IN festival Express, he does leap off the stage and play to some kids hanging out around the side back of the stage, neat moment!  He talks in the interviews about the first guy he saw pull that type of stunt, forget who it was though!!! but I believe it was one of Franks' heroes.  He tells this whole involved story about the band starting off, and you hear the guitar wailing, but he's nowhere on stage.  This goes on and on, and everyone's wondering, where the hell this guy is, eventually, from the side of the stage, this massive body gurd comes in carrying the guy wailing away on his back!!!! hahahahha
