Frank Lee Drennen

Frank Lee Drennen is Stewboss’ resident multi-purpose maniac. A short list of his many duties include playing guitar, mandolin, harmonica, a Radio Shack bullhorn, and balls-out singing. Frank spent his early youth traveling to and from the many US Marine Corps bases around the world and started playing guitar at the impressionable age of 15. Here are just a few things you people wanted to know about Frankie Lee…

Have you ever been arrested?
Only my development. Of course, there was that time I got handcuffed in Nowheres-ville, Texas while on tour because we were speeding and smelled of pot and were from California, and the cops were rude, kept ruffin’ us up and then…well, we won’t talk about that, just stay away from Texas cops.

So were you found guilty?
Every time.

When was your last fistfight?
A few years back with a band mate. The music was good; he just got sick of living in the same house with me.

My first kiss was with…
A girl named Laura in the 4th grade, but really I was in love with my teacher, Miss Traikner, because she drank TAB and read “James and the Giant Peach” so beautifully to all us kids in class, I knew she’d make a great mom and a good lover.
