Brief Note for Wednesday September 12th, 2012
Sorry for the lack of updates.
Yesterday, my wife Rhonda and I were stunned to hear of the passing of a friend of ours, just 44 years old.
We don't know the full details, but Freddy Crapotta was a very talented guitar player, also a guy that pretty much didn't open up too much, but he loved music.
He introduced me to Rhonda, 'I know this girl who's a rockin' keyboard player, she jams like Jon Lord (RIP)!'
RIP Freddy Crapotta - 1968 - 2012
Freddy opened his own music bar / club, appropriately called 'Freddy's Bar,' on the East Side of Detroit in recent years and got some good local celebrities playing in there, including Jim McCarty (Mitch Ryder, Cactus, The Rockets) and others.
Freddy, we're going to miss you .
Thoughts, prayers and sincere sympathies go out to your Mom, Dad and brother Steve.
