    Rapillo, Alfred “Fast Freddy”

    Guitarist who performed with Rick James and Spyro Gyra in the mid-to-late ‘70s and appeared on the albums, Spyro Gyra and Bottom Line NY, 1978.  In the 1980s, he went through a midlife crisis of sorts—at least, he was a member of Midlife Crisis, an L.A.-based cover band that entertained at concert halls and dance clubs.  The group was featured on the America Swings radio show in 2004 and an ABC 7 TV special.  He also gave guitar lessons to Married With Children alumnus Shane Sweet.  In 2009, he appeared in the straight-to-video horror film, Kelton’s Dark Corner:  Trilogy One.
