Yes, I said it. Freddy Fender is one of my top 3 favorite artists ever.
The grandad of Tex-Mex music. The man is in the country music hall of fame on several counts.
Toward the end, he recorded a lot with his very good friend Flaco Jimenez
I don't drink anymore, but my dear friends, the man practically invented 'beer drinkin music'.
The former marine has been almost like family to me. I grew up listening to Freddy both in english and in spanish language. I swear he looks, sounds and acts just like one of my uncles.
ok, just thought I'd share.
