MuzicNotez: How do you go about writing your music?
- Les Fradkin: Our music comes to us relatively quickly, almost instantly. We seem to be blessed with a knack for knowing what a hit hook is. We’ve written songs while driving in the car while flying in an airplane while sailing on a cruise ship or while eating breakfast lunch or dinner. Even while Walking on the beach!
