I disagree with a lot of things that reviewer had to say, especially the parts about preferring shorter, more familiar songs with less soloing. The thing that I like most about Frank's music is his ability to improvise for long stretches without repeating himself or "noodling." And, although I think Frank has a great voice, I would rather hear him smoking on the axe for 20 minutes than singing! I was recently at the Gibson factory in Memphis and saw this sign - I don't remember it word for word but essentially it said, "Vocals are the boring parts of songs between the guitar solos!" I pretty much agree! :headbanger :headbanger :clap :clap

But cut down on the Hendrix and resurrect some classic Marino tracks for improvisation.That's my idea!!

For the sake of argument, suppose Frank felt like playing 3 hours of nothing but country music covers - would you still be happy? Or would it be what you expected? Just because the other reviewer would've liked to have heard more songs with shorter solos, is he any less of a 'die hard FRANK fan'?

I have never personally gone to ANY concert to hear what that particular artist wanted play - but rather, what I want to hear. I don't expect to hear everything that I want, but I'll probably hear the majority of it. That comment makes it sound like the artist should totally disregard his/her fans - and let's face it - those are the people that are buying the tickets and cd's.

Frank has a multitude of great songs from his studio albums that he could perform live, but doesn't. I'd be willing to bet that if he did, he'd probably sell more records. Maybe this is not important to him - but I doubt it. I know his sales are important to me because if they don't sell - there won't be many more coming out and that would be OUR loss. I would also think that he likes most of the songs that he records for the studio albums, so to play more of them shouldn't be something that he wouldn't want to do.

Anyway, that's my two cents and I am a little IRISH. :D
