This is exactly the thing i would like to know, ever since i read about how the house looks like, in a couple of FZ-books i have.<br>But just keep on dreaming, because i don't think Gail is prepared to turn it in to another Graceland....<br><br>We will just have to settle with the pictures available.<br>Or wait until Gail sells the house and maybe we can all buy it together...INCLUDING the Vaults....

I think I remember reading somewhere that he had a painting of the cover 'Pretties For You' hanging up on a wall somewhere in his house. I think I remember even seeing a picture of it.<br>~<br>I keep asking my wife to paint me one , so far no luck.<br><br>

There is some pretty decent footage in the Zappa BBC/A&E Biography.  It's only one or two rooms plus our beloved Vault, but they look really cool.  When it shows the UMRK workers headed to the vault they pass through a indoor garden-like area!  Wowie Zowie!!!
