Vocalist
    (April 6, 1965- )
    Birth name is Charles Michael Kitridge Thompson IV
    Also known as Black Francis
    Lead singer of The Pixies (1986-1992, 2004)
    Lead singer of Frank Black and the Catholics (1998-)
    Released 'Come On Pilgrim,' 'Surfer Rosa,' 'Doolittle,' 'Bossanova,' 'Trompe Le Monde,' 'Frank Black,' 'Teenager of the Year,' 'The Cult of Ray,' 'Frank Black & the Catholics,' 'Pistolero,' 'Dog in the Sand,' 'Devil's Workshop,' 'Black Letter Days,' and 'Show Me Your Tears'
    He has a weird singing (screaming) voice.
    He developed that singing style after a friend told him to scream the Beatles' song 'Oh Darling' 'like you hate that bitch!'
    He did drugs and smoked.
    He dropped out of college to start the Pixies.
    He had issues with bassist Kim Deal, which led to the band's demise.
    He announced during a radio interview that the Pixies broke up, without consulting with the other band members (he faxed them later that day).
    He inverted his stage name from Black Francis to Frank Black, to make it sound like a real name, yet it wasn't his real name.
    His solo career hasn't been as successful as Deal's.
    He looks like Kyle Gass of Tenacious D., whom interesting enough is paired with Jack Black.
    He is one of the most influential rock singers of the late 80's, and he helped pave the way for the early 90's grunge movement.
    He incorporated surf-rock into his music.
    His song 'Where is My Mind?' is featured in the closing segment of the movie 'Fight Club.'
    He releases his albums rather frequently.
    The main character in the TV series 'Millennium' was named after him.
    He, along with the rest of the Pixies, set aside their differences when they went on a reunion tour (2004).
