I'm not going to say that this is going to be the last post we're going to do on Frankie 45 -- because, to be honest, I highly doubt that much to be the case.

There are too many other memorials in the works -- a tribute album is currently in talks, and, at La Grange on January 29, the surviving members of Spector 45 will be playing their final show under that banner, with the help of one of Frankie's oldest friends stepping in to play Frankie's parts.

But, until those events come to pass, yes, this post seems a fitting end to the constant stream of items we've posted in search of some closure in response to the loss of one of Dallas' and Deep Ellum's finest.

As such, after the jump, courtesy of our friends at Yes Go Productions, we've got one last tribute to Frankie to share with DC9 readers. At last week's memorial concert for Frankie, a couple of Yes Go videographers set up a video booth out back on Club Dada's patio, asking friends of the fallen greaser-punk frontman to share their favorite memories and stories of the young musician.

It's a touching tribute, well worth the watch. So, please, do just that.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
