ZL: I wonder who is your favorite vocalist alive today? Who's the person who kills you?
ZL: It's hard for me to get past Frank. Like I struggle...
JT: Frank is phenomenal
ZL: I mean to me, when he when he sings, I just become drawn into his world.
JT: Well Frank's like like this great R&B singer and Bob Dylan at the same time, you know? The expression and the honesty that comes through, you know? You talk about a person that writes in a Rubik's Cube of cryptic material, but the emotion of the vocal gives you a glimpse into how genius the lyrics are. It's almost like everything with the lyrics is so cerebral but everything with his voices is all heart.
