I like that his first character was the question mark. Inquisitive already. Not to mention coordinated since you need the shift key for that one. :)

Frank…You do realize that if you played shows in Texas once a week, especially in Austin or Houston the venue would be packed every time you played!!! Your style is very mocked down here by a lot of bands and solo artists whom praise your style and influence. What are some of your favorite things to do in Texas!! I don’t know if you come down here often. But you should more frequently! - Cramer

Good evening sir! As always, i'm curious as to what you've been listening to lately.

A few unwarranted suggestions:

If you're in an organic singer/songwriter mood, I strongly suggest David Thomas Broughton's THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO INSUFFICIENCY. He recorded it live in a church, just voice, acoustic guitar and a few loop pedals. Really unique and quite thrilling.

If you're in a Jazz mood, you can't go wrong with Charles Mingus - MINGUS AH UM. It has my all time favorite Mingus piece "Self Portrait in 3 Colors" and is really fantastic from start to finish (plus the CD has some nice alternate takes).

Frank, read any good books of late? I'm reading a book called Cloud Atlas right now and am quite enjoying it. Nothing better than a good book, except that it is hard to find the time sometimes.

Daddy Frank: I've always wondered why you've never done "St. Francis" live before, but I guess I've come to the conclusion that, as a musician, the song must be pretty dang hard to pull off on stage and really do it justice. Is this basically the gist of it, or...uh...did William Mulholland drown one of your relatives and the song is too painful to linger on or something?

hi frank

thank you for the music !

just to let you know that i will use a part of your song "village of the sun" as the introductionary quote of my phd. it deals with global geophysics & tectonics, so the "opinion of the rocks..." - part fits quite well.

hope you will be touring soon in europe.

Hi Frank,

ditto on that..I used your "the sky in very bright and the sun is very clear" line from Massif Central in my phd dissertation dealing with collocations and language acquisition.

I also teach a course focusing on Music and Cultural Identity in the US and hope to center the course around "Americana" this upcoming semester. Any recommendations of songs that define "Americana" in your opinion? Either your songs or others of course.

Hi Frank,

I wanted to ask if you have a favorite Mr. Show sketch. I'd have to go with the Wycked Sceptre party tape myself.

I meant to tell you in L.A. at Amoeba Records (Black Letter Days and Devil's Workshop release) that you're making the finest albums of your career (and they've only gotten better since) and how much they've meant to my wife and I. All I could say was "It's great stuff" and run. An understatement if there ever was one.

Congratulations on your growing family

I was gonna say that I needed the Bunnymen like I need toilet roll, but I don’t need toilet roll because I never go to the toilet.

Frank, I've always wondered. How does your voice survive the constant thrashing it receives on the road (i.e. all that screaming)? I saw you in Toronto (11/2004) and I was astonished at how well you pulled off your very demanding vocals.

When/how did you begin singing? Have you ever taken lessons? Did you sing in a choir as a young tot? Are their any special tricks or techniques employed? Do you just let it come out and not think about that stuff at all?

I'd be very interested to read your reply to this. Thanks :).

John

Hey Charles! Since Jazz is frequently a topic in here, I was wondering if you've checked out any of the heavy contemporary cats like Brad Mehldau(pn), Josh Redman(ten.sax), and especially Kurt Rosenwinkel(gtr). These guys are improvisers of the highest order,the real MF'ing deal...no lie,run don't walk!!! what about Metheny? Ween? P.S. Toru Re-fretted A '62 P-bass of mine,very gracious and cool cat, neat to hear he does your shit too!!! Whats your Fav sushi spot in the 818?
Kind of all over the map here but thanks for never disapointing,truly an inspiration!!!

intended it

Mr. B.,

I've been inspired by your recording method - live to 2-track. So much so I made a record the same way... live to 2-track, 1/2", for the genuine rocking and rolling-ness of it. (Vocals were recorded later; my voice gave out in the studio.)

Seems some folks think that means "less cash in the studio," which I don't believe it is... I think it's for the immediacy, the genuine art, the discipline of it... at least for the musicians in the crowd, like me.

Care to comment on why you choose to record this way? Is it for simple commitment to tape of a song, less computer-machine-aid, like so many bands today, or ...?

Thank you!

ha. funny. i just sang it that way. the lyric of course was sky/clear, sun/bright, but in the swing of take after take i just swapped them one time, and that was the "best' take, which i was happy about because the line was much better. kind of like that dylan line: smoked my eyebrows and punched my cigarette" or something like that...
