    I'm always curious as to what these "re-imagined" songs will sound like when artists take something like this on. Here's hoping the version of "Long Live the Queen" on there is akin to the electric live version he's been playing the last few years!

    New song is pretty decent. Interested to see what he does with the new versions. Always love listening to Frank. He has evolved so much since Love,Ire and Song.

    Would love to see him revisit some Million Dead stuff, but I know that'll never happen.

    I think one day when the time is right he may. I don't think he's ever come out and said flat out it'll never happen (unless he has then please disregard), but he just sinks SO much time into his music now, any time off he has is still spent working on his music. He is one of the hardest working musicians out there, and reading his book was honestly an eye opener at the stuff he has gone through on the road and the stuff he continues to put himself through. He's one of the few artists right now I honestly never ever have trouble supporting or pouring money into.
