Music, Mayhem, and the Mouse

An autobiography by Stan Freese, with Scott Wolf

With permission from his boss at Disney, Stan often appeared on the rural comedy TV series, “Hee Haw., playing the tuba and singing his own compositions. Seen above, Stan appeared singing a song he wrote about Nashville burlesque club, Skull’s Rainbow Room. This is just one of the stories that will be in “Music, Mayhem, and Mouse.”

Almost a decade ago I interviewed Stan Freese for Mouse Clubhouse. At the time, Stan was the director of talent booking for Disneyland.  He shared fascinating stories about his time at Disney, starting as the first leader of the Walt Disney World Band in 1971, but Stan was also telling me stories that were not appropriate for my squeaky-clean Disney-themed site.  When I told Stan the stories would not be right for Mouse Clubhouse, he said, “We’ll publish them when I retire!”

Stan is now retired and he asked me to help him write his story!  His very colorful life will be detailed in the upcoming Stan Freese autobiography, “Music, Mayhem, and the Mouse.”
