Hal Leonard The Pixies And Frank Black
The Pixies were a shock to the system. Emerging from their first rehearsal held in a squalid Boston basement, they were soon the toast of the world and the new saviors of rock ‘n roll. Forerunners of grunge and with a repertoire of seriously weird songs, they made a virtue out of eccentricity. Then with mega-stardom threatened, Pixies songwriter and singer Charles Thompson, a.k.a. Black Francis, ditched the band, rechristened himself Frank Black, and insisted he hated the group until deciding to reform it for a sell-out tour in 2004!
