And Frank was not shy at all about get paid, he'd play Roo, Vibes, Coachella and pretty much any place that had the loot.

I think he'd focus more on individual players than bands.

I'm sure he would have gladly taken a festival payday. The fans who like him would be down front hanging on every note.

Tabbooma thinks Frank would like them Bisco's for scaring hippies and regular folks... Frank would dig ZPZ and the dedication to getting it right ;)

Frank would probably dig the composed section of Phish, along with the incorporation of audience participation elements. He would probably appreciate the multiple styles and precision of Umphrey's McGee. He's probably like Grace Potter's legs.

If you don't like Grace Potters legs, then why don't you just get the hell out.

He would probably goof on all of those bands and especially us fans. That's just how he was. Would maybe have even written some tunes about it haha

He had some surprising favorites. He was a huge fan of Brian May from Queen. If you can find the recording, he played guest DJ on a London radio station and played some cool stuff, including "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich.
