Reminds me my sister knows that goofball with the flare gun. I've told her a few times to write something about it on the Goose, and she's agreed, but the story's been pending for years now. If anyone's interested, he's from Switzerland and dating an ex-FZ groupie who boozes way too much.

Since they know who he is...was he arrested, or have to pay damages, or anything?

I was just thinking in the car today... of all the former Mothers, I would love to meet Mark Volman the most. Even more than Ruth Underwood, and that's saying a lot.


For me, it's either Flo, JCB, Ruthie, or Don Preston, don't ask why, that's just the way it is!

I'd love to meet them all and have met a few,but Roy Estrada would really thrill me.
Gee,I wonder why Mark/Flo doesn't post here anymore? Or any other Mother? In the beginning of his/this thread,it had so much potential. Until..........eye's be rollin' on the concrete fawn - :roll: Isaac.....with a taste of Trendy.

KK, there was another thread where Mark was answering questions and regalling us with stories of the road and his life in the music biz outside of Zappa band. It was flat out awesome, but the great forum crash of 0 whatever erased all that data. He posted this thread as a way of explaining that he wouldn't be on the ZPZ tour as had been announced. I think he was posting here to reconnect with the Zappa world, and also do some promotion of the coming tour, and lost interest in the forum when he realized he wouldn't be on the ZPZ tour.

@ FOWL; Mark/Flo has a cool natural *flow.Always on the humorus & more positive side.I like the way he reminisces.Plus most of his tales were told as one of a kind.The ones that made you get it or picture it. 8) **
To bad I missed it. :cry:
.

* No pun intended I think.
** Pedro 1 just posted a link about Flo'. I'll check that out,until then,
Thanks FOWL & now Pedro 1
Edit:Read it,I like the way Mark Flo's (pun) stories/answers flow,but is it the one that FOWL mentions or another one?Just how many other Mothers have been on Zappa.com?Thanks for the link Pedro1. 8)

Oh wow that's awesome! It's still here! Impressive! It disapeared for a long time, I guess they reuploaded all that data eventually wild. There was another thread as well that he didn't start about the ZPZ tour which is where he first joined the conversation, if anyone is interested, I'm sure that could be found by following his accounts posting history. Great find! thank you so much! I recall him talking about the creation of Billy the Mountain which I found really interesting!

Good question,at the very least the underwriters or insurance co. would want their money back for an obvious (dumb) crimminal act. He would be the responsible party.So whats his name address & phone #? Can you get it Bonny? If there is a statute of limitations,he could do the talk shows,both TV & radio without fear of arrest.Just give us an address or name and he's on his way to fame.
Really,trust me,everyone will want to know how he influenced Deep Purple and their song about the incident and at the same time influencing (sic) MOI and their tour. :evil: :cry:
