Frank Turner
« on: June 27, 2013, 09:08:23 PM »
Had enjoyed some of Frank Turner's music (saw him at Bamboozle Festival a couple of years ago and he was good live too), but was surprised to find he's a big Counting Crows fan (says August changed his life and that he learned to play guitar by playing along to it), and has done some Crows covers in concert.

Frank has something of a cult following over here but has had a higher profile after being chosen to play a few songs at the warm up show before the Olympic opening last year

Thanks for the info. I had no idea he was a Crows fan.
