Michael Franks Interview Page 4
Smitty: Excellent, man. It’s beautiful. Well, I must congratulate you on this great record and certainly look forward to seeing you out on the road and hearing some of this great music live because it’s a wonderful album you’ve put together, that’s for sure.
MF: Thanks, Smitty.
Smitty: All right, my friend. So give me your Web site so we can put that up there as well.
MF: It’s www.michaelfranks.com.
Smitty: All right.
MF: And I have a great Webmaster and of course he’s after me to be more frequent with my information with my updates. I’m trying to get better at it, but I have a lot of great fans who check out the site and I have a lot of interesting photographs of these recording sessions.
MF: But I like to take these pictures, kind of like arm’s length pictures where I’m actually holding the camera myself with each of the guys, so there’s some interesting shots that you can find on the Web site.
Smitty: Very cool. Michael, congratulations once again, you’ve scored another great album, as always. This is, what, number 16?
MF: I think so, yeah.
Smitty: Wow, that’s fantastic.
MF: (Laughs.) I’ve slowed down in my late middle age, but I enjoy it as much as ever, so….
Smitty: Absolutely and it shows in the music, trust me.
Smitty: Wow. Well, Michael, thanks again for chatting with me and I certainly look forward to seeing you on the road and enjoying some more of this great music. All right. We’ve been talking with the incredible Mr. Michael Franks. You must check out this great new record, it’s called Rendezvous in Rio and it’s got some great tunes with great lyrics, and this is a must for your collection. Michael, thanks again and let’s hook up again, my friend.
MF: Thanks, Smitty, my pleasure.
