News: The Flames website is back online

The Flames website, which is dedicated to the members and the music of South African band The Flames, renamed The Flame after moving to the USA, is now back online after requests from many of you. Singer/songwriter Michelle Schmitt who regularly features on these pages made a plea to which I decided to listen. She is fortunate to count Ricky Fataar among her musicians/friends. It is to them I dedicate this revived website, with love and affection. Shown below is a picture of Michelle Schmitt and her band, with Ricky Fataar holding the guitar.
