I've been trying to find it. I'm pretty sure it was drawn right after Frank died for the New Yorker. I'm sure Robert was commissioned to do it but do you think he at least respected Frank? I doubt he liked his music (Robert likes almost strictly older music) but they seemed to both share the same politics and ideas. I've always thought that R. Crumb's late 60's tales of living amongst the hippies shared similar themes with WOIIFTM.

Just last year I discovered R Crumb's Cheap Suit Serenaders at a Q & A with Terry Zwigoff for the Crumb doc that he directed (he was one of the original Serenaders). Do you have any of the Cheap Suit Serenaders' 78s or lps? The lps themselves make an appearance in Ghost World (another movie Terry Zwigoff directed).

I have an master audience recording of the Suits at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA (1992?). They used to play once a year. Crumb was not in attendance, but Wavy Gravy was in the audience, woopee! Favorites are "Singing in the Bathtub" and "Persian Rug", plus any slackstring Hawiian tunes. Great stuff, especially when they break out the musical saws.

Crumb's later collaborations with Dominique Cravic et al in the band Les Primitifs du Futur are totally smokin'. Jazzy, bluesy...hot (as in early Louie Armstrong) syncopation.

I just recently bought a Crumb book that is a loose bio with a shitload of his artwork. Great stuff. There definitely was some shared ideals between Robert and Frank. Kindred spirits. 8)

i know that i posted this somewhere else on the forum, but as a young(er) artist, two of the people that had the greatest influence on my decision to persue artistic endevors (please excuse my spelling) are FZ and R. crumb. i have never been able to watch the crumb movie without picking up my pencils or pens. similarly, i can rarely listen to a zappa disc and not pick up my guitar or sit down at my keys.

when i discovered the lead sheet for king kong and uncle meat in the cd package, i found the first copier that i could enlarge the type on so that i could actually read it, got it enlarged ran home and sat at the keys and figured it out ( i can't sight read music) then, i transposed it to my guitar. my friend, the guitar teacher, was very jealous !!!

anyway, FZ and Crumb did art their way, the rest of the world be damned, (fuck you if you don't like my hat) they were, to me the stars by which i navigate all my creative out put.

http://www.hakes.com/search.asp?CategoryCode=205_0&Criteria=zappa&SearchFor=Auctions
Hake's Americana auction is online now and ends Nov. 19-21 with this art available from http://www.hakes.com.
Description as follows:
11-7/8x16" mat has three openings, one for clipped title of the Nov. 11, 1991 issue of "The New Yorker" magazine, the other w/text block mentioning that Frank Zappa's 50th Birthday would be celebrated at The Ritz, which was owned by John Scher at the time. Center 6.25x7.5" opening contains original pen and ink art of Frank Zappa by noted underground comix artist Robert Crumb. Image area measures 3.5x4-7/8" and has Zappa's name underneath, hand-lettered by Crumb, who has signed and dated art "- R. Crumb '91" at lower right. While mat has faded w/age, art remains unaffected and displays Exc. As published, this art accompanied the text block from "The New Yorker" included w/art. Scher promoted Zappa's birthday celebration, which was a show known as "Zappa's Universe" and this art was given to Scher. Art appeared on Page 10 in the "Night Life" section. Back has "The New Yorker Magazine, Inc." copyright sticker. A wonderful display piece featuring a stunning depiction of the king of underground music rendered by the king of underground comix, truly a unique piece for these two legends. From the collection of John Scher, legendary concert promoter, producer and manager and comes w/COA signed by him.
I saw people on the forum were asking about this piece.
Thank you all!

I'm new to the forum and posted this in the newbie section as well but thought the reply should be posted here. Thanks!
