The greatest composer, satirist, musical genius died.

I have a very busy day today but I'll do my best to cram in plenty of music. At the very least I'll play CWRATJ, UM, W/J, SY & CP3!!

But between now and the 21st I shall listen to every bit of music of his I can get my hands on including stuff he produced like Beefheart and the real Ruben and the jets.

Hope everyone isn't too depressed today!

Rest In Peace as we remember you on this day. Thank you for the wonderful music you gave us to enjoy.

Long live Frank! Thank you for composing some of the best music in the XX century! Let's play Burnt Weeny Sandwich, which I think is the most emotional record of his. :cry:

It's Zappadan for those who can. The order has already been picked. I should hit Burnt Weeny tomorrow morning. It really doesn't matter how you choose to remember him, just remember. :wink:

Frank Zappa was the greatest composer, musician, guitar player, social commentator and satirist to have ever lived. 21 years and it still knocks me out that he's not here with us any longer. Will anyone ever top his accomplishments? I think the answer is no...
