The New Year has started off with a bang. I had a rare Friday night off, so I decided to go to Yoshi’s in Oakland to see Tower Of Power with my partner in crime Tony Lindsay (lead singer for Carlos Santana). Emilio Castillo and Larry Braggs invited Tony and I to sing What Is Hip? with the band. What fun we had when Tony, Larry, and I on stage at the same time, singing, dancing, and laughing…way cool, great way to spend the night off. After 44 years Tower Of Power is still smoking. Saturday night at the Starlight Room was off the chain, very enthusiastic crowd, and the band was slammin. Sunday, my wonderful wife Rebecca who love’s to cook, so we entertained dear friends from Las Vegas..yet another great time hanging with them in our home. So I’m already having a great week…please do the same. Blessings–Fred Ross.
