Truly the Fretless Monster, Tony Franklin: April 2022 Issue
I have been hearing Tony Franklin’s name come up frequently when navigating the bass community and more so when the topic of fretless bass comes up. He is one of the few people in Rock that plays fretless and with an incredibly high level of proficiency. But he is so much more than the ‘fretless monster’. Tony is extraordinarily hardworking, in-demand and is intricately involved with so many projects:
- He has played with a huge list of major rock bands
- He is a camp counselor at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camps
- He produces a prolific amount of videos both instructional as well as performances
- He lays down bass tracks for countless musicians
- And as if that weren’t enough he is currently writing a book!
Join me as we hear all the details of Tony’s musical journey, his many projects, how he gets his iconic sound, and his plans for the future.
