It's way too soon for such a vibrant, wonderful singer and man like Freddy Fender to leave us. I will say that I'm a lucky person to have been able to enjoy many a Fender concert and CD over the years... whether it was the Texas Tornadoes, Los Super Seven or just Freddy solo...
He was the best... I went to see the Tornadoes mainly to see Freddy... No voice like his... and the great tejano(?) and Mex-rock & roll music...
When Roy Orbison passed Freddy took up much of the slack. Lucky for me, Freddy played often in Northern Calif, where I reside so I got to hear him maybe 20 times over the years... never missed a local gig...
And, don't for get that sense of humour of Freddy's.. one funny guy, yet he had a very serious side. He cared...
We lost Doug Sahm and Gene Pitney recently --and so many others ... the Voices of our youth...
now Freddy... It's a sad day but we won't forget you Freddy... I plan to do a tribute on my site ....and look to share your legend with others...
