Hi my name is Renee.
I am not sure how to tell you this catastrophic story but my goal is to share everything I have learned so that we can help each other get through this or find some help and or support. Do you know anyone with Alzheimer’s disease? Do you have any ideas and suggestions that you would like to share? Please write me rschyjer@gmail.com with any comments, questions, ideas, and stories.
I married the love of my life. He was brilliant, a genius in fact, handsome, and so loving and giving, the sweetest person you could ever meet. He was an amazing songwriter, musician and singer. We would have conversation until the early hours of the morning and being together was heavenly.

After 35 years of loving each other and marriage, we got the horrible news that Rick had Alzheimer’s disease at age 60. But 60? It is such a young age 60. Men even have kids at 60, my dad did. People don’t retire until 65. Getting this news was the saddest day of my life.

IT’S NOT A RUMOUR VIDEO

Look how cute and cool Rick/Freddy is in this video and Al Galles…I love these guys. The song still holds up. I can listen to it over and over and it doesn’t get old. I know the video is grainy and sort of hard to see but it’s still reminds me of those wonderful days watching the band and singing along.

Love you Rick!!!!

Hi Everyone,

Last Thursday I skyped with the lovely Mike Stark of LA Radio Studio. It was so good to talk about Rick and reminisce about the good times actually the best times of our lives back when The Kats and The Nu Kats were playing live. here’s a link to the interview which is sooooooo cool because of the way he edited it with previous interviews that he did with Rick and we all get to hear his voice and his personality the way it used to be. Made me cry but it was so good to hear the “real” Rick. What I love about Mike is he is on team Freddy!

Here is the link to the interview:

the interview airs this Friday morning at 9am on KKJZ 88.1FM-HD3 and at http://www.22westmedia.com/.

Enjoy…there’s a lot of music in the interview and it’s wonderful to hear Rick talk about his music and his stories.

love,

Renee

Friends, family and fans of Rick “Freddy” Moore,

Shannon and I could not be more excited to announce the pre-order release of It’s Not a Rumour: A rock and roll journey through life and Alzheimer’s is available now at many online retailers!!!!!!

How to order:

To order a special stamped/signed copy, pre-order on our publisher Rare Bird’s site here.

Pre-order a regular hardcover book on Amazon here.

Pre-order a regular hardcover book on Powell’s Books here.

We could not be more grateful to everyone who contributed in the creation of this book. With his late-stage Alzheimer’s condition, he no longer realizes the impact of his life or his story, but Renee and I are certain he would have been so proud of how it came out. It is filled with all the adventures of his life, his heart, and chock full of memorabilia, photos, and of course, the most important thing – music.

Thank you to everyone who helped fill in stories where his memory lapsed. We hope you’ll be as proud of the end result as we are.

Please share this book with all your music-pop-culture loving friends. We appreciate you all.

Forever a Kat / Nu Kat,

Renee & Shannon
