11/14/40-5/19/06 Yes, another (minor) icon of my youth passed away. Apparently he died on May 19th of this year, though I've seen nothing in the local papers about it. For those
who don't know, he was the leader of Freddie & the Dreamers, one of the British Invasion bands of the mid 60s. Biggest hit here was probably "I'm Telling You Now", and he was also known for his goofy dance "The Freddie".
So come on everbody...one last time...DO THE FREDDIE!!
