Video footage of ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello talking about how he connected with ESP and giving details about his ESP Frank Bello and LTD FB-4 Signature Series models can be seen in two parts below.
The biopic "Greetings From Tim Buckley", which marks the feature film debut of Frank Bello, will premiere this September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Frank Wood ("Changeling", "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3") plays songwriter and Jeff Buckley collaborator Gary Lucas, while Penn Badgley ("Gossip Girl") has been cast as Tim Buckley's son Jeff. Dan Algrant ("People I Know", "Naked in New York") directed from a script he co-wrote with Emma Sheanshang and David Brendel.
Bello shot his scenes in New York in September 2011, including an early call on the set the morning after ANTHRAX's September 14, 2011 homecoming concert at Yankee Stadium with the rest of the so-called "Big Four" of 1980s thrash metal (METALLICA, MEGADETH and SLAYER).
"Greetings From Tim Buckley" is one of three rival projects centering on Buckley's life. The film will tell the true story of the days leading up to Jeff Buckley's eminent 1991 performance at his father's tribute concert in St. Ann's Church.
According to indieWIRE, Bello previously had tiny roles in a handful of television and movie projects mostly as a member of ANTHRAX, though he did also play "Johhny, Rocker" in an episode of "Law & Order".
