Frantz reacted very annoyed versus Bob Dylan last weekend who writes in his upcoming book that Elvis Costello & The Attractions was so much better than his peers back in the 70s.
Frantz addressed Dylan: “I understand you dig Elvis Costello, but did you have to put it that way? There were so many good bands then, and I spent many nights at CBGB and saw a lot of superior performances. How can you make such a sweeping generalisation? I think it’s a very good book – despite that one chapter. With all due respect to the Attractions and to drummer Pete Thomas in particular, I’d like to say to Bob something he once said to a buddy of mine.‘Suck a dick.’”
