Legendary Italian-Canadian guitarist Frank Marino has just announced his retirement from touring and possibly from all things related to his career … Marino, well known from his works as Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush in the past decades, is facing health issues, so he posted an announcement on Facebook, as follows:
From Frank Marino:
With sorrow I am forced to announce my immediate retirement from touring, and possibly all things related to continuing my career, due to an unexpected and debilitating medical condition which makes it impossible for me to tour. I want to thank all the people who supported me all of the last half-century. I know that many were looking forward to seeing us play this fall and I was looking forward to getting out again and doing more shows, but it now appears that in the absence of a miraculous recovery, my Concert DVD (Live at the Agora) will constitute the last show I will ever have played. I ask any that are believers to include me in their prayers.
