If Frank lived today he wouldn't listen too much of current pop or rock music, because it's mostly shit music. Mabye Mike Patton's work, some avant jazz like Marc Ribot, Zorn and other strange stuff. Mabye Nirvana, Soundgarden...

Btw - I'm from Poland and I'd like to recommend you music of Tymon Tymański - he's guitar, base player, a leader of many bands,vocal. He used to play modern jazz ( with band Miłość he recorded with Lester Bowie) but now he plays fantastic rock music - it's slightly inspirated by Zappa's music, has pastische character.
Check his site - http://www.tymanski.com/

Especially great are records: KURY "P.O.L.O.V.I.R.U.S." and Tymon and the transistors "Wesele'"
you can listen some songs on the site in Polish wersion, or download from soulseek

Well, Zappa did teach his band "Ol' 55."
At anyrate, if Zappa didn't like what Waits was doing back then, I'm sure he would have liked swordfishtrombones and such.

A fairly safe bet would be Les Claypool -- with or without "Primus" -- in many of his many manifestations.

Yes, this is kind of a silly post, but I do believe that Zappa would have liked / respected John Zorn. The way he does things, musically and in a business sense is similar to how Frank ran things.......

You know, I do like Primus, but everytime I put their records on, they annoy the fuck out of me and I wish they had a different vocalist. Great msuicians though.....Strange eh?

They're excellent musicians, Ler has to be one of the most underappreciated professional guitarists around today, he plays some incredibly technical stuff on most Primus albums. Les' vocals are great to my ears, really fits their style, you couldn't have James LaBrie sing that stuff.
