Uh, no. It always is addressed because that is all the press Frank ever got. The more the record is set straight, the better. Don't you think Frank is tired of answering it? YES, but he also knows the value of the truth. I am tired of reading about it too, but if more people get to know the truth and not some concocted bullshit, I will endure reading about it.

I may the black sheep of this entire message board as the few people that have replied to anything Ive written have misunderstood what Ive said or my warped sense of humor had me coming off as crass. I apoligize to lori who asked what tabs were on another board in reference to a newbie asking about where he may find some in reference to the first few recordings. And I only thought prematurely that you cant find acid like that anymore and it was clearly a joke meant to insult noone. If we can' look at those stories of Franks past in perspective and realize that this is a person and talent that has evolved from a child prodigy to a man then somebody missed it I do often. Its a great story ...true or not never mattered ....the only truth is what comes from the mans mouth unmisconstrued . The bottom line is that I know of no artist guitarist or otherwise that has put on record on stage what this man has accomlished. To explain what its meant to me would take up far too much space. Frank is a gift given to us and hopefully we all better for it. If ive challenged anything that youre doing or have ever done its clearly because you have always been my idol. The best story is yet to come I die and come back as Frank.

Hey Plastic Man....... :winky
It can be too easy to misunderstand when reading something written. The only person who truly knows the meaning and feeling behind it, is the person who wrote it. But thank you for saying something. I appreciate it. No worries. :D

Well,you guys now know why some of us Brits call him Deaf Barton because reading the way he was putting these questions to Frank didn't come across very well-Deaf should stick to licking Kiss's ASS because that's all he used to do when he wrote for Sounds-hey aleast Frank got some exposure-but hey we are out here-AND ALL OF US WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE IN HIM AND SUPPORT HIM-Ps and Deaf is a twat because whenever any young axeman cites Frank as a Great Guitarist Frank is ALWAYS gracious(spelling) to them,deaf go back to working for a car magazine where you don't belong either

Barton always gave Frank decent reviews in the 1970s (and early 80s). He was one of the few journalists who weren't 'anti', if you know what I mean. 20 years later he's still interviewing Frank. Sylvie Simmons is another journo who was positive.

Like most journos, Barton probably has an agenda, but I don't believe he was being disrespectful to Frank in his heart. His writing style has certainly slipped. Been doing it too long I guess. Trying to be 'young' and 'rad'.

Anyway: all this publicity for Frank! Roll on the Summer in the UK!!! :headbanger

YEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!
Artist, musician, fan. Frank forever! By the way, I am LUNAPHAGE now, so I may be hassling you on myspace! :D

Snail,you do have a point about Barton,i mean he was the only supporting Rock Music in the face of Punk Music(at the time) and that's what find disappointing about him,i have said he used to like Frank's music and he has said in writing at the time(mid 70s)i felt the way he was putting the questions SEEMED disrespectful(to me he was)no matter,the main thing is Frank should be with us in the Summer and we can all look foward to that

There still appears to be present a tainted slant about Frank; it may be very subtle, but it's there, at least in this one. It's only my personal opinion, but this interviewer has not abandoned his own preconceived notions regarding the early storytelling about Frank Marino, and it's quite plain to me, too, that some people still want to peddle a sort of demeaning view of the whole Mahogany Rush thing. With a plethora of both new photographs and even more accessible quotes to use, he chose old ones that bolstered the old premise he is pretending to help refute.

Didn't like it - in fact, I thought it was lame. Frank is a very old & good friend, and I will always say to anyone, anywhere, that Frank Marino is simply a great musician and entertainer; that's what he does. It's a package, and his whole persona is predicated on nothing but the desire to do that. It has noting to do with an adolescent mindset anymore, save the name, and once in a while personal recollections that are powerful. So when this man is virtually slandered, it's still pretty lame. Thankfully, 99% of the writers who look at his career in retrospect and concomitantly comment about his current comeback, it's fair and truthful. Frank is just another rock musician amongst a hundred other guys making an attempt to earn a living while seriously entertaining those of us who dig what he does, and then, by default, peopel who end up seeing it by accident. They become die hard, life long fans. On the other hand, when COMPARED to those other peers of his, he's actually unparalleled, and we all know it.

Plus, the guy is sorta cool, if but a mailicious practical joker:-) (like his bud Willy, no doubt :-)

Nice to see the Port Vale concert metioned - I was there - and it was my first intro to Frank... The very next day I bought the LIVE album and IV - and I've been a huge fan ever since! Cant wait to see you, again! :D
