R.I.P. singer/songwriter Bob Frank - R.I.P. Bob Frank, who has been a friend of our family since 1972, when Great Escape Music Group CEO Gary Walker coproduced his debut album on Vanguard Records. Bob told us a few months ago that he was terminally ill, but we were not prepared for the shock of hearing that he's passed this last July 18th, 2019. Our record label is in the process of releasing a compilation album on him, and we deeply regret that he didn't get to hold a copy of it in his hands before he left us.
