Why Frank Zappa is up there with Hendrix and Clapton - and better than either.

Zappa writing about Reagan and Nicaragua:
”We have just spent eight years being governed by dorks who acted like building a wall around Texas to ward off Sandinistas marching up through Mexico could bea super-bitchen strategic idea.”

Zappa was a libertarian, not a Republican.

If you are any kind of REAL Zappa fan youget this
https://www.amazon.com/Roxy-Performance ... rformances

It has nearly all of the material distilled into the Roxy and Elsewhere album. 7 discs. But you still need the original as it has the Elsewhere few tracks.

One disc has the Roxy band redoing the Yellow Snow suite in the studio. It’s amusing.

There are clips of this fun at the end of Roxy the movie. At the end credits.

Zappa does not play the organ, just all the other stuff. Paul Buff, studio owner, is on organ and his wife Allison on vocals. It's from very early 60s. Zappa and Buff produced some surf instrumentals for other bands.

What would Zappa say about Trump? I have not found actual words on Trump, but we can extrapolate from Reagan related stuff:
Few Moments With Brother A. West 4:01
Previous | Top | Notes & Comments | Songlist | Next
(Brother A. West & FZ)

guest vocalist: Brother A. West

Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA
February 14, 1988

Thank you very much, Mr. Zappa.

Ah, I'm very pleased to be here on behalf of the Administration—the most powerful government in the world. And, uh, Mr. Fitzwater invited me to come here tonight to create some balance, because there has been some things done by Mr. Zappa that I think are unfair to our country.

I think, from the beginning, to say that this is going to be balanced, when he has this lingerie up here, and makin' fun of children's toys, as a beginning, if this is what he has in mind, I think he's wrong.

It's people like Mr. Frank Zappa that kept the Senate from being able to send ARMS to the DEMOCRATIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN NICARAGUA! And I, for one, am headin' down there myself, as soon as I finish up here tonight.

And I want the elected official, Mr. Charlie Sanders, the Democrat, to remember that "Democrat" begins with a "D," just like DEMON! And we'll remember you, friend, when it comes votin' time. And Margaret Boyd and Carmen Bellacord, despite his foreign name, did some help to back some things up.

Friends, these forms cost money. And this money could be going towards a more powerful military; this money could be going towards driving out the illegal aliens. And instead, Mr. Zappa wants to have a bunch of young, uninformed 18 to 21-year-olds votin' here, and spendin' your money.

And I just want you to know that tonight, I love him anyway. Because I've got love in my heart, and I'm not afraid of the fact that he's turned this into some kind of zoo up here.

Sunday— That's not fair, Mr. Zappa.

Sunday night used to be a night in which Americans would get together. They'd go to their place of worship, and they would share. And I don't know why, on this night which is supposed to be Valentine's night, there aren't more people that have a heart that have a love affair with America. But instead, they're here on Sunday night, worshipping this man who's demon-possessed!

I ask you, Mr. Frank Zappa, what kind of man can name a child Moon Unit? What kind of man can name a child Weasel? What kind of man can name a child Omen? To me, it defies the logic.

And I'm comin' here tonight because I want to share with him, just the same way we're going to give spirit power to the democratic freedom fighters down there, our brothers that wanna have the freedom to be able to have a man like Pat Robertson, to have a man like Mr. Dole, restore America!

And I'm gonna ask the power and the joy of the power of the living king of kings. And a lot of you here, you smut-minded, musical people say, "King of kings, that must be Elvis."

Now, I'm gonna ask for the power,
I'm gonna ask for the glory.
I'm gonna now, I'm gonna tell you a story.
I'm gonna drive out the demons, friends.
I'm gonna ask you help this badness end.
Come on Frank, let's have a story.
Come on there 'n share the glory.
Do you feel the power? Come on, put out the negativity . . .

Dweezil, who never sings, at 16 and Moon a couple of years older. He squezed in some Van Halen tapping in there. A pop song with tapping.

He may not be the original talent his father was but he is more versatile I would say - guitar wise.

Well, he’s had more time to concentrate on that. Frank was a fine rhythm guitarist as well as his personal soloing era. The first 3 albums were his guitar work. On the Helsinki live set he was an integral part of every song on stage. Then he hired ”stunt guitarists” and rhythm guitarists. Zappa played piano mostly one handed. He did drum quite well.
