Video – Freddy Fender – Before the Next Teardrop Falls


Thanks to Deb for sending this too me – another video from when I played with Freddy Fender (I’m the keyboardist on the right). Before The Next Teardrop Falls is often unwittingly called “Before The LAST Teardrop Falls” and Freddy Fender is often spelled as “Freddie Fender”, as they are in this video title. My best guess is this video is from Laughlin, Nevada sometime between 2003-2004, probably 2004.

I absolutely loved playing this song with Freddy. The crowd would get so nostalgic and everyone hugging their loved ones, it was always a great moment in the show.

Here are some of the comments people had posted about this video of Freddy Fender performance:
Thanks Freddie for the best womans drinking pity party song ever!!!!!Had many of them to this song,you were so much a part of my high school life and there after.Love you Dear Freddie,RIP

saw him at the palomino club in north hollywood…he just got out of prison,and people were lined up outside waiting to see him sing,in 1975….i am glad i was there
Does anyone have his recording/video of “Eres tu”?
RIP, dear Freddie! You were a true CLASSIC! Your songs came into my life when My husband of 20 years left me for another and then I got involved with another…and I am still crying…for my first. Hurts whrn I hear these great songs! Luv you and miss you.

WOOT!!!!! Love this so much!

That’s a great love song for one thing the song extend to the person we love but not able to marry. For true love endure forever -it’s like eternal.. love you freddy
