Michael Jackson

I'd like to take this moment to say I'm deeply saddened at the untimely death of Michael Jackson. He was and will always be THE greatest entertainer.

My condolences go out to the entire Jackson family.

Rest in peace Michael.

Sad News

My sister Merlina called me last night very upset. She received news that a long time fan and friend Lorrie Gnos is terminally ill with cancer. Lorrie was and is a major fan that appeared at many of our shows and ultimately became friends not only with Merlina but the family.
It'a always horrible to hear such news and of course it makes what ever problems we think we have very minor.
Our thoughts are with her, her husband Marco and their two children.
I spoke to Lorrie last night and she gave me permission to give out her e-mail address for those of you that wish to send a kind word.
That e-mail is;

Thanks so much.

Update...still Here!

Hi Everyone,
Well It's been awhile since I've posted and some people checking in are worried about me or ticked off. As always, time slips away. Things are great and am very busy with work.
I've read the most recent comments and I do recieve and read all e-mails sent to me. I REALLY appreciate everyone who comes to the website and participates in making new friends going down memory lane. I am concerned about people who are looking for the DeFranco Family CD I released. I wish I could have continued the release however KTEL went BUST- thus left me without the funds they owed me to continue to press additional CDs. Now I see they are going for a small fortune on E-Bay. Amazing. Some fans have said that I should just make them available for download on our website. Wish I could...however the record company owns the masters so I woul have to cut some sort of deal. Having said all that, I promise that I will look into the possibility of cutting a deal with the record company so I can make it available for download.
I hope everyone continues to enjoy the website and I will talk to my website guy about changing
or adding some new stuff.
All the best...
