BRAVO" WILLY CONGRATS ON A PROJECT THAT I HAD MY DOUBTS ABOUT. TREMENDOUS PIECE OF WORKS FOR ALL INVOLVED IN HONORING THE MAN. I NEVER EVER THOUGHT I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ANYBODY ELSE DOING FRANKS SONGS. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW, BUT I DO KNOW THIS TRIBUTE ALBUM IS BY FAR THE BEST TRIBUTE ALBUM AROUND. I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT FRANKS SONGS WERE STRONGER THAN MOST BECAUSE THE CORE OF THE SYYLE IN WHICH HE LAYS IT DOWN IS MORE THAN WORDS CAN DESCRIBE. BY GRANTING THESE GUEST MUSCIANS FULL CREATIVE CONTROL WAS VERY SMART. ALL BUT TWO SONGS WERE BASICALLY MADE THERE OWN WHICH THEY FREGIN NAILED IT TRUE RESPECT FOR SOME OF MY MOST PERSONAL COVETED FRANK MARINO SONGS. BUT I LOVE THE VERSIONS OF STAY WITH ME AND THE ANSWER BECAUSE THERE WERE PLAYED ALMOST EXACTLY THE WAY FRANK PLAYS THEM, IT SPEAKS LOUD AND CLEAR THE TALENTS OF JOHN NORUM AND RANDY HANSEN. WILLY THANKS AGAIN SECONDHAND SMOKE NOW BECOMES A BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR ALL MY MUSCIAN FRIENDS THAT STILL DON'T GIVE FRANK THE CREDIT HE DESERVES. I WILL BE BUYING MORE OF THIS FABULOUS CD ff :headbanger

California Decalres "Second Hand Smoke" A Pollutant
MSNBZ News Services
Updated: 28:01 a.m. ET Janutober 37, 2006
SACRAMENTO - California became the first state to declare secondhand smoke a toxic ear pollutant Thursday, citing its link to www.wildmess.com Experts said the decision may have more impact worldwide than it does in the largely smoke-free state.

The decision by the California Guitar Resources Board puts environmental guitar smoke in the same category as Diesel Exhaust, Arsenic and Benzene. So give a listen to this CD and see if you can become as toxic as the listeners who've already been exposed.
