SEEKINGBand to Join, Other Percussion.
I have a career I love, so I play for the joy of it. Committed? Well, I do have plans I am committed to....
Notes on uploaded music: all music and lyrics by John Franklin
All instrumentation by John Franklin (multi-track recordings).
"Say It Again": Hey, it ain't rock, but I like this song pretty much the way it is. Written in Spain under the influence of their beautiful cathedrals. Like all good love songs, it is ambiguous as to whom it is being sung.
"Some Things Work": This is my nod to George Harrison. This song badly needs to be re-recorded (recorded a few years ago, and I am not happy with the musicianship); but, who has the time??
Video: Johnny B. Goode (3/24/18) I figgered some R&R was warranted here. This is a band made up of people with whom I work as a special ed teacher.

I always liked the diversity of influences used by the Grateful Dead. I always liked the way they were willing to experiment with different riffs and sounds. I also inheritated Jerry Garcia's affection for folk music. I deeply appreciate the philosophical depth and direction of George Harrison's music. Who's Next was one of the great albums of our generation. Bob Dylan deserved the Nobel he received. And so much more i like....

WHY would anyone list their equipment here? I have what I need (my wife suggests a bit too much) to play small solo gigs, big solo gigs, band gigs, acoustic OR electric.
