Frank Palangi

NAME: Frank Palangi
INSTRUMENT: Guitar, Vocals

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Metallica’s Black Album. That album changed my guitar playing forever. After hearing the riffs and killer raw sound, I knew I had to learn this style to critique my craft. Metal side of me was born along with other ’80s metal bands.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Matchbox 20. It was at the Glens Falls Civic Center, toward the back section of the arena. Was in junior high then.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Piano. My grandfather had a piano in the living room next to the fireplace. I would actually play some keys on it. Learned “The Halloween Theme” on that… haha
