We revisit Stasheff's construction of a minimal Lie-Quillen model of a simply-connected closed manifold $M$ using the language of infinity-algebras. This model is then used to construct a graded Lie bracket on the equivariant homology of the free loop space of $M$ minus a point similar to the Chas-Sullivan string bracket.
