JAVIDAN: Fereydoon Farrokhzad (1935-1992)
by Darius Kadivar

Fereydoon Farrokhzad, a poet, a singer, opposition figure and much more... He was a great entertainer and trained many great Persian singers currently living in LA.Before the Islamic Revolution he had a very popular live show on Iranian TV called "Mikhake Noghrei" which was widely seen by Iranian people.Known by his supporters to be an educated patriot who spoke out against the Islamic Republic of Iran. Farrokzad was always present during many demonstrations and always spoke out loud and clear against the Islamic Regime and Mullahs. A Constitutional Monarchist to the Very End, he supported it's Restoration and the Crown Prince of the Pahlavi Dynasty as Legitimate Heir to the Peacock Throne. An Outspokenness that he expressed with a genuine conviction that irritated the Clerical regime in Tehran and ultimately cost him his life.

On 8th August 1992 in Bonn, Germany he was stabbed and beheaded with a knife by Islamic regime agents. killers fled thanks their counterparts in Germany`s police and government. He was living in exile since the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Indeed Fereydoon Farrokhzad was a great artist.  I love many of his songs.  As a very young girl, I used to listen to "Shab Booad, Biaban Bood" and I am also very much fond of his "sharghi ghamgin" and "daroo va nemikonam".  He has also covered some of his sister's poems which is a double joy, Forough's beautiful poetry and Fereydoon's great voice.  Thanks for remembering him and writing about this great Iranian singer.
