    Have people heard of this dude before? ive heard of him, but never really looked him up. Now his storys a film with Paul Kaye based on the rise an fall of Veteran superstar DJ, who lost his hearing overnight, but still went onto dj at Pascha later on by using a technique of jus using the vibrations of a speaker to mix with! wow!

    info on the film an Frankies story:

    Tragic story, but im sure itll be highly entertaining if Paul Kaye aka Dennis Penis

    its a well known technique for people who are hearing impaired but are still involved with music, its mainly used by dancers who use it to keep their rhythm when dancing, but this guy has obviously applied it to something else. big up.

    Beethoven composed though deaf... but he knew exactly what each note would sound like.

    Thing is with Frankie White, I guess he could only play tunes he knew and remembered, not new ones... its not like somebody could describe to him what the song was like - easily that is - "There's a 4x4 hi-hat that disappears on the 16 beat after the bass line comes in..."
