Episode 2 - A Wounded Healer - Let Me Be Frank


Originally we had planned to do a documentary about Frank's life and work because we have so much footage and so many photographs. But we did not want to do a "normal" talking head style documentary. We realized that Frank had already written a biography of sorts in his book, "Art of a Shaman" so we decided to try to use that as the "script" for the video. We decided to see if we could get people who were important to Frank and had played a part in his life to each read a chapter of the book. After drafting the email and sending it out we were blown away at the immediate response and the project took off. We assigned chapters to readers using the random principle ... as Frank loved to do ... pulling a piece of paper with a chapter number written on it from a bag as we read a person's name.

Once we had all of the recordings of the readings and added up the time, the documentary was going to be at least 3 hours long ... and it was going to take a really long time to put together. We then had a eureka on a walk one day.... we could put each chapter out on the web as we create  them  ... as episodes!

Several musicians are now creating "background music" for each episode.

Way back at the beginning, when we first had the thought of even doing a documentary about Frank, we asked Vinnie Spit Santino if he would write a song for it, without any idea how we would use it ... or what we were even doing with the documentary. Vinnie wrote the amazing "Let Me Be Frank" that will be the opening song for each episode ... and the title of the series!

Frank Moore wrote: This jam started where a lot of the jams end up within … the small erotic caves of melting intimacy. So this time we could explore deeper inside those caves.

The Cherotic All-Stars this time included the members of HOP-FROG's DRUM JESTER DEVOTIONAL, as well as Sean, Monique, Erika Shaver-Nelson, Linda Mac and Frank Moore.

It was a wild, intense, full-out jam of us THREE MADMEN! All 3 of us were on keyboards. Andy was also playing a 12-string guitar, bass and jumping around with his sousaphone. Peppe and I did spaz vocals and Andy howled. We kept the fevered insanity for about an hour!
