R.I.P. Freddy Hubbard
 
What a loss. Freddy Hubbard passed away 12/29/08, one month after suffering a heart attack.
He'd been in the hospital since the attack the day before Thanksgiving. He was 70.

Freddy was one of a kind. Thankfully for us there's plenty of his music to remember him by.

He'll be missed.

There's a couple of threads in the General Discussion section Derek on Freddie you may want to check out. One with a whole slew of links to many of his musical contributions throughout his amazing career with many of the drum greats.

Thanks Stan. I've been away from the forum for quite some time; wasn't aware I was repeating a thread that already existed.
I'll go and visit those...

If you have any links to any cool Freddie vids we missed post them in Matt's thread about the drum greats he played with Derek.

Another HUGE talent gone...
