As a producer Frank has been working since the 70s when he began with The Scorpions 2nd album, Fly to the Rainbow.

In his spare time Frank enjoys watching good films and reading interesting books, along with keeping in shape and loves travelling to sites of historical events of the past.
What Brings You Happiness?
I consider myself lucky to be able to spend my life in partnership with such a wonderful woman. Making music means a lot to me, being able to reach out to so many people from all over the world with my music and my band ELOY. It also gives me pleasure to offer young artists and bands creative support and to promote their career. My company Artist Station Records with its different divisions which include a publishing house and label with innovative and modern structures, which provides an excellent platform for highly effective artist development. What’s more, for production of any kind I have the well-known Horus Studio with the best equipment available to me, where I can realize my artistic ideas without compromise. All this gives me enormous pleasure.
What Would You Change (If You Could) To Make Our World A Better Place? I would ensure that discrimination on the basis of peoples colour, culture or religion disappears forever. At the same time I would get rid of any form of violence and oppression against defenceless minorities. I would protect global human rights without any compromise or restriction. I would oppose the economic exploitation of those dependant groups of the population with determination and ensure that our planet no longer be destroyed by unscrupulous profiteering.
I would reject questionable technologies which endanger our planet.
I would replace political grandeur and abuse of power with sophisticated well-thought-out effective rules and regulations.
For a better understanding of different cultures towards each other I would push towards exchanges in order to create positive and peaceful relations where all strive towards the best possible living conditions so that our planet is free from misery or any existential threats. I would also like to create global laws with authorization of a global executive which would severely punish any crimes whether they are violent or fraudulent due to the misuse of political power or economic ruthlessness.
