Thanks for having me.

Anything I can say about Frank would read like a testimonial. Apart from being one of the most brilliant engineers I've ever known, he's one of my favorite people and a very dear friend.

We started working together on Hole's recording, Celebrity Skin. I recalled watching him dial in a vocal sound and the way he finessed everything- like an artist at an easel. From that time on, we've tried to work with one another as often as possible- which hasn't been very frequently of late.

One thing I appreciate about Frank is that he is thoroughly unafraid of taking chances. If someone has a crazy idea about how to do something or incorporate some untried, untested technology or approach into a recording, he will figure out how to do it. He loves helping facilitate creative flights of fancy and always adds his own touch. You can never underestimate a collaborator like him.

And his discography backs this up. I love his interviews, seems like a cool guy.

BTW, thanks for doing this!! Your work inspired me A LOT when I was getting started.
