    Am I the only one under 30 that likes him? Or I guess the better question would be, am I the only person on the planet that likes him? I've heard that during his career he released more than 60! albums! 60! SIXTY!

    No you are not, I work as a percussion instructor for an area HS and have turned several people into zappa fans. I suggest albums to them all the time, my favorite is best band you never heard. Wish they would have recorded more concerts. I truley miss his music

    Dreamed I was an eskimo...


    Was a hundred degrees below 100.... and my mama cried, and my mama cried

    (Nanook of the North, don't be a naughty eskimo)

    Well I turned around and I said "oh, oh... and the northern lights commenced a glow".

    WATCH OUT WHERE THE HUSKIES GO, AND DON'T YOU EAT THAT YELLOW SNOW



    I'm slightly over 30, but can play Peaches on 3 instruments... if that counts.


    Zappa is that rare American phenomena... that most American's don't get. Germans love David Hasselhoff and the Scandanavians love Zappa..... yet vastly underappreciated (can Hasselholf be underappreciated, if his talent is near zil??... it must be the dark dress socks the Germans wear on the riveria... must be me)... I hear Catherine Zeta-Jones was a total clown in the UK, but made it big here. Go figure. She's married to a sex-addict who has his own private room at Mitchell Brothers... ;-)

    *cough*

    The main fan-base for the Hoff over here is a certain genre of middle-aged women with a profound love of schmaltz... the German equivalent of those who fawn over Cliff Richard in the UK. It is dreadful when these same blue-rinsed women turn up at the beach in their dark socks and sandals though. :tongue: :rolleyes:

    I have to reluctantly admit I am also a Zappa fan, despite his (not-so-subtle) homophobia. There you have it. He was a musical and lyrical genius. While a lot of folks thought he just wrote funny nonsense lyrics, they were actually quite the sociopolitical comments.

    By the way, he should have been punished severerly for naming his children Moon Unit and Dweezil.

    For a while, I would include the song "Flakes" at the end of all the mixed tapes and cd compilations I made for people. I eventually stopped putting the name of the song on the tracklist, and stuck it on there as a steamy lil surprise.

    I don't think anyone ever appreciated it, but it sure made me giggle.

    Sorry for the double post, but he ddnt actually "name" his son Dweezil, The hospital his son was born at wouldn't put Dweezxil on the birth certificate, so they hadta change it later.
