American artist Joe Frank is still alive after epic cancers, ICUs, sedations & operations. I miss his work. I miss catching up with him. It's clear it'll be his kind of hell to write/record another story. Here's a downpayment for one. Wanna help?

Joe Frank


As you know, Joe's been seriously sick for a long time, with his wife Michal updating tons of friends and fans on his condition and trying to raise some money for medical bills. While running herself ragged. 

You know the "struggling artist" trope? Who else is sick of it?

I wish I could hear Joe doing a little riff on .... anything!  I thought I would ask colleagues, artists and supporters to will him back to the typewriter and microphone by laying in a little dough.

Oh sure, he's motivated to live. But we know what really motivates him: WORK.

Let's see what we can do by midnight tonight. 


I'll start off by asking my mother for $15 bucks. (I'm broke too.)  But let's not embarrass ourselves here. I would like to pull together a real advance for Joe. You can use cards or PayPal.

And please pass this around as fast as you can.
