Somewhere else the riff of Eat that question (on Grand Wazoo) was brought up. Finally.<br><br>I think this riff is SO great that it deserves its own thread. IMO, it is probably the best riff ever, by anyone... The overall song is so great too. One of my favourite Zappa-songs. <br><br>The question for this thread is: <br>But WHAT question exactly should we eat?<br><br>Shoot!

One of my favorites too. The Muffin Men do a great live version of "Eat that Question'. More than makes up for their butchering of "Love of my life'!

I red somehere that the original title was "Eat That Christian".  It was propably too tricky to release it under that name, so I guess they changed it to "Eat That question".  You got to admit, it almost sounds the same.  How about that!  Zappa supporting cannabalism or did he just try to upset them?

If I'm not mistaken, they were the peasants who were drafted into the musician army. But FZ might have called the christians "questions" in the first place. Maybe I should review the story to make sure.<br>
