Here are a few of our favorite things:

Meet the Band:
  • John
  • Mark
  • Frank
  • Ed
  • Tim
  • Name: Frank

    Plays: Guitar.

    First show I ever played: A backyard biker barbecue in Canton, Ohio.

    First job: Dishwasher at a Chinese restaurant.

    Song I would listen to if crashing in a plane: "Batman" theme.

    Cats or dogs: Once took in a cute little stray kitten who was viciously murdered by the next door neighbor's Siamese cat three days later. Horrible, but true.

    Best concert: Curtis Mayfield at the now defunct Front Row Theater.

    Last meal I would choose: If I knew it would be my very last meal I don't think I could really enjoy it, so I would probably just opt for a handful of sedatives.

    If you see me out and about, buy me:Jack Daniels, up.

    Favorite books: "Of Human Bondage," "Brave New World," "The Oxford English Dictionary."

    Favorite flicks: "The Godfather," "Angels With Dirty Faces," "Night of the Hunter," "Dr. Strangelove."

    Childhood hobbies: Climbing trees while pretending to be a superhero I'd created called "Squirrel-man."

    Something you don't know about me: I'm a lover, not a fighter.

    Favorite song lyric: "To live outside the law you must be honest" (Bob Dylan, "Absolutely Sweet Marie").

    Greatest irrational fear: When I was a kid and I saw "The Exorcist" for the first time, I developed a fear of being posessed by the devil. Although I'm older now and only mildly superstitious, the idea still haunts me every so often.

    Sign in the Zodiac: Capricorn.

    Favorite junk food: For greasy, heartburn-inducing junk food, I dig pizza with anchovies and onions. As for sweet stuff, there's this relatively new candy bar made by Reese's called "Fast Break," which is like a cross between a peanut butter cup and a Snicker's bar. It's now the only candy bar I ever buy.

    Words to live by: "If it ain't broke, it probably will be soon enough."
