Sorry abut writing here, but.. I am in sad days now.
My dear friend called Fran passed away the other day.
I don’t know what I say..
He was great bassist, he was great sound producer, and he had huge huge worm heart..
He was one of my first friends in London.
We’ve met Blues Bar at Oxford circus London, I was just arrived in the UK that time.
I didn’t have any friends, nothing music places that I could sing, but I went to many places to join some sessions..
Anyway I was just an Asian who live in the UK.
One day, I sang Blues Tune at jam session. He asked me recordings. he said, “I do record, I do mixed sound for you”.
We knew each other already, but my English speak wasn’t well that time, so I just went to some music places alone, and when I joined the band and met people there, I just said “Hello” and “Goodbye” only.
However, he knocked on my door.
Yes, he and some Blues friends care of me and tried to talked me lots with easy English. Then, I’ve got many friends in London, until now.
And, he gave me a first recording session in the UK.
After I tried recored with him, I found out lots music work.
I miss Fran. Everyone miss you now.
I hoped we have a drink and chat soon…
Rest In Peace Fran.
My first tried to acoustic tune it was “Hello Goodbye”.
Also it was my first recording.
He recorded and mixed them. it was 2006.
It was there that really it all started in London.
It’s my first played and recorded one… sorry my pronounce and some mistakes..but wanted to reminds myself about first memory of dear friend Fran with.
