I know, that's why I asked. It came to me in my "Zappa" Google Alert yesterday!  I thought it DID sound like something FZ would say, so I put it to the experts hoping someone could confirm.  Anyone else got any idea?

The wooden leg quote or the one I actually enquired about? I didn't think the wooden leg one was disputed - are you saying Frank copied it from Steve Martin when he said it?  I'm confused.<br><br>Did Frank say "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture" or was it Elvis Costello, or some other dude? Anyone?
