Magic Strings of Frankie Presto

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto: A Novel - Mitch Albom

"All humans are musical. Why else would the Lord give you a beating heart?"


Since the dawn of time, people have used music for everything: a cry for battle; a victory after a battle; to sooth a crying baby; to uplift ones spirit; to showcase how much one loves another and so on and so forth. Music always has meaning. Even if it's just the sound of someone plucking an old guitar, there is meaning behind what we hear.


And to Frankie Presto, sound means more than what we hear.


Frankie Presto is a huge successful musician. Well, he was. Frankie just passed away in a weird unexplained death onstage at a concert. Interviews at the funeral of his friends, family and acquaintances about how they met Frankie and what part in their lives was touched by Frankie himself or of his music. Many believed that Frankie just had that touch. That gift of sliding from one note to the next with such fluid motion that only a few guitar players have.


What if it was more than that?


What if it wasn't just him playing the guitar?


What if the reason you are so touched by this, it's because there is more at play here than just one man?


Follow the interviews and follow Music as Music takes you through the life of Frankie

Presto and how he became the person everyone loved.
