A personal note from Frank:
Greetings fans, friends, family and freaks. I will be performing in my favorite southern city, Louisville, KY, this weekend. Then, it's off to London for the LIPS festival in November. When I return, it'll be time to finish my new book of poems. Then, a secret surprise will be unveiled come spring time. It will be my way of saying thanks. All I can say is it'll involve art, music, poetry and celebrating the human spirit. Thanks for the support, love and encouragement...and for all you new fans, thanks for the letters! Yep, my Mets may have lost....but in the end, poetry won!
Don't forget to check out the new CD I did with Ron Whitehead, Walking Home. Until then, Have fun and please take care of each other. fm
