So many great memories have gone thru my mind today. Fergie was a true gentleman in a crazy biz. Always treating people kindly and with respect.
I am also very glad that he was able to come back thru some crazy years with a nasty cancer illness, and still make two albums more for us, the fans.
I found that my interest for music simply died after Fergies passing, but life goes on, and a few years later I have my interest back, thanx to Fergies music, Totos XIV and much more. Music is still very much alive! Even if the biz have changed completely for hard working bands out there. Touring is now more or less the only thing that produces money for musicians today. It is sad, but true. We made it that way, by downloading music in stead of buying and supporting the bands.
Anyway, today I will listen to Fergies music, and think of happy memories!
Take care folks.
There is a new support page of Jimi Jamison and Fergie Frederiksen, set up by Patrick Palmer, support it here on Facebook:
Musically, and personally, the time after my dear friend Fergie Frederiksen passed away, have been very tough. Not only did he have his struggles, and faded away from them, but we also fought the cancer monster in my close family. My sister in-Law lost her fight too, just 42 years old. These things are just not fair, and there will never be an explanation as to why the world has to be so cruel at times!
During this time, I just have not had the energy or anything to keep this website updated, I felt, what would be the point? Anyway, I’m not saying the will be plenty of updates from here, but Things are in the making. Not only will Toto release their new album XIV in March, which is an excellent album, but Escape Music is also releasing a New Radioactive album in April. F4our is the name of the album, and it has Fergie on vocals on two new songs.
“Back to the game”, and “Just a man” are the two new songs with Fergie. The album also has two new songs of the late, and good friend of Fergie, Jimi Jamison, amongst others.
Read about the album here, and watch the promo as well, you can hear a glimpse of the two Fergie songs:
So, maybe it is time for the world to get back to it’s feet again? I don’t know, but I AM looking forward to hearing new music again from my friend Fergie, hope you folks will too!
Take care folks, and stay strong!
It is with a very heavy heart I tell you that my sweet soulbrother Fergie Frederiksen passed away today January 18.
Fergie has been a true Champ, and a fighter, and for this he got several years extra with us, and actually a couple of extra albums that will be of great joy for fans all over the world for many more years to come.
Now, this has been a Journey for me as well. I started the unofficial Fergie Frederiksen website in the mid 90s, and by the end of the 90s me and Fergie agreed to make it his official website. It has been a joyride, of ups and downs (healthwise), musically only ups! I have loved it all along, to work with Fergie, he has been such a true and good friend to me. Last summer I went to Sweden for a couple of days to hang with him, and he really made my day when he dedicated the Toto song Endless (my all time favourite Toto song!) on stage. Magical for me!
So what now?
Well, we should all celebrate Fergies life and music, the way he impacted us all in such a great way is just start-touching for many of us!
If you still want to donate and contribute to Fergies Family, you can do so. Money now will be spent for his funeral and the costs around this and some events. Go here to donate:
