Hi there,

Sorry to disagree :(

I value Frank Mertens very much because he contributed to the composition of the very first ( and most known ) album.

But, there came a time in the late'80's, early 90's that demanded that the depth and power of the songs were presented with a more powerful sound. I think even Marian enjoys guitars ( not big solos, just power-chording in sync with the voice and synth ) in his and others' music.

Just a thought,


Luís.

I think Franks talent is more valueable for AV than Rickys electric guitar...
misunderstand me right <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
I must say that I never liked guitars in AV songs...
cause AV for me is; synths, drummachines... and a fantastic voice.
And where does the guitar come into the picture??
I think Ricky have a little longhaired "hardrocker" style, and Frank is more "synther" style.
I think Franks personality is great. Something mystic and secret... like Alphaville it self.
Can't help it, Frank is my "all time" fav AV character :).
Ok, AV must work as a team, and maybe Ricky or Frank will make disharmony after all this years... but I still believe in a reunion *hoping for the best, but expecting the worst*

Wii: I have asked him, we'll see <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
And alpha-x; remember that it was Frank who made the melody of your fav song BIJ <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I'd like to know if it's still possible to get a copy of Maelstrom somewhere.

i hope he'll get into this forum..and marian as well,but that might take a little longer:(
i think that frank sound in AV is better or would have been better that ricky..who knows,maybe AV would have been on the world charts still today.it would be cool to know more about mertens,cause all my time with AV has only been with ricky..too little time with frankie..besides he is cooler than rick..more 80's in this guy..yeah.

Flame is great but i think they need something more powerful for their "coming back"...
Like Guardian Angel, Wishful Thinking....
If they will take Wishful Thinking Physical Mix and will put it on the radio + will shoot a video clip than this is it - TOP CHARTS!!!
Do it now guys! give it a try!
come on!!! i wanna see all the members supporting me right here right now!
Maybe this will give AV the push they need...(i said maybe....was i too harsh...?)

Jag skriver till hardin som är svensk. Jag vill också skaffa hans nya album och gärna få kontakt med honom. Har han gjort musik under alla dessa år för sig själv eller har han varit nergången på något sätt varit i nån konstig sekt som Ted Gärdestad.
