About

October Freddy Fender was truly a music icon, one of the most recognized and beloved music legends ever to hit radio waves. He was one of the few Hispanic stars in country music, a singer and songwriter whose work was defined mostly by its strong Latin sensibility. Sadly, he died on October 14,at 69 of lung cancer at his home in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Description

Freddy boy

Baldemar Huerta—better known as Freddy Fender—has been a major figure in Texas music since the fifties. First he was a rock and roller in his hometown of San Benito, then a country star, then a singer in the Tex-Mex supergroup the Texas Tornados; about the only constant in his career has been his inimitable high tenor.

Although kidney dialysis has kept the year-old mostly confined to his Corpus Christi home in recent months, he will play a concert at the Valley Race Park in Harlingen on December 8 to benefit the local Freddy Fender Scholarship Fund. Did anyone in the Valley give you hell for being a Hispanic rock and roller back in the fifties, when you were El Bebop Kid?

The only ones who gave me a hard time were some Mexican American musicians who resented the fact that I was not doing Mexican American music. I was so cool, you know? What do you think about Texas music right now?

Freddy fender nickname(s):

In general, Texas musicians have wonderful taste in roots music—good, down-to-earth stuff about hot weather and a bottle of wine. That goes for rhythm and blues, country, and folk. Tejano has the same fiber as the music that I heard in the forties and fifties, when I was a young man, though it has been modernized. It has developed a cumbia beat.

Tejano will remain the same until a big star changes it. We have seen several incarnations of Freddy Fender.

Do you expect to take another direction anytime soon? Oh, I have already. It will knock you out of your socks.
