Can't believe this thread hasn't got any replies!

I love him, he's really good. Favourite songs are Thatcher Fucked the Kids, Love Ire & Song and Reasons Not to Be an Idiot. He's got such good lyrics and I do like a good old British accent smile.gif

ooohhh.. just realised people actually replied.
yey.

i could just listen to him all day. i think my favourites are long live the queen and the real damage.
his version of 'dancing queen' is beautiful too.

i actually saw him in concert about 2 days before i saw green day. he was really good. sounds exactly like he does on cd but better?? haha. but no, was excellent. had a support from a guy called 'beanz on toast'. should check out his song 'christmas at tesco' smile.gif.

the real damage went down really well too. <33.

opening for the offspring?! wow. that's cool. shame about the crowd though.

Haha this is really late but the show was fucking awesome! :D Got to meet him.. don't think I've ever met a sweeter guy than Frank.
My friend from the UK is crazy about him and we just sat and had a couple of pints and I saw him walking by.. I told my friend to shout for him to come over but she wouldn't dare.. that's when I come in :P I shout at him to come over and he did.. sat down and talked to us for quite a while...then he had to go. During the show my friend got picked up on stage to play the harmonica. It was fucking epic. After the show he came and sat down again :) Sat there for hours just talking, he was sooo super nice!!

Loved this guys music ever since he was in the band Million Dead. Unfortunately though I've never seen him live. That will change come Wembley though. Hearing he was supporting made my week :)

Frank is one of my favorite musicians, right now. His music is just plain great, and his live performance is unbelievable.

Sometimes I think this guy is more punk than half of the people who claim to be "punk" on a daily basis. I mean, he just has this way about him, and he just gets it. It's hard to explain, but listen to what he has to say and you might catch on to what I'm talking about.

Whenever one of his songs come up on shuffle, I usually have to either listen to it again or just continue only listening to Frank Turner songs for a while. :wub:
I can never get over him.
