Rock Radio Celebrates New Frankie Miller Single
Frankie Miller is to release a single next week – and to celebrate Rock Radio is having a Frankie Miller Day on May 3.
The single, Bottle Of Whisky, is rather special, in that it’s a demo recorded in 1993, a year before the Scottish rocker suffered a brain haemorrhage which has left him unable to sing or play guitar. You may pre-order it now for 79p right here.
There’s also a Facebook campaign, which hopes to get Miller into the charts for the first time since 1992. Join up here.
Rock Radio actually kickstarted the release of this single, when Billy Rankin played it on his show. The response to it was so strong that it was regularly played at 9.15 every Friday morning.
During the Frankie Miller day, the station will not only be playing loads of his songs, but also tracks from artists he’s inspired. These include Aerosmith, Free, The Quireboys (currently performing Bottle Of Whisky on their European tour), Procol Harum, Ten Years After and Cher.
If you’re wondering what makes the man special, this is what Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh says:
“The first time I heard his amazing voice it made the hairs on the back on my neck stand up. I heard this incredible soulful, almost spiritual voice. I’ve never heard anybody sing like that.”
