Freddy Moore Art
His peers around the studio would always ask for one of Fred’s “Freddie Moore Girls” drawings and seek draftsmanship advice. Ollie Johnston (One of Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men) kept a pencil of Fred’s taped to his window.
In the 1995 Frank & Ollie documentary Ollie said he kept it there to, “remind me of how great the guy was and how much he meant to me”.
He had a natural talent and was envied in the studio. He is best known for redesigning Mickey Mouse and gave the mouse that extra appeal.

Freddie Moore, a jazz drummer whose career spanned seven decades, died on Tuesday at his home in the Bronx. He was 92 years old
Mr. Moore, whose career began when he was a teenager in traveling minstrel shows, performed with such jazzmen as Sidney Bechet, King Oliver, Art Hodes, Eubie Blake, Bob Wilber, and Roy Eldridge.
He played drums with a strong, steady beat, accented with sudden cannonlike shots and deliberately placed cymbal accents. For “Tiger Rag” he sometimes blew on his snare drum to create a kittenish “tiger roar.”
Drumming with one hand while he held a microphone in the other, he sang in a leathery, rhythmic shout while he agitated his face with exaggerated grimaces.
When he became physically unable to continue drumming a few years ago, Mr. Moore kept on singing and strumming a washboard with Bob Cantwell’s band at the Red Blazer Too on West 46th Street in Manhattan.
He officially retired last March but made one more appearance, his last, on his 92d birthday in August, once again playing at the club with the Cantwell band.

Freddy Moore Get Modern
The Kats – “Get Modern” is an album by The Kats that was recorded at Shelter Studios, Hollywood, in 1979. The album was produced and engineered by Noah Shark and Max Reese.
It was intended for release on Infinity Records, but the label went out of business before the album could be released. It became known as The Great Lost Kats Album before it was released by General Records.
Freddy Moore Hollywood Days
In 1976, after national touring and recording experience at three Minneapolis studios, Moore decided to head to Los Angeles along with his wife and the rest of the band.
While undergoing some personnel changes, the band changed their name to The Kats, and Moore invented a new on-stage persona for the act—a cat named Freddy. Moore took his on-stage persona very seriously and often pantomimed being a cat. Eventually, Moore adopted the name “Freddy Moore” as his professional moniker.
The Kats signed a recording contract with Infinity Records in 1979 and recorded an album with Tom Petty’s production team.
However, just as final mixes were being completed Infinity Records was dissolved by its parent company MCA Records. The album was never released, and the master tapes remain locked in the Shelter Studios vault.
Also in 1979, Moore “then 29” met the 16-year-old Demetria “Demi” Guynes at a nightclub. Almost immediately, despite Moore’s existing marriage, the two became a couple.
The two moved in together while Guynes was still 16, and married a few months later in February after Moore’s divorce from Lucy was finalized and Guynes was 17. Demi Guynes became Demi Moore, and she continues to use that name.
Meanwhile, Moore’s music career continued. Shortly after Infinity Records went under, lead guitarist Pete McRae departed The Kats, and the four remaining band members renamed themselves The Nu-Kats. They also promptly fired their management and signed with Rhino Records.
In 1980, the Nu-Kats recorded the EP Plastic Facts, featuring the track “It’s Not A Rumour”, which was written by Freddy and Demi Moore.
Demi Moore—not yet a star—also had a prominent role in the song’s video. “It’s Not A Rumour” never charted, but the video would receive occasional play on MTV, especially once Demi Moore became a well-known figure after her appearances on General Hospital starting in 1982.
The Nu Kats dissolved in 1981. Moore briefly moved to the Upper West Side of Manhattan and joined local NYC band The Dates, who never recorded.
After an illness in the family brought him back to Los Angeles, Moore remained in LA and formed a new pop-influenced band called Boy.
Boy released an EP on Radioactive Records and Freddy received a Screen Actors Guild/AFTRA card while portraying the small role of ‘Arn’ in the 1982 film Parasite, a 3-D movie which starred his wife Demi. The music of Boy can be heard on the soundtrack.
Boy disbanded in 1983. Moore and his brother Bobby continued writing, arranging and recording new material for approximately another year. They played a few industry showcases under the name BFM (Bobbyzio and Freddy Moore).
Demi Moore filed for divorce from Moore in September 1984; the divorce became final in 1985. Of her, Freddy would later state, “I’ve never met a woman with a more obsessive need to be liked and loved”.
Freddy Moore quit the music business at around this time, although after a long layoff from performing, in 1997 he and several ex-bandmates began recording and self-releasing CDs of new material under the name The Kat Club.
