Okay, I finally asked Johnny about this while we were at lunch. One summer in Provincetown around 1990 we kept running into this young lad of about 17-18 who was keeping company with The Legendary Christine, worldclass faghag, and seahag, who worked selling dildos at Shop Therapy(!)
They were bingeing and stumbling all over town together that summer, and I remember it was the talk of the entire town that this was Freddie's son, or "son" - not sure which..Christine kept bringing up either that his father had died of AIDS, or was dying of AIDS, cant recall which one.
The boy also had some kind of arachnid nickname, like "spider ____" or "____ ant". Oh, the brain cells are straining on this one!
Anyone in Ptown remember this?
