You all know that Zappa didn't like school.<br><br>Hi there anyway!<br><br>But Now I am listening to some interviews with Captain Beefheart and the interviewer asked him about the time when he grew up with Zappa and suddenly the Captain said:"Frank went to school, i told him not to but he did anyway."<br><br>Pretty interesting if you think back to what Frank said about school.<br><br>Here is the link to the site, it is the Dr Demento interview:<br><br>http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/jfiles/files/s235123.htm<br><br> -/dr_grogg<br><br>

I had no interest in higher education, but after finishing high school it occurred to that if I wasn't in school, I wasn't going to meet any – so, I 'reenlisted.'" (From The Real Frank Zappa Book).   :D<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>Yeah, i borrowed another Zappa bio (by Miles) that Zappa said something like that.<br><br> -/dr_grogg<br><br><br>
