Hi all

Been a fan of Frank, on and off, since school.
Never managed to see him live, whenever he was in the UK I was busy, broke, elsewhere or stupid.
I have been trying for years to find a poster of frank i once saw in a film. I think it was an old horror film.
The poster was made up like a sheet of music, the notes made up his portrait with the word MOTHER above him.
Anyone got any ideas what the film was called or where i could get the poster?

cheers

Maybe some of you musical people could get together and play that piece? The score is surely easier to play faithfully on musical instruments than many classics of modern composition :idea:

By the way - a question to the score readers among you: Is there any connection between the dots in the Frank Zappa name on the cover of CPIII and a melody fragment from the album? For some reason I've always associated the little repeated melody in Beat the Reaper with that, although it's extremely farfetched, since I can't read music.

Very cool, although I thought this thread would be about RayBuckmiller or Poncho.
