazine article in a couple of weeks.

Great article, and it's so cool that you got the guitar back in the hands of Paul Kossoff's friends! It sounds like it meant a lot to them. :yah

Thanks again for sharing Kris, still one of the coolest old LP to me.
Looks fantastic in the photos, and it's nice to get some insights of the emotional stories behind it from Paul & Simon.

Kris, what I find so admirable is how much fun and sheer joy you get out of owning and sharing these (your) guitars.

Absolutely top class geezer, superb custodian.

Well bloody played Pal.
