Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Fränkische Krankmeldung (The Sick Note)
The Frankenbarde is in reality an airline pilot, real name Martin O'Connor. On the CD featuring The Fränkish Krankmeldung he thanks Pat Cooksey for permission to use the song. As the Franconian dialect is not widely understood in the rest of Germany it's amazing that well over 200,000 people have played it on Youtube.
