     Kerry sez:
Where do I start.  When I left the music business in 1977, I devoted my entire time in my families plastics business. Although I have loved every second of it I still miss music. I don't think I will ever tire of it. I recently bought a modem and have been playing catch ever since. 
When I discovered Frank's news group on AOL I've just read my pants off.  
I miss you all maybe someday I'll see you again. Give Gail a hug for me.

     Kerry sez some more:
The last project I did with Frank was in NY where I recorded his show at the Palladium on Holloween. Frank wanted me to go with him to Chicago and I was stupid enough not to go. I had a album to do with George Duke.
I can't tell you how sick I was when I heard about Frank's Illness. 
When he died I felt as thought a piece of me died.
Frank and Gail always treated me as family. I cared for the both of them as though they were my family. There are a lot of things I did in the late 70's I wish I could change. One would be to have spent more time with Frank. If I had only known. I read Ruth's interview. I liked Ruth a lot. I use to tease her when ever I could. I only tease the people I really care for. Ruth was very upset at Frank's Illness also. I was really surprised she left the music business about the same time I did.

You asked what I have been doing since I worked with Frank. When I left the music business I went to work for my Father in his business. You may think this is strange but I over heard Frank tell George Duke one day to "Invest in yourself. You will never cheat yourself". I took that to heart more then Frank ever knew. For the last 14 years I have stayed in that business. I still buy tons of CD's. I still play now and then. I even mixed some tracks for a friend last year. And I will never give up music. I will love music until the day I die. In many ways the best days I had where with Frank and all the musicians in his bands. When I have a really bad day I think back to all the good times I had. It always makes me smile.
