Richard Branson's book 'Losing My Virginity' says that Frank was considering using the Virgin mansion house studio to record. Branson went to pick Frank up and played a joke on him by dropping him off at some random house and telling his to go on in - or something like that, I'm trying to remember. Frank didn't appreciate Richard's British humor it seems and never recorded with Virgin. Anyway, its in his book which is absolutely fascinating regardless of the tiny bit about Frank.

Interesting story. Yeah. I have a feeling Frank wasn't the type to appreciate a practical joke played on him.

Practical jokes suck. Not my kind of humor. No fun for the person having the joke played on them unless there is some kind of immediate reward at the end.

We used to play practical jokes all the time, but by and far they were harmless and not very elaborate or time consuming...some of the stuff people are doing these days is idiotic, to elaborate and time consuming, and anything but harmless...Jackass translates to dumbass... :idea:

I think that is pretty funny. I can imagine Frank's face after it all. Oh well maybe it is because I'm English.
