Premonition To Show Off Its Scars

Here's an article from the Northwest Indiana Times on Premonition lead singer, Frank Spears:

Though heavy metal generally gets bashed as being the music of the devil, the wild-eyed and heavily-tattooed lead singer of dark metal group Premonition has been an angel to many people over the years.

By night he stalks stages as Tattoo Frank, one of the most well-known metal frontmen to ever scream his way to celebrity in region clubs. By day, he is Frank Spears, a savior to folks battling the demons of alcohol and drugs. A long-time substance abuse counselor, Spears now is an admissions supervisor for those seeking release from addiction.

"If they are ready to set their lives straight, people can call me anytime at 1-800-41-SOBER," challenged Spears. "There IS hope and there ARE people to help, but you just have to want it."

Though the Hammond native has been singing since discovering Ozzy Osbourne at age 6, he did not form his first band -- Shattered Image -- until he was 14 years old.

It was in the early 1990s after forming Black Sabbath tribute band Scarred that Tattoo Frank made his name. In Scarred, Spears sported garish black make-up and arrived onstage in a coffin.
