We know that Frank wasnt much of an Elvis fan
but he's quoted as saying he really only liked one
of his songs? any diehard FZ fans capable of telling
me which song ?


regards from Adelaide, South Australia

... and in order to prove he’s really a cool guy and not merely
an M.C., naturally he has to join in with the band and sing a
couple Elvis Presley numbers. Well, a-one for the money and all that shit.

Zappa discusses Presley on track 2 at this source: [url]
http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/675 ... c19756/m1/[/url].

Frank discusses an amusing proposal he tried to get to Elvis, which would have involved Elvis' performing "Hound Dog". But I wouldn't call it a ringing endorsement.

He also was supposedly the inspiration for the song Help I'm a Rock.
