Very sad news.

What a player.

I'll never forget "Georgia". Seemingly effortless, but beautiful.

Thanks, Frank.

Bon Voyage.

Very sad news. Frank was not just a legend in Sheffield. I first saw him 1969 or 1970, playing at The Ancholme Inn in Brigg (North Lincs, my home town). Brigg was a bit of a small, sleepy town, but Frank livened the place up, and the pub was always packed and rocking whenever he came over - which he did often. Also saw him at The Greyhound on Fulham Palace Road, and Kingston Poly (supporting Al Stewart) when he was trying to reach out to a wider audience in the early 70s. Then many great nights at The Pheasant after I moved to Sheffield.  He was always willing to spend time chatting to us, and even brought the band back to my parents' house after one Brigg gig. Top talent; top man.

In the early 70`s we came over rom Rotherham to see his free concert in Weston Park.About six years ago my partner and I saw him at the Shiny Sheff.After he had finished I went over for a chat and a drink.I explained where I had first seen him where he thanked me for going then and still seeing him again so many years later.I always remember seeing Bill Wyman( ex Rolling Stones) a couple of years ago  who stood at the front and paid tribute to Frank for his music and how he looked after his family rather than chasing fame .Of course the place errupted.Moving to Sheffield was made all that better for seeing him play once more .RIP  A real Sheffield legend
