Art Thieme Obit: Fred Geis (January, 2009) (22) RE: Fred Geis 09 May 11


Amazingly, that sounds like a completely different person than the Fred Geis that was in Chicago in the early sixties. I never had an inkling that he was Jewish. And I never heard him sing anything like K.Trio songs or even Strangest Dream. The Fred I knew was rather gamy and needed a bath. He definitely was not thin. As payment for sitting down and making tapes for me of his songs, he pretty much emptied my refrigerator into himself while standing in front of it. I still have the songs Fred sang into my tape recorder so many years ago.

Could be we're talking about two people who share the name Fred Geis?!
But I doubt it.
