Gerard too has left his daughter Bandit, slightly older than Frank’s girls, behind. Unlike Frank, though, he hasn’t quite got to grips with the technology involved in seeing her yet.
“I’m going to have to go figure out this whole Skype thing because I don’t really know how to do that yet,” he says. “I suppose I’ve had more time than Frank to prepare for not being with my family, but it’s still hard to be completely ready for that first time you leave. But when she’s older, she’ll get to come to the shows. I’ll bring her out on stage with those big ass headphones. Or she can start a band with Frank’s kids. They’ve all got crazy enough names to be in a band, right?”
