Thread Name: Rick Fielding's influence
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's influence
I've met Rick - face to face and here at the 'cat. I don't think I can claim him as "friend" - in anything other then a "we know each other and aren't antagonistic" manner - but wow, has he had an influence on my life.

Some is direct - because his posting are ALWAYS worth reading - much is indirect - as he has had such an influence over so many people I respect and admire.

And the respect and admiration he draws from people is in itself a lesson in living and how to present oneself to the world.

And just watching him practice for one of the mini concerts at a Getaway weekend was an incredible experience.
