It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since my musical mentor and brother, Fred, passed away after his valiant effort against the dreaded cancer that took his life but not his infectious spirit. This date, August 8th, will forever be remembered on this blog for the insidious memory that it now holds. However, I would also like to take this time to reflect on the wonderful memories he left on my life.
From our earliest sojourns to various iconic clubs as L’Amour (in Brooklyn) and the famed Studio 1 (Newark, NJ) to stadiums like for RockStar Mayhem (PA) and Metallica (Giants Stadium), I have plenty of vivid memories of shows and interacting with local legends. Also fondest of my memories were plenty of baseball games at the old Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium…never a dull day when my brother was involved! His infectious smile and outgoing demeanor were enough to make anyone optimistic and enjoy his presence.
On this first anniversary without him, I am reminded that all time on this planet is short…we should be thankful that the Powers-That-Be put us here and to love our fellow human beings, something my brother deeply believed in…although there were times when he questioned the intelligence of our species!
