Episode 1: The Outtakes

It’s tough trying to fit everything into a 15 minute video. I’m going to try really hard not to exceed that but sometimes things are left on the cutting room floor. Plus, there’s going to be a lot of clips that we can’t hold in the laughter, or we (or the musician) mess up or something out of the ordinary happens. I love blooper reels so I wanted to make one (mainly for myself and my friends). Hope you don’t mind my girlish giggle.

Before we even started, Frank was goofing around in my apartment with a song to my wife and trying to annoy her, and then broke out some Journey as well. Later on, we were trying to film with that pesky, barking dog and were just killing time. Frank decided to play the ’80s song “Heat of the Moment.”

When we went to the marina, Frank was messing around and played a little bit of Social Distortion. The final song is Frank trying to play Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” Apparently it’s a tricky song to play because Frank had quite the time playing it. It took him a few takes to get it and then got about half way through and had enough. Doesn’t make sense to add that to an episode but it’s funny how he messed up. It’s also fitting for a blooper reel as well.

Frank Froese – “The Angel”

After dinner, we decided to film Frank some more and we ended up at the Marina in my neighborhood. It was a nice evening, not to hot or cold and there was a nice pink sunset overlooking the marina. Frank performed a Bruce Springsteen cover of “The Angel.” Like what Frank said at the end of the video, we’re in Jersey after all. Can’t perform in New Jersey without either covering The Boss or Jovi, but I can’t see Frank covering Bon Jovi. Maybe as a joke?

Thankfully there were no annoying barking dogs near by while we filmed this time.
