Didn't FZ say that most people wouldn't know good music if it came up and bit them on the ass? I like that quote.

[quote author=fz link=board=quotes;num=1061507225;start=0#3 date=downbeat mag, oct. '69]<br>Frank Zappa: I don't think the typical rock fan is smart enough to know he's been duped, so it doesn't make any difference ...Those kids wouldn't know good music if it came up and bit them on the ass. Especially in terms of a live concert where the main element is visual. Kids go to see their favorite acts, not to hear them. We work on the premise that nobody really hears what we do anyway, so it doesn't make any difference if we play a place that's got ugly acoustics. The best responses we get from an audience are when we do our worst material.<br>Preston: Oh, how can you say that?<br>Zappa: It's true man. "Louie Louie" brings the house down every time.<br>Preston: People were booing the last time you played that. One guy wanted "Louie Louie", so you said "Okay, we'll play "Louie Louie""... "Boo!"<br>Zappa: Maybe they were booing because we didn't play Midnight Hour instead. [/quote]<br><br>from the zappa/louie-louie page[sub]Image[/sub] <br>
