not accurate.
frank did NOT play sax.
he wrote/composed music for the sax but he was primarily a composer, then guitarist, then percussionist.

frank didn't play any wind/brass, things like that.

ian underwood was one of his sax players
napolean murphy brock is another
motorhead sherwood

Cool topic.

I collect statues, paintings and anything at all with the three monkeys (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil). I've got stuff from all over the world, it's probably the one thing I have always collected.

i guess that's it! The digital age has been wonderful for me. Most of the stuff I used to collect (cds, dvds, games, etc.) would have taken up at least a room. Now it takes up a couple hard drives, which I have copies of, just in case. A fine advantage to a collection of anything.

I collect guns, knives, money and can't ever turn down candle holders and oil lamps.

I know it seems strange for a female to collect guns and knives. Being first born in our family my dad started me off early hunting. He wanted a boy but got me instead. So, I feel fortunate that he taught me all the manly stuff.

I collect several things. I have a very extensive but not very valuable coin collection, not many rare years and mint marks but just about every year that's worth next to nothing. I got around 350 guns, not so much a collection but i just like to get what's new and file the old ones away. My favorite thing to collect is autographed first edition books, none will probably be worth anything since they're all SciFi/Fantasy but i like em so why not have em autographed as well. I've got everything by R.A. Salvatore with the exception of The Icewind Dale Trilogy and the Dark Elf Trilogy. I've looked everywhere for these 6 books in the original hard cover but can't find them. I've also got about 75, 1:18 scale diecast cars of Matt Kenseth, they just sit in boxes in my basement though.
