A 4 piece band founded in March 2015:
 
                                                              Ashley  Stone :  vocals.
                                                              Russel Harrison : guitar, vocals.
                                                              Pete Sims : drums.
                                                              Frank Pirois : bass.





 
 ALL ABOUT FRANK was founded in March 2015 with Andy Purcell (Electric Groove Temple) on vocals 
but in June 2016, he left and was replaced by Ashley Stone.
 
Ashley  has been hitting notes for over 30 years now, fronting that big metal band "School for the gifted" which took his voice to another level 15 years ago captivating worlwide audiences, but still 
keeping his foot in the door waiting for that next big sound.
15 years is a long time  to watch a big voice slip away in hibernation.
Now he s been reborn again thanks to the sound of All About Frank.
"This is fresh new sound coming from his old school Berkshire lad ."






 
 















 
 
Pete  started playing drums at 14 years old in a school band. His main influences are Cozy Powell and John Bonham. he had a spell in a all girl steel band and then played in a few local rock bands doing the pubs and clubs around the Reading area.

"Cause this band fucking rocks and it s got all the ingredients and potential for the diversity that i m after in life! Remember lads : 
"A band is not just for christmass!"
"These are human beings we re dealing with here. Well...some of 'em anyway and others that vaguely represent them"
"Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law, never mind the others..as if. Suck it in slowly and don't forget to chew the cud or you ll end up regurgitating your past ! ha!"

​Cheers Russ...
