About Me

Hello my friends! Experience with writing two other blogs for others finally inspired me to do my own. Maybe I have something relevant to say, maybe I really don’t. I do know I will try.

I have entered that realm of “middle-age”, and although it took a while, today I accept that as a fact and embrace it. All it really means is I have more experience in certain areas than others. I still make mistakes, but I guarantee that I continue to put one foot in front of another and keep working hard. Life is too good not to do so.

I love music, live concerts, Fellowship, writing, amateur wrestling, baseball, reading, good coffee and good friends. I admire honesty, a strong work ethic, accountability and the desire to change. A wise man once told me, “Whining is an Offspring of Futility”. You were right Big Red.

I hope you enjoy the journey through The Musings of Frank Gallardo.

    I always thought when you started your own blog it would be called, “What the Frank?”

    LOL! Although I may rename it now “Really?”

    Hey coach, how have you been? I was driving down Dunlap, by the “farm” before 7th Ave and thought, “I wonder what coach Gallardo is up to?” Good ol’ Google led me here. Hope all is well!

      Thanks Max! “Retired” so to speak from coaching, firmly ensconced in the corporate world at American Express now and loving it. Amazing how a search engine can actually help you find someone nowadays. I hope you’re doing well.

    Hi tfronky, your musings and music archive is fabulous and far reaching, I am involved in the writing of a book covering the years at Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow since Simple Minds first played the re-opening from a ballroom to a music venue and right up to date. Your covering of Big Country at the New Years concert was great and the video’s superb. Do you have any personal memories of Barrowland or quotes from the bands?. Thanks.

      Hi Monty, thanks for taking the time to comment! I wish I could be a resource for you but I live in the U.S. and have never seen a show at Barrowland Ballroom. That Big Country concert is a show I saw on MTV when I was in high school. Good luck with that book and keep me updated, would love to read it!
