Like everyone else here, I am eternally grateful for the wonderful reviews, great photos and the positive feedback from all the fans that attended the U.K. gigs. As the saying goes, "it's the next best thing to being there." ( Well, that's at least partially true....wistful sigh here. ) To make all those images complete-Frank's eloquent personal diary of events. Perfect! Now I feel like I have truly shared in everyone's experience! Thank you fellow fans for your perspective of what it is like to witness the magic of Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush...LIVE! Thank you Frank, for your wonderful memories set in images and words.
Next stop...the West Coast?! ( Well, you never know, do you?? )

My thanks as well to Frank, the band, and all our mates across the big water! Great stories, views, perspectives! You guys rock!!

Whatever would we do w/o Franks music in our lives!?!

Speaking of making it come to life, be sure and check out the "Ain't Dead Yet Forum"- Frank and Willy were kind enough to put up some short video clips that I shot in NYC. Be warned, though- It'll leave you wanting more!!

you should be rewarded with a lifetime's supply of your favourite ale as Frank credits you with giving him the impetus to carry on and have faith in what he was doing when he was here on the legends tour 2002.

all hail keith, the mighty gentle giant from belfast, and his fabulous wife adele who keeps him (somehow!!) on planet earth!!

love to you both, (and the rest of the board too)

Thanks Parky,

for the kind words....But hey man we are all Franksters together and we are equal in our love for his music, and at the end of the day thats what counts... I love the guy and when he plays I focus and just get lost in it... it is my escape from the everyday trials of life....

Thanks again

Keith :headbanger :headbanger :headbanger :headbanger :headbanger

ps.. Adele said hello!

I only hope and pray this tour never ends because I truly believe the appreciation is peaking and the music is more important now than ever .... God bless Frank and the band . With the strenghth of the music Franks will and the undying love of the fans on this very site I believe Franks genius and vituoso is stronger than ever as well never take it for granted again and as we turn our sons and daughters friends and partners on to what its really supposed to be like....... thank the legend and yourselves for the support for which this well may not exist. We love you Frank and those who travel through time with you . It transcends the very spirit of commradery family beauty peace and the goodness of life itself.

Diary of the U.K. Tour....

Post by Cornwall Steve »

Frank,

brilliant Frank's eye view of tour.

sorry about the blisters, it did remind me of 83 in Hammersmith or was it Birmingham, when you hurt your finger during the sound check, I hope you have recovered from them!

I hope Peter's last minute change of mind will stay with him, and that it's back "On The Road Again".

You didn't mention the Ladstock II T-shirt that I gave you at The Mean Fiddler, so I hope it fit and that you liked it, I was hoping that you would wear it for the Southampton (The Brook) gig, but there you go.

Check with Big Two in a couple of weeks for the rest of the T-shirts for the band and family!

I stopped myself from trying to push in front of everyone at the meet and greets, after not seeing you for 22 years I realise now that it didn't stop anyone else from doing it, so watch out next time!

I did try to see you before the Mean Fiddler gig and was going to come in with Mak, Saran & Saran's sister, but Steve Stanley pointed out it was small & rather crowded, and to wait until they came out to see you.

Alas, the time went quicker than we all expected, and we had to wait until after the gig, which didn't leave long aswe had to leave to catch a train home, we just managed to catch it.

I am keeping in touch with Dale, and trying to get airplay on the Radio stations over here, but I see your dilemma & the difficulties invovled, still I'll "Keep On Tryin'" because I am also "Stuck In My Ways".

So goodbye for now until your next visit.

Well well, i just quited my job. The "old boss" didn't give me no time to react on, and visit, a FMMR-tour. I still regret i started there; and missed Frank playing alive in England.
That is more important than just that job. No one can stop me now!!
Just jealous..........i now know you got to follow your heart and Frank's music is right in the centre of it.......

a mad fan from Holland, :headbanger
