Can anyone refer me to exactly where Frank is quoted saying: "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture." Publication and date published would be of interest.

I remember that topic showing up not too long ago in this thread:

http://www.zappa.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.p ... highlight=

... but sources seem to be divided on whether Zappa or Steve Martin gets credit for the quote. I remember doing a Google search on your very same question and it was attributed to Steve Martin. Not that I trust everything I read on the internet.

I've also heard the quote attributed to Laurie Anderson.

Sorry to add to the confusion!
