Buckethead, do you like Adrian Baker's "Sherry"? Isn't he really good at imitating Frankie's cool falsetto? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qzIXfm-tkM

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

Pom pom generation thinks The Baby boomers can't hopscotch into admitting that they're ANYthing BUT cool & the boom they represent is archaic thing by now.

He does sound very much like Frankie in his prime. I'm not a fan of Frankie's falsetto, though. I do really like his few non-falsetto songs.

Which non-falsetto songs? & who's your favorite falsettist?

Distinguishing between his singing toward the top of his range and a true falsetto here, I offer December, 1963, My Eyes Adored You, and my favorite Frankie song, Can't Take My Eyes Off You. I find his falsetto much too whiney. Brian's falsetto, to my ears, is the most pleasing. I also like Maurice Gibb's falsetto, which is typically heard only in some of the BG's harmonic blends (see their performance of Nights on Broadway on the Midnight Special). Barry's was OK, although  bit reachy and overused, and Robin had a gorgeous vibrato.

Gary Brooker of Procol Harum  still sounds good. He is such an underrated musician-composer.

I agree, if YouTube is any indication.
