Franky was born in Andernach/ Germany on August 24, 1972.Even though he started taking trumpet lessons first at the age of 5, everyone who has been to a VAMPIRE show knows that this man belongs on the drums. Jon Bonham is one of his favourite musicians and following his example, Franky gives VAMPIRE the beat.
IfFranky is left alone on stage together with Marq every event organizer should be warned. It might be possible that the closing time will be exceeded, because if the two of them were to do what they wanted, they would still be standing on that stage for breakfast philosophizing about life.
Recently Franky has also been seen (and heard) singing the popular German Schlager song "Ein Stern" by Nick P. while René filled in for him on the drums.
