I just watched the 2 part BBC Top Gear Burma Special, in the 2nd part the lads are seen singing (karaoke) a couple of bars of Bobby Brown!

This is the same episode that has caused a furore in the UK because Jeremy Clarkson made an off hand remark that the bridge they had just built had a slope on it, whilst an asian gentleman happened to be walking across....

Radio.com Minimation: Frank Zappa and the Hot, Smelly Garrick Theatre Gigs

While recording 1968′s We’re Only In It For The Money, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention did a six month residency at the Garrick Theatre in New York’s Greenwich Village. That probably sounded like a good idea at the time. That is, until the air conditioner died, and, according to Zappa, “They refused to spend any money to fix it,” leading to interesting aromas filling the theater nightly. Another issue: their zaftig drummer Billy Mundi was having a hard time keeping cool under those conditions.
That might be true of the audience as well: the New York Times‘ review of the show wondered, “Whether their show at the Garrick will make any new friends for the Mothers – or whether they really want any – is hard to say.” But, as Zappa points out in the interview, “It’s pretty hard to maintain your aristocratic coolness in that type of air conditioning situation.”

Sunday Cinema Frank Zappa On Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live was so hip in its early years that not only was Frank Zappa brought on as a musical guest in 1976, but he was asked back in 1978 as host as well as musical guest. Frank's 1978 appearance didn't go so hot as he allegedly was banned from the show due to his mugging for the camera and pointedly reading from cue cards according to Kill Ugly Radio.

"It's a very difficult thing to do; they never make it easy on anyone who hosts the show. All the direction and attention goes to the sketches. They're not called skits--they become 'incensed' if you call them skits--and it's all designed to accommodate the people who are regulars on the show, so anybody who goes on there to hosts is at a severe disadvantage. Because they never tell you what camera is on, and you're not supposed to memorize your script because they're rewriting right up to show time. And so you're looking at the cue cards, and unless you're used to acting live on TV, you haven't got a prayer; you'll be looking at the wrong camera. It was really hard," Frank told Stereo Review in 1979 about his SNL hosting experience.

Zappa has been found on many "Worst SNL Hosts Ever" lists and detailed the backstory to Stereo Review, "And the other thing that happened was--and I didn't find out about it until the day after the show--that the first day I went there for the meetings with them they didn't like me and wanted to get rid of me. But no one said anything to my face while I was working on the thing. So they had written dialogue for me to say that I wouldn't normally say; they wouldn't let me write any of my own stuff." For all the issues with Frank as an actor, there was no doubting his musical ability. We've compiled five clips from his 1976 and 1978 visits to SNL including a special guest spot from the one and only John Belushi.

If you want to see the SNL clips :arrow:

Watched What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen on Bravo the other night, and Matthew Broderick was one of the guests. When asked what his first concert was, Matthew said, "Frank Zappa". Always knew I liked the lad. Save Ferris!

Found this on youtube, it appears to be from around 1966,
the mothers of invention with Zappa jumping up and down, amazing footage.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLZQHHj0l1Y

I did post this with it's own heading but it seems not to have been seen by many people
there so thought maybe this is the best place for it.
