Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
I met Rick a couple of times at the Getaway, but mostly I admired him from afar. He was a wonderful musician, but more than that he was a wonderful man - the kind of guy one could aspire to be.
One of the time I met him I was suffering from a migraine. I mentioned it to him, and he commiserated with me that he also suffered from migraines. It seemed that just talking about it for a couple minutes helped quite a bit. In retrospect, I don't know if he actually suffered from migraines - thought I think he did - but he was the kind of person who might have said he did if he thought it would help.
Rick is admired, he is missed, he is remembered.
