Thread Name: Rick Fielding's influence
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's influence
I was just a kid, fresh off the farm in 68 when I first felt his influence.To a hayseed from the wilds of North Ontario, he seemed so "big city hip" and musically I knew I had met my mentor.
He even arranged my first gig on Young St. (Steels Tavern)
Through out the years we remained close and he never hesitated to share his gift and knowledge with me.
Even after my battle with the bottle,he was there to help me pick up the pieces and try again.
We havent always agreed on everything, but musically he's still my mentor, emotionally, my big brother and best of all, I'm proud to call him friend.
