Freddie is awesome. i saw him at the Great American Music Hall with none other than Steve Kimock. He sat in on 2-3 songs and it was really cool! He was living in SF at one point, I think he still lives in the Bay Area somewhere. His building caught on fire. He madei t outside with his steel, and went back in for anything else he could get his hands on and someone stole it off the sidewalk. Talk about kicking someone when their down!
