Tony Franklin

Thanks to my friend Paul, I have a renewed interest in the fretless playing of Tony Franklin. Tony has played bass for a lot of people but most notably for Jimmy Page's The Firm and Blue Murder. He is known for introducing fretless bass to hard rock and metal audiences.

I decided to look Tony Franklin up on YouTube and sure enough, I found the following clip. It is a really beautiful solo arrangement of Led Zeppelin's, The Rain Song. The video is a bit shaky, so if you are prone to motion sickness, just listen and look away.
