Freddy Fender

"You don't see Freddy Fender or any of those guys trying to play against R.E.M. or U2 or groups like that, because we do our own thing. We know what we're good at. Some of the stuff I do in my show is 30 or 40 years old. You know, rock 'n' roll or rhythm & blues. But nobody can play it like I can, even if they tried. It's too simple for them. When I play a solo on the guitar, I hit maybe 20 notes in my whole solo, whereas a young guitar player from now would probably hit about 100. And what I say is, 'Well, I hit mine already; I done found it. He's still looking for his.' " -- Freddy Fender, Tex-Mex country legend.
