Interview With Freaky Franz

MP3:Freaky Franz-Karl Malone

Freaky Franz aka Franz Lyons is a funny dude. The Columbus skateboarder will disappear for about a month. Then someone will slide you a fashion mag, and he will be modeling. Or you will catch wind he is on tour with Trapped Under Ice. Or He will just appear in a MIA/RYE RYE video.

Anyway, he currently has a local hit poppin’ with his song about getting that mail, Karl Malone.
