upon finding this pic of frank<br>Image<br>in which he seems to me to look alot like GEORGE BEST ( if ya believe that one ) got me thinking that on this planet, at this moment there must be at least one other Frank doppleganger or guy who is the spitting image of Frank somewhere - it just has to be so. <br><br>has anyone spotted him ? should this Zappa clone be sought out, lauded upon, showerd with gifts and held in great esteem or even........ worshiped ? <br><br>mungo <br><br>

no no jimm - i can well believe that that could well have applied . in fact its all rather sad and i dont know what i have done really because that pic. is , as you say off frank when he is ill - dying in fact - and the image of george best ( pic required - 2004 pic ) that i had in mind are recent ones, and sadly, mr. best is a bloated alcho. and looks nowhere as healthy as frank does in that pic. <br>all just a gut reaction i suppose . <br><br>in fact - this is all bad shit - i never really looked at frank properly in that photo before i posted it - at the time i guess the public didnt know he had a terminal disease - but if you know look into his eyes you can see that HE knew it but WE didnt . <br><br>sorry - ims done with this one i think <br><br>mungo

Image Guy Mortier apparently a well known german FZ lookalike, he's editor or was editor of a magazine and has interviewed fz in the past, 1973 i think it said  ;D Humo is the magazine, i found lots more fz lookalike references but they were normally in text and were on forums like "i was on the bus last night and there was this freaky guy who looked like frank zappa at the back making funny noises"

[quote author=Batchain115 link=board=rant;num=1089150840;start=15#24 date=07/09/04 at 02:08:07]I, personally, would never have sat through that kind of grotesque mockery of Frank had they done anything like that in August, 2000.<br>--Bat[/quote]<br>I saw 'em in August 2000 and they didn't say or do anything at all disrespectful to Frank. It was a good show.<br>[hr]<br>P.S. The cheezy look on my face above is due to a girl not knowing how to work the camera and taking forever to aim it and push the button, all the while saying "OK...now smile...oops...ok wait a second...OK,now smile...uhhhm...OK,OK.....OK, now smile.." etc. for about a minute or two. <br>I finally locked a smile on my face and began razzing her via ventriloquism through the girl in front of me. :)<br><br>And the hair-- "You should get a body wave, it will look SO good." ::) It ended up being a perm. <br>I got really tanned later that summer and for some reason kept being told I looked Mexican.<br><br>It ended up being an odd summer all the way around. 8)
