Freddie and the Dreamers

Allow me to interrupt this tour recap with a little un-related story. It appears one Mr. David Nelson took offense to my recent report on the David and Banana show at the Iron Springs in which I made reference to David's performance of "Oh, The Dreadful Wind and Rain" - I said he had upped the tempo and was rocking out (which was strange, considering the song) and bobbing his head as if he was doing "The Freddy." I even ended the post with "I'm telling you now..."

Imagine my surprise when a very confused David asked why I compared him to Freddy Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street. What the f**k!!!! Anyway, that spurred me to search you tube and look what I found:

And yes, David's head was bobbing from side to side just like that!

Well, Katrinka, you and I are signifcantly younger than the elderly Mr. Nelson ((recently, I discovered a box of stuff from my 8th grade graduation and was astounded to learn that I graduated from 8th grade on Nelson's 20th birthday) (tee hee) and, speaking for myself, I know I qualified as a teenybopper back then so of course, I remember Freddie and the Dreamers.
