After trying out guitarists for several months, Society 1
has just announced they have found a new guitarist. Los Angeles native, Eric Franklin
will be joining Matt "The Lord" Zane, Dirt, and Sic Rik on guitars.
Raised by his parents on Beethoven, Bach and the Star Wars Soundtrack, guitarist Eric Franklin
started his musical journey on the piano at age six. Taught by Juilliard graduate Emilia Guastella, Eric studied classical music for 6 years.
By the age of 12 however, hearing the sounds of Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Guns N? Roses and Led Zeppelin blast from his sister's stereo, Eric
eventually craved to learn music of a louder persuasion and his longing to play the guitar could not be stopped. Eric
's first public show will be on Dave Navarro's Spread Entertainment which will air Aug 8 on maniatv.com.
