Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Dear Rick,

Thanks for showing me that Fannin Street could actually be played by someone other than Leadbelly. I by no means have it down yet, but at least I now know its possible. Wish I could have moved to Toronto to get a couple lessons from ya.

I'll miss ya buddy, and rest assured that your legacy will be preserved here at the cat. Your place in history is secure at least as long as till I see you again. I'll try to get one of my kids to take over when I come up. Enjoy the all-you-can-eat buffet I heard about. Help them angels with their harps and lyres.

Oh, and not to be selfish, but could you do me a favor? A few years ago someone stole my guitar which was handed down to me after my uncle Frankie died in his prime. It was real special to me, nice classical jobby with a hand painted pick guard. We used to call it the magic guitar on account it was so easy to play. Could you see if you can talk the big guy into striking down the thief? Or maybe just a rash or some hydroids or something? Or better yet, could you have him bring it back to me? Thanks a bunch.

With great love and profound respect,
