Frank would have shunned this medium like the plague! It is too much like the ol' CB.  Too much BS input I would think. He wouldn't have needed the input of every trailer-trash 3-way for his  inspiration!

I think Frank would have found it a convenient and expedient means to instantly get out to his fans whatever was on his mind at the time without having to fuck around with interviewers and other middle men.

I really don't know,none of us will;but the way he loved anything that made a sound ,or furthered that sound for his own musical taste,I say yes! Remember if Z-Studios had not been destroyed......Well FZ would have had an Oscar or.......10 10 10 9.5 10 10. The 9.5 from the French judge! :wink: :mrgreen:

He basically predicted the online album subscription service 20 years ago.  He talked about streaming whole albums into people's homes so he didn't have to deal with traditional stores.  At the time he was suggesting it over cable TV lines.  He only lamented the loss of the cover art for a complete package.  I'd quote him directly, but I've read tons of his interviews recently and don't remember where I saw it.<br>


True dat. He would have embraced this medium as a way to say FUCK YOU RECORDING INDUSTRY. I doubt he'd be active in a forum like this for more than a few laughs and he probably would have written some great tunes about it.

I think the forum would be a different place if FZ participated in it, no matter how sporadically. Than again the whole world would be different.

Not only would FZ have used the internet, being that he was he,and he lived in Calif I would hypothesize that the Internet would either be a vastly different animal than what we have today, or FZ would have been quicker off the mark than the movers that are established. Mr Zappa's skill would have been to find those technically able to implimet his idea's. He is truly a loss to mankind.

Why? When you have Gail and the Kids. :wink:
He was already into digital music and worked hard to make his music heard with the best of modern equipment available.But yes FZ would have used anything to help him hear what was in his head! Wouldn't you?
Even If it was conversing on the Forum :roll: :mrgreen:
