"Take the Kama Sutra. How many people died from the Kama Sutra as opposed to the Bible? Who wins?"<br><br>"...I  can sing only about an octave, with 75% to 80% pitch accuracy. Let's be honest about it, friends 'n neighbors: with specs like that, I couldn't even pass an audition to get in my own band."<br><br>"My lyrics are dumb. So what?"<br><br>"To be able to write a piece of music and hear it in your head is a completely different sensation from the ordinary listening experience."

My favorite of Frank's quotes is either the quote from "Jewish Princess" in "Catholic Girls" or the quote from "Sinister Footwear" in "Wild Love".

May your shit come to life and kiss you on the face.<br><br>For some real personal satisfaction, try yelling out your own names.<br><br>Producing satire is kind of hopeless because of the literacy rate of the American public.<br><br>The people of your century no longer require the service of composers.<br>A composer is as useful to a person in a jogging suit as a dinsoaur turd in the middle of his runway.<br><br>Here I stand hoping against hope that it's a chick with a low voice.

I like this one...<br><br>PERSON: "So, Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?"<br><br>FZ: "You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?"<br><br>Wish I knew what interview that was from.

I saw this in a photo of FZ and he was wearing a badge that said "YOU COME FIRST".<br>Appart from the obvious sexual connetations I like the abiguous nature of that statemant.<br>It doesn't say "I COME FIRST". Rather "YOU" or perhaps it's a collective "YOU". Either way doesn't matter but "What the Fuck..."<br><br>I'm sure if Frank were still with us he'd be saying...<br><br>"The nect time George W Bush is on the television, sit your child down in front of it and tell him 'If that man offers you candy, wants you to get in his car or tells you to go and fight in Iraq tell him NO!!

I'm thinkin' that it's either:<br><br>"Information is not knowledge<br>Knowledge is not wisdom<br>Wisdom is not truth<br>Truth is not beauty<br>Beauty is not music<br>Music is the best"<br><br>(i think i got that right...)<br><br>or  "Revolution is just this year's flower power."

When Ben Watson asked FZ what he thought about academics studying his music and lyrical subject matter he said:<br><br>"I think they should get a real estate license."<br><br>

I like:<br><br>"Zank you very much." <br><br>After hearing Tinseltown Rebellion I started saying that too. He says that quote four times on the album.
