Frankies Hair Tonic Limited Edition Gocco Print by John D-C

Elvis Aaron Frankenstein was a singer and actor who could arguably neither sing nor act. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as Frankie and is also sometimes referred to as The Modern Prometheus of Rock 'n' Roll. During the height of his film career Frankie's image was used to sell everything from lightning rods to platform shoes and as seen here in this early advert his own line of hair care products. He starred in a total of 31 films including: Love Meat Tender, Fear in Acapulco, Harum Scare'em, A.I. Blues, All Sewn Up, Flaming Torch, Laboratory Rock, Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls, Paradise Transylvanian Style, Follow That Brains, Killin' Cousins, Ghoul Happy, Undead In The Country, Brainbake, Stay Away Monster, Live A Little Die A Little, The Trouble With Ghouls, Viva Las Vengeance, Blue Transylvania, Scareway, The Bride of Frankie & Johnny and It Happened At A Burning Mill. Sadly, health problems, prescription drug dependence and angry mobs of peasants with fire torches plagued the star in his later life leading to his untimely death at an early age.

Frankies Hair Tonic is a limited edition hand-printed, 4 colour gocco print (fluoro green, custom green, custom purple and black on an off white card stock) which is hand numbered and embossed.
