    Default Funny Fender Story - Wrong Fender

    Most of you know I played for several years with Freddy Fender. About three years ago at a gig this kid comes up to me all excited because he wanted to meet Freddy Fender. He asked me if I could introduce them...I mean this kid was literally frothing at the mouth he was so excited. I said, "Sure".

    Then he says "Wow, you KNOW Freddy? That's so cool. I mean...he STARTED rock n roll when he invented the Fender guitar".

    When I told him Freddy didn't invent the guitar he didn't believe me. Finally after I convinced him...his whole body shrunk down and he slowly walked away into an abandoned field. Kind of surreal.

    I single handedly destroyed this kid, his vision, and his perception of the world.

    Default Funny Fender Story - Wrong Fender

    Ya know, when people see the Fender logo on my guitars I'm often asked something like "doesn't Freddy Fender own that company?" I bet he gets kids, and adults, asking that alot. But it gave Cyber a chance to crush a brat so its not a bad thing. Piano players, no wonder chicks don't dig them.

    No way man, I 'm pretty sure it's Don Gibson's.
    Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!
