|Blues guitarist, Denny Freeman, may have missed a
good bet. No, Freeman was not a gambler per say, but he may have missed
out on fame and fortune, because of one thing that he did not want.
In Texas, there were a several notable guitarist during
the 1970's. Among the more notable, were Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Freeman played much of his musical career, "twenty feet from stardom", as
they say. Freeman and Stevie Ray were the two guitarists for the popular
Texas band, Paul Ray & the Cobras. Freeman went on to play in Lou Ann
Barton's band and later became a member of Angela Strehli's band.
After moving to Austin, Texas, Freeman became recognized and well
respected by his peers, including both Vaughan brothers. However, respect
and recognition, from his peers and the likes of the Vaughn brothers, did
not help Freeman with the traction needed to record on major labels. At
the time, Austin musicians had the attention of major recording studios.
This was impart due to Jimmie Vaughn's success with his band, the Fabulous
Thunderbirds, and Stevie Ray's Double Trouble band.
So, what is it that keeps a man just short of the
success and fame, enjoyed by similar artists, in a similar genera?
Well, according to Robert Santelli, in his Big
Book of Blues, page 167, Denny Freeman made a choice. A choice which
may have been the only reason he was overlooked by the record companies.
Denny Freeman chose not to be a singer. This decision may have weighed in
as a deciding factor by recording companies, when compared to the
success of the Vaughn brother's.

On Metaphysical Strength
The MORE powerful you are, the more
ability you have to materialize your wants. One's metaphysical strength is
like a bank balance. It represents the time lag between what you conceive
for your life in your mind and when it actually appears. Wimpy people
imagine forever and nothing ever shows up. For the less wimpy variety
their thoughts show up in various forms but less than they had hoped for.
In the strong ones, event show up more or less immediately. The sage can
materialize the burning bush in the flick of a thought form; most others
would have a difficulty materializing a box of matches over six months.
