Check out this recent interview with Frankie where he talks about Dark and Drugs when they dumped Dave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weg-GmghlXs. Very disappointing. Can we just leave the Beret the eff alone?

I watched that one recently.

The funny thing is that from what I've always heard, Frankie was one of the ones who was allegedly messed up on cocaine for countless years.

90 seconds of trying to follow Frankie and I'm out. If I missed anything, let me know. But I doubt it.

Andrew, unless you didn’t already realize Frankie is an a$$clown, you missed nothing.

I don't understand the consistent trashing of Dave. Seems like the nicest guy in the world. Dave works hard and is great with fans. Frankie acts like Dave didn't have talent, my god. I love Jimi, but EOTT is not the same song without Dave's vocals. Has anyone else heard Nothing Can Shake Me off the first Survivor album or in concert? Effing awesome. I realize Dave was never the type to run all over the stage. He wasn't an amazing showman, but let's give the man his due. As for Frankie, no offense, stage presence isn't a 15-minute guitar solo of Take You on a Saturday that sends fans for a beer.

Honestly, it's probably a good thing that nobody cares anymore. To trash Dave like that for no reason, is completely ridiculous. The guy is just an a$$ clown. Plain and simple. He leaves out the part where Jimi toured with the bands name and FS sued everyone multiple times. To act like Dave couldn't hold his own vocally is a damn joke. The biggest mistake is if he truly threatened to leave the band, they should have took him up on that offer! God only knows how much more we could have gotten with that clown gone in '84, granted we would have all missed out on 55 minutes of extra useless guitar solos each show.
