I don't doubt the validity of the majority of the article, but the portion about Raven seems curious. I have yet to read the book. Is the story about Raven directly from the book or some other source?

The story about the Raven is indeed in Pauline's book, and also in Frank's own book. Pauline's version is more detailed, as she based her book on journals that she kept at the time. I recommend her book highly, as it is in my opinion the most accurate and believable of all the "I remember Zappa" type books out there.

The Raven and his gun are also alluded to in the John Mayall song about the Zappa household, "2401."

That would be 2401
