Yeah, maybe you're right, but it's been attributed to him (anyway, it is a hell of a quote):

Father Oblivion, so where is this Frank-Zappa-Strasse? Berlin or Prague??? And is there a picture of the street sign anywhere?

I enjoy doing anything that is theoretically impossible, and making it work. I mean, you saw some things on stage that were impossible and didn't even know it. If you saw what that music was that they were playing, if you saw it on paper and realized these guys were out there doing it with choreography and kind of dancing all over the stage – that was some of the hardest shit anybody in a symphony orchestra would ever be asked to play. They're dancing around and fucking doing it from memory. There's not an orchestra in the world that could have done that.
- 1981.
