Biography

Frank Irving Lopes was born in ARUBA (Caribbean Island). His music Headquarters is in Groningen (The Netherlands). He is a solo artist: show-guitarist, vocalist, entertainer, arranger, composer and creator of a new music-style called GUITARCONQ.

GUITARCONQ is universal, that's why you can hear some influences of dance-hall-rock, soul-underground, blues, jazz-rock, soka, reggae, latin, and some other musicstyles in his music. This is his soloproject, with all compositions of his own. Frank has fantastic musicians to accompany him at the live performances. The name of the band is:

"GUITARCONQ FRANKY LOPES”

Conq is in the first part of the Spanish word Conquistador, (that's Conqueror in English). His big dream is to become world famous as the Guitarconqueror. The guitar is his favourite instrument and he plays it with a lot of passion and conviction. When you hear Franky Lopes for the first time, it just takes that one note and BANG!!! You'll never forget it. It's super and is printed on your soul for life. Franky is a showguitarist with a lot of gimmicks and he moves all over the stage in a certain trance and hysteria. Franky's voice sounds like a percussion instrument; briljant and original.

Franky was influenced by many very good artists and musicians. A few of them are the following:

ROCK:
Jimi Hendrix (Experience), Eric Clapton (Cream), Johnny Winter, Carlos Santana,
Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) etc. etc.

LATIN-JAZZ-ROCK:
Willy Colon, Tito Puente, Arturo Sandoval, Chick Corea, Herby Hancock etc. etc.

BLUES:
B.B. King, Albert King, Freddy King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker,
John Mayall, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Mike Bloomfield, Eelco Gelling and many other blues giants.

Frank plays a guitar from the heart to the heart, there's nothing like that on this planet. He makes a guitar sing like no one else. He is very limber, energetic and always gives a spectacular show while playing the guitar. Franky loves glamour and wears beautiful costumes during the performances.

Franky shares a special magic and communication with his audience, which makes people feel united with one love, one family and one spirit. This happens through his creative music and guitarplaying. A master interplay between his passionate almost spiritually gentle guitar-play, and a raw, wild feeling and timing, matched by Franky's evocative, finger-fed intonations, is a measure of his utterly remarkable mastership of the instrument.

Lyrics

It’s everything or nothing
© Frank I. Lopes

It’s everything or nothing (4x)

Life could be so fine…. If you know how to take the pressure of time
The experience of everyday…. No more strumbling blocks on my way

Even if you fail again…. You may want to give up through the pain
Form a new starting place…. For the future creating space

Looking forward, to a time of greater circumstances
Don’t you worry, about the things people talk about
We are part of the new generation, riding on
No more waiste of time! Chohhhhh!!!

It’s everything or nothing (4x)

Nature is what we see…. But for how long is it gonna be
The results of everything…. Is what you believe, you’re gonna dye or live

Even if you fail again…. You may want to give up through the pain
Form a new starting place…. For the future creating space

Looking forward, to a time of greater circumstances
Don’t you worry, about the things people talk about
We are part of the new generation, riding on
No more waiste of time! Chohhhhh!!!

It’s everything or nothing (4x)

Try it again

Try it again
© Frank I. Lopes

I don’t know when it’s going to come,,,,but I know that some day we’ll be one
When I miss what I try to get,,,,I don’t have to worry, nor regret
It’s like falling and standing up,,,,so I tell myself don’t give it up
I just want to be all the time,,,,living in this world just feeling fine

It’s just a matter of trying,,,,that’s what I do instead of crying
With a little hope there’s a future,,,,let’s try it again together
Try it again,,,try it again,,,,,try it again,,,,,,,,,try it again,)
Try it again… Everybody!! ) 3x
Try it again….Once again now! )

Anything that you long to do,,,,could be not so common, but it’s true
Work on it till you have no doubt,,,,then you’ll know, just what it’s all about
It’s like loosing a game today,,,,but you’ll try it again in a different way
If you know how to keep up faith,,,,everything you do will work out straight

It’s just a matter of trying,,,,that’s what I do instead of crying
With a little hope there’s a future,,,,let’s try it again together
Try it again,,,try it again,,,,,try it again,,,,,,,,,try it again,)
Try it again… Everybody!! ) 3x
Try it again….Once again now! )

I don’t know when it’s going to come,,,,but I know that some day we’ll be one
When I miss what I try to get,,,,I don’t have to worry, nor regret
It’s like falling and standing up,,,,so I tell myself don’t give it up
I just want to be all the time,,,,living in this world just feeling fine

It’s just a matter of trying,,,,that’s what I do instead of crying
With a little hope there’s a future,,,,let’s try it again together
Try it again,,,try it again,,,,,try it again,,,,,,,,,try it again, )
