Me pictured here with my late father, Vincent Paul Frattasio after a gig on Cape Cod. He was a teacher, coach, athlete, world-class artist (portraits in oils, water colors, pencil, etc.) a real renaissance man. I believe the dexterity in my hands for playing my guitar came from his hand talent and dexterity as a painter of incredible portraits etc.
I sure wish he was around today to see all his grand children and the parents his sons and daughter have become. I get to see a little of my Dad in all my siblings and their kids (my nieces and nephews), a very neat thing.
