It's a bit counter-intuitive that Frank is now the drummer in GN'R with most live concerts played, but it's a fact. He overtook Steven now in Moscow. Well done!!

OK, I see your clue... also me he looks (in my imagination) like a Barbary Coast pirate circa 1697. I believe they had drummers on their galleys for the oarsmen to keep time. Thanks for including the pics here, there aren't so many of Frank as he doesn't get to jog around the stage. Speaking of Christian Pirates, Devil Laugh , I've seen at least one great pic of Frank playing with The Compulsions. If I come across some, I'll put it in Side Projects.

He's been very active on social media lately, at least. With no GN'R touring planned in the near future I guess he has time to renew his sites.

Frank is cool...
http://themusic.com.au/news/all/2017/02/14/guns-n-roses-drummer-jammed-at-the-bearded-ladys-sunday-sesh-church-while-in-brisbane/

He may be a member of one of the biggest bands on the planet, but Guns N' Roses drummer Frank Ferrer proved himself a down-to-earth guy who just loves the heck out of music while in Brisbane with the iconic outfit earlier this month when he joined in an epic jam session at a local venue.

The Music has learnt that Ferrer was in West End on the Sunday before their show at QSAC Stadium, when he stopped into beloved live venue The Bearded Lady during its nascent weekly CHURCH improv session, the brainchild of multi-faceted local musician Ofa Fanaika (Chocolate Strings, Captain Dreamboat).

Following the first set of the day, Fanaika struck up a coincidental conversation with the renowned drummer — who, she is the first to admit, she did not recognise at the time — and found out that he was "just travelling through" with his band.

"I asked him what the name of his band was called, and he said a rock band called 'The Gunners' and asked if I'd heard of 'em," Fanaika said of the fortuitous meeting. "I said nah… but that doesn't mean much — I'm a bit out of the loop with these kinds of things. Always heaps of rad stuff happening in the neighbourhood, so I get a bit sheltered here."

Despite being "pretty wrecked" from the journey to Australia, Ferrer gamely agreed to join the next improvisational piece when invited up by a Fanaika, who was evidently informed of the man's pedigree and herself lends some deeply soulful improvised vocals to the 10-minute long gospel jam, along with fellow vocalist Kel Timmons (Bankrupt Billionaires) and instrumentalists Lee Brackenborough (Moreton, Captain Dreamboat, Big Dead), Andrew Fincher (Big Dead, Swingset) and Brandon Mamata (Weightless In Orbit).

Suffice to say, it was a pretty damn special moment for all involved — and somewhat par for the course these days, Timmons says.
