Happy Valentine's Day.
What better day than today to launch a new series for this blog, "Love Letters to Fred." We often receive notes of praise and funky testimonies from fans that are so lovely they deserve a larger audience. So, send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post them.
Why do you love Fred? Are you a young trombonist or other musician who has been inspired by him? Are there one or more of his songs, perhaps with James Brown or P-Funk, that played an important role in your personal history? Have you had the chance to meet him and learn firsthand that he's a legendary great guy in addition to being a legendary artist? Let us know. Thanks.
