Freddie Brown was born in Austin, Texas. He was raised up in two small central Texas towns of Lometa and Goldthwaite. Freddie's late mother Oma Cole had raised her children, Freddie, Joan, and Pat as a single parent. Freddie being the youngest and the only boy. Oma had first noticed Freddie's singing talent at The First Baptist Church in Lometa, where Freddie would sing with the choir on Sundays. Freddie would make believe an old broom was his guitar and pretend that he was Elvis Presley which Oma would get a kick out of. Oma decided to buy Freddie a Sears Truetone guitar when Freddie was thirteen. She bought the guitar from tips she had received while working as a waitress at Horn's Cafe in Lometa. Freddie tried playing the guitar, but got frustrated and put the guitar away in his closet for about six months. Freddie then met two friends who had guitars while he was attending school in Lometa. One friend was John Sanderson from Star, Texas and the other was Charles Stone from Lometa,Texas. Freddie, John. and Charles would practice playing guitars together and took some guitar lessons at a small music store in Lampasas,Texas. The three boys would go to an old closed down schoolhouse on weekends in Star,Texas and practice on a stage in the school's gym. They would have fun practicing and pretending they had a live audience. One Saturday night while they were practicing at the schoolhouse a boy by the name of Charlie Hopper from Goldthwaite, Texas stopped in to listen. He had heard the music coming from the old schoolhouse as he was cruising in his car. He asked Freddie if he would join his band by the name of "The Ultimate Expression" as a singer and a guitarist. Freddie told Charlie that he would join his band only if John and Charles could be in the band also. Charlie accepted the offer and from then on Freddie's life changed. Charlie's mother. Mrs. Hopper booked the band at private clubs and parties all over Texas. Later, the band members decided to move in different directions.
