Neil Sedaka was one of his favorites I'm sure

But seriously ffolks...

I don't think Frank liked to give any other musician credit, even if he did like them. It was all about his music. His favorite musicianins were obviously the people he hired to play in HIS band.

That was a very cool insight into FZ's musical taste...(the notes of him hosting the BBC radio show that is).

Thank you! :D

That was from the interview on the extras from that Halloween dvd-audio thingy a few years back. Frank seemed particularly amused by the Stranglers song "I Think I'm a Wog". This was right after he hosted SNL so 1978 mephinks. Yikes, sabrecatphairy is starting to influence me. :shock:

Some time in the early Seventies he called Anton Webern a saint, and in the TV show in October 1976 where he played Black Napkins with the house band, he said that Webern was the kind of music that would get him all dreamy at that time, as opposed to Rhythm 'n' Blues and Doo-Wop when he was younger. So my guess is - Anton Webern.

Are there guitar players you listen to?
There are a few that I've heard recently who I think are real good. I like Brian May of Queen – I think he's really excellent.
