Frankie brought the 'toughness' to the sound - I think Jim would need someone who could fulfil that role and keep it more focussed than the stuff he writes for POL (or even on the Crossroads Moment album, which I love). I know Jim's happy being able to write for/with different artists and has been for years.

And am I right in thinking JJ and JP aren't speaking to each other again? There was talk of a follow up to CM for a while... and then Jimi's back with Frankie. Can't see Frankie letting Jimi do another album with Peterik as long as he's part of Survivor (and my guess is that that's a contractual/financial arrangement given Jimi's comments when he left Survivor after Reach re. Frankie being "the devil".)
