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!

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.
