FREDDIE FINGERS LEE......
What happened to one-eyed Fred? This is what Paul Barrett told us : "It is sad news indeed but Freddie 'Fingers' Lee has had another stroke. He had to advise me to cancel all his bookings for the foreseeable future. This is a day I hoped never to see, but Fred has hung up his rock' n' roll shoes. We
can only hope he will be able to put them on again some day".

Dave & Deke Reunion!!!
Deke announced during his set at VLV that Dave and Deke are committed to play VLV and Green Bay next year!!! This is not a hoax, not an imaginary story, its true! And according to a friend of Dave S, the two shows will be slightly different, Lance will handle the bass duties at one show, and Shorty will do the other. The reunion is a one-time deal, well two time actually but that's it!
Thanks, Larry Shell for the information!

JACK BACK TO BELGIUM???
Some real good sources informed me that Belgium's best double bass player, Jack Fire, is considering a steady return to Belgium !!! After six years of living in California and a year in Canada, after sharing stages with Ronnie Dawson, Joe Clay, Slim Jim Phantom and many others, we can only celebrate his return (to be confirmed!!)
So, all top-musicians of Europe, if you tour a lot, and you want this excellent bass player to tour with you, don't hesitate to contact him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (hihi, Jack : Chuck is willing to cooperate on any project!)
