Thread Name: Rick Fielding and his music remembered
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding and his music remembered
I do recall the banjo tale but I don't.......I'll see if I can dig it up but I'll bet maybe Steve does know.

On the other hand, I DO have one of his straps which he made for me while I was in the hospital in '99. I got two things from Rick during that particular hospital stay. One was this beautiful strap and the other? Well, Rick tended to take all of his troubles and joys to music and so to put his mind elsewhere, he worked hard on completing a little rag he'd been working on, naming it "Catspaw's Rag" and putting it on his next album. This either made him a fool or a really good friend.......and no one ever mistook Rick for a fool.
