E-Mail from a fan?

 

I recently received this email from a so called Frank Marino fan. I tried to set him straight, to no avail. I am only sharing this with everybody to show that all fans are not alike. This guy has a Frank Marino page with stolen items from my site. Normally I wouldn't care because he claims to be a fan, but now after this barrage of crap, I have instructed him to remove my stuff immediately. Some people are just way too paranoid. Enjoy the read and stop by his site and sign his guestbook or just send him a friendly e-mail. People like this have no business in this Strange Universe. Make your own conclusions.

 

This is the initial email that I received:

hey wild willy, or whoever you may be. i just went to jjazz's homepage cuz i haven't been there in a while, and what do you think i found? a little *warning* about a nameless person claiming to know frank. i think he's talking about you..ya think? and frankly, i tend to agree with his conclusion. i've NEVER received a reply from frank when i e-mailed him..only from you. i think you're a hoax. and if i find out the truth, i'll expose you for what you are. it may not mean a whole lot to you, but i'll feel better about it, and so will the *real* frank marino fans.

My response:

Well Brian,

Since you are a fan and you have a site for Frank, I will refrain from typing my initial response and explain to you the truth about everything. Here goes:

1. I am a big fan and have been since 1975.

2. JJazz is not referring to me. He, the same as you have doubts and when Frank himself corresponded with him, JJazz never really believed it was actually Frank and Frank is amazed because they conversed on several occasions. By the way, JJazz is not even a fan, he did a site for college credit and does not maintain it nor answer emails.

3. All questions get forwarded to the real Frank Marino, he sends them back in a bulk email and I send each one back to it's originator. Also, if it is an answer that I know, I will answer it for him per his request. Either way, the return address is from me, but I would never claim it to be from him if it is not. If you get a response that says Frank at the bottom of the answer, it is from him and if it says Willy, it is from me. He is slow in answering at times and loses mail as well. For this, he apologizes.

4. A hoax? Come on Brian, do you really think that I or anyone would devote so much time and energy to a false cause? I don't think so. Maybe Elvis or Lennon, but not Frank! This is not a hoax, I promise.

5. Please expose me for what I am, because what I am is a very dedicated Frank Marino fan that spends way too much time promoting my idol. I am as real as you get when it comes to being a Frank Marino fan.

So there you go. I hope that you reconsider your distrust with me, because you are very wrong my friend.

Send me a question that only Frank would know and I will call him and tell him the situation that has arose here and he will comply in a timely manner. I will not show him your berating of me.

I will accept your forthcoming apology because as I stated above, you are a fan with a site and weneed to trust each other.

Willy

Then I received this email:

this is part of what i was talking about. i write a birthday note to *Frank*, and i get a reply from you...interesting. did frank *authorize* you to intercept my e-mail to him? let me address your responses to my bashing you. the ones that need addressing, anyways A hoax? Come on Brian, do you really think that I or anyone would devote so much time and energy to a false cause? I don't think so. Maybe Elvis or Lennon, but not Frank! This is not a hoax, I promise.

yes, i do think you or anyone else would devote so much time and energy to a false cause. there's a lot of weird people doing a lot of weird thing on the internet. if, by chance, this isn't a hoax, (and i truly hope it's not) then i apologize from the bottom of my heart. don't take this as any kind of apology (yet), because i'm not NEAR convinced this still isn't a sham. answering a birthday note to frank just added fuel to the fire! here's a couple of questions to ponder. why do you even want to convince me this is real? who am i to you? other than some dumbass that sends you nasty e-mail? i couldn't expose you as a hoax even if i DID find out the truth..that was just thrown in there cuz i was mad. okay..enough of that.

Send me a question that only Frank would know and I will call him and tell him the situation that has arose here and he will comply in a timely manner. I will not show him your berating of me.

this remark cracked me up! what the hell question would i have to ask that only frank would know (and you wouldn't)? how are you gonna show him my berating of you? print it and look at it in the mirror? what the hell would he care, even if you did show him? i'm just another dopey guy on the internet with nothing better to do than create a page for a great musician. oh, brother.

bottom line is i admire frank marino. i fell in love with his music the first time i heard him play, and i've been a fan since. if your web site is all it claims to be, i'm happy, and even jealous. but if it's not, well, you've heard how i feel about it.

later, willy

This whole thing to me is childish, but I have to respond when my integrity is challenged. My whole story is posted on this website along with many contributions by Frank Marino himself. I never really thought that someone would think that I made all of this shit up! Unbelievable to think that some people are so paranoid in their life that they question the validity of others.

If your question doesn't get answered or gets answered by me, don't come whining about it, just act professional and express yourself in a mature manner and you will get a lot farther in life. Frank does answer emails, but not all of them and I have no control over what he does, that is if it really is him! (LOL). Just be patient and keep sending the question until you get an answer from him or me. I do answer only stuff that I know and the stuff he won't answer. All answers are from my email address for privacy issues. If it says from Frank, it is from Frank Marino.

Thanx for understanding. Most all of you have been very cordial and I respect that.

 

Willy
