Sometimes Frank was a little
to a lot overboard drinking wise
that never stopped him
from his accomplishments
After GAZZARI'S was torn down
FRANK was a carpenter for the
Billboard, now Key Club and built
its revolving stage
our imported caretaker...
circa 1980's PUNK SCENE
While it is very hard to talk about
Frank even years after his passing,
doing so bring fond memories of
the friendship Frank
GAVE TO THE ENTIRE scene
He gave so many BENEFITS
for people in the SCENE.
Always star studded
features to help someone,
and Frank only wanted
a six pack in return.
Of course I had known Frank a long time,
and I wanted to tape at the Variety Arts Center
THE DEAD BOYS, so I waited by the
dressing rooms to ask permission.
The dressing room door opens and there is
Frank who sees me and motions like an
old time hand movie camera and motioned
me inside to meet Stiv Bators, and the ok to tape.
Thank You once again Frank.
Stiv Bators called me from New York
while watching the copy of the gig
which he liked... he asking me if I liked the
DEAD BOYS or LORDS of the NEW CHURCH.
Great guy. Oh, I had taped the LORDS
at a benefit before by Frank at the Music Machine
English Frank hung out a lot at
The Cat and the Fiddle on Sunset
he partied with friends there
he got married there
we made plans for his benefit
when he was sick there
and later plans, there too...
Benefit after benefit to help friends...
if you get to see WE JAM ECONO
the scenes of the Minutemen,
I shot, at the Music Machine
are from a benefit Frank put
on for Keith Morris of the Circle Jerks
