Hey Frank, have you ever given thought to writing a book or releasing a journal? Brilliant show last night in LA by the way! Cheers - Nate

I'd like to see a book of poetry, if you've ever dabbled in it.

I would be too. But then again, some of his lyrics are pretty much poetry anyway!
I'm no good at thinking of something funny enough for these things.

They're close, but poetry is a different form of art.

I know...
My first experience of Tape Deck Heart was reading the lyric booklet (on the bus, on my way to see Frank as it happens!) and I couldn't help but be blown away by how amazing they were just read.

I know what you're saying. Wherefore Art Thou Gene Simmons plays to me like spoken word with instrumentals backing it. Like Jim Morrison's "An American Prayer" album.

I read some of the tour diary stuff. It was pretty lame:
"I went on stage and played some songs. Managed a particularly good G# - not once, not twice, but thrice. Felt like Brian fucking May. After the show I did the kind of pee that could flood a small village. A girl tried to kiss me but I told her I had herpes."

I think you should Ghost write it.

I second this idea.

I am not even joking. I read a rough draft of what he had done and it was all about how great he can play a G# and all the girls he has kissed. Oh, and me. There was an awful lot about me and how much I influence everything he does.
