Re: Non-Frank Gigs

I saw Gretchen Peters earlier this week in Whelans. Lovely gig.
Gretchen is an absolutely masterful songwriter.

Hope fading a bit now with all these other festival announcements.

There is still a gap in the tour calendar though (5-7 July) that would make it possible....

Re: Non-Frank Gigs

I saw Wallis Bird last night at the Academy. Great gig. The band are like a gang and Wallis gets 10 out of 10 for stage presence. She looks so happy to be up there. For the last encore she and two of the band went into the crowd and sang without microphone. I was too late to the party to ever see Fr...

Eavesdropping

Hi Frank, Your eavesdropping tweets were amusing. It made me think of something I read about Ray Davies once. Chrissie Hynde said in an interview that when she and Ray were married and they would go out to a restaurant, Ray's entire attention would be on the people on the next table. He would get ab...

Don't know how he managed to answer so many questions in a couple of hours.

Re: Springsteen

You hit the nail on the head, Skuzafan. When you're at a gig you just don't want it to end. In that way I think Frank and Bruce are quite comparable. Once the gig is over you find yourself thinking, "Can I go again tomorrow?" !

Re: Springsteen

The album is officially out (over here anyway) and it's fantastic. I'm a huge fan and I could even find things to love about 'Working on a dream' but I reckon this is his best since 'Born in the U.S.A.'
Am even more looking forward to the concerts now than I was already...

Re: Gigs In the USA: 2012 Edition

I was at St Louis tonight. A wonderful small venue which was completely packed. And isn't it great to be at a gig where the highlights are the new songs? Normally that is when everybody heads to the bar, but the two new songs tonight went down a storm. Bring on the next album! A lovely version of 'T...

Re: Queen + Adam Lambert

I don't know this Lambert guy, but I don't like the idea of it. Like the Faces with Mick Hucknall. Did that actually go ahead...? That said, not all replacements are bad. I was always a huge Big Country fan (has anyone else noticed the probably accidental similarity between their song "The Seer" and...

Re: Wembley super update

Okay - to clarify.... It is a pity if one stage means fewer acts in total. However, I really want to see Frank and Billy Bragg. I was imagining Billy Bragg headlining ´stage two´, hence the thought that I would have had to hurry after Billy finished to get to the main stage for Frank. Now I can just...

Wembley super update

Hi Frank.
Thanks for the blog and all the news. I actually consider this good news. Am a fan of both yourself and Billy Bragg, and I was wondering if I had to run back and forth, or loose out on a good spot for your gig if I wanted to be at the ´other stage´ before.
Great news about the DVD too!

Re: Bob Dylan live

I totally admire the man for everything he has done - particularly his older albums, but also some of the newer ones; his excellent book; his radio show; his paintings. But.... live he has disappointed me several times. I think I have seen him seven or eight times in total (all after 1990) and the o...
