#52 : « Gainsville »a rock album tattooed under the skin ! (Frank Meyer interview part 2)

Frank Meyer tells us the story of the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs‘ last studio album « Gainsville » : in three acts, song after song, step by step, we follow the album’s birth sticked to the fall of one of their musician… in the madness…a heavy story but a great album like always, maybe the best one ! After the album’s release the band broke up…for a few years. I let Frank free to speak as he wanted almost without asking questions : I hope you will appreciate his sincerity in this long and friendly conversation between Los Angeles and Marseille about the Cheetahs and the strange way of our lives.

Meltingpod Connections :
Thanks to my friend Pascal who turned me on Youtube tonight to watch the Saints : a video came under my eyes like a publicity…a strange coincidence : a fantastic (podcast) interview with Doc Neeson from the Angels in 1980 ! a few minutes later I found myself this ONE in 1976 and this ONE in 1978 !

Meltingpod Connections :
For the little story, last Spring Lars sent me a video where he played didgeridoo on « Night in Venice » with a friend of him at the vocals and guitar; I told him : hey Lars, it’s a fantastic idea but please, invite Chris to sing and play guitar with you…and he did it !!! Bravo Lars !! Last Christmas, Lars sent me this gift…you understood, we are a little obsessive !!
Another fanatic from San Francisco sent me this Saints video right now.
