At this very moment on stage we have drummer A playing in 7/8, drummer B playing in 3/4, the bass playing in 3/4, the organ playing in 5/8, the tambourine playing in 3/4, and the alto sax blowing his nose

Ahhh those late nights at Samareau!!!!

Has anyone seen the preview to the "roxy and elsewhere" d.v.d thats coming out? Looks pretty damn good. Zappa best band in my opinion even if they apparently weren't fun to be around.

Interview: I think if you wanted to make top ten records and sell millions of albums you could.

sometimes you can't write a chord ugly enough to say what you feel, so you have to rely on a giraffe filled with whipped cream

Since I haven't clue what you are all prattling on about I thought I would try Zoot's link but some woman told me they could not bring me the program I had requested. Come on Zoot. Sober up and give us the correct info.

Hi Teddy I'm sorry to have sent you up the garden path, it looks as though it's been removed.

Youtube has a few clips:

Zappa being harranged on the Crossfire programe.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ISil7IHzxc

Inca Roads
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFHSk_lEeHk
This shows what an awesome band he could put together and also we get to see his guitar technique, what we would call keen but no wrist.
As you will hear Frank was also not afraid of the 5 minute guitar solo.

Tomfoolery with Montana
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp7S7SI0flQ

Religion

Love

"You don't have the slightest understanding of the difference between
government action and private action, and you have certainly destroyed
any case you might otherwise have had with this Senator --"
(Senator Gorton)


To which Frank Zappa responds with
"Is this private action?"
