"Freddie" dies

This really hits home for me.

Freddie Garrity, lead singer for the '60s pop group Freddie and the Dreamers , has died at the age of 69.

As a kid growing up in the '60s, I listened to this group a lot on the old WLS and WCFL in Chicago. My very first "45" was "Tell Her No" by The Zombies and my second "45" was "I'm Telling You Now" by Freddie and the Dreamers. My first LP was "You Really Got Me" by The Kinks.

It's tough knowing these artists are passing on.
