Jimi Jamison & Fergie Fredriksen at Morty's Bar & Grill
(featuring Heartbreaker)
Glyndon, Minnesota
September 11, 2010

I will admit that I don't ordinarily worry too much about taking pics of anybody but Jimi when I go to shows, but in this case, I felt obliged to get a good record of the whole event. This is partly because every Jimi fan in the world owes Fergie an enormous debt of gratitude--it was one of the benefit shows he does every year to raise money for hepatitis C awareness and research that convinced Jimi and Jim Peterik to start working together again, and without that, Crossroads Moment would probably never even have been thought of, much less made. But there is another, much sadder reason, as well: Fergie was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer earlier this summer, and heaven alone knows how many more times he'll be up to performing. Not to say that he didn't do a terrific job that night--I don't have any prior experience for comparison, of course, but to me he didn't seem particularly handicapped either physically or vocally any of the time he was onstage. Even so, though, there was still a sense of fragility about him that just made my heart hurt to see, and I hope everyone who stops to take in these pics will join me in keeping him and all his friends and family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. vigil emoticon

Edited June 2012 to add: Looks like I was a touch too pessimistic in my judgment--Fergie is doing great now from what I hear, and he even has a new CD out. (Which just happens to be awesome, by the way; I heartily recommend picking up a copy!)
