Hi frank,

"Let me start by saying I am 39 and i just got your book by accident. with the [store name omitted] store going out of business i ran accross your book this past friday and finished it yesterday. You are someone that I have put on my list as somoeone that I want to meet. First off i was one almost you. I had all the makings of going your route when i was 16 I met some really cool skins when I was working one night at my job at alpha beta in [city name omitted] ca they told me they were in town for a rally and gave me some letiture and said if I was interested to show up at thier party that night. Lets just say to this day I still wonder what whould have happend if I showed up. The only reason I didnt is because my best friend was korean and I just didnt believe in following the movement based on race when I knew that my friend was willing to give his life for me as I did for him. we both hated every other race but I knew they wouldnt except that so I choose not to go.

we were both into the the punk scene and believed in all that. after reading your book this past weekend it brought up some past emotions and i think you are a incredible human being and what you have done to turn your life around is nothing short or a mericle. I have been through a ton not as bad as what you went through but close. the one thing that made me change my views on race relations was the day I found out i was going to be a dad which was 10 years ago and I didnt want to pass on my hatred to my son my beliefs were mine and I wanted my son to make his own views. After watching the videos on your site I am going to do a 3 day fast and see if my life changes the way u did.

I am starting this wednesday. I have a bucket list ! and now I just added meeting you to that list. I hope life is ! good for you."

From time to time, Frank is asked for photos of his younger days. Because of his dubious noteriety, Frank avoided cameras regularly. Below, however, are scans of some photos that exist from these days, displaying his wealth of body art. Again, click on any image to get a more detailed view.


If you are a media outlet, university or event promoter and would like some high-resolution photos of Frank from his younger years (like these above), please contact Frank at and you will get access to these assets. Thank you!
