The Frank Ocean/Frank Gorshin Connection That Everyone is Talking About
In a response to a direct question during an interview with Val Fever on WTWK Thwack FM in Long Branch, singer/songwriter Frank Ocean (born Christopher Edwin Breaux) revealed the origin of his stage name, describing his fondness for actor Frank Gorshin, who portrayed the villainous Riddler on the original "Batman" TV series.
"I just wanted to remind people of two things that, to me, signify the best of everything," Ocean explained. "Frank Gorshin, and large bodies of water. Frank Ocean. It was literally perfect."
