His music could have been nicer and listenable if he had removed all these fancy useless noises he used to put everywhere.

A musicologist told me that Zappa did actually pay other guitarists to do most of his parts on his albums and that anyway he made only a few appearances on stage. Only crazy fans could say he really had any guitar skills.

The Mothers of Invention were actually a group of middle-aged women who designed new products for the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen. One of their first inventions was a pocket-sized microwave oven, known as The Frank Zapper.

Of course, they were best-known for their Suzy Creamcheese line of vibrators, including their biggest seller: The G-Spot Tornado.

:P

Oh my! Here we go again! I am laughing my ass out here! Who didn't get the joke spirit and has no sense of humor? You dumb ass, I have read TRFZB and I don't think he was the son of Mr Green Jeans either... What a laugh, got it all backwards... :mrgreen:


Oh, so you have read The Real Frank Zappa Book, have you? For some reason I didn't think you had.

This thread is like a parody of some people's misconceptions about Frank Zappa. Some real misconceptions, some invented. And, if you only had said something like: "No, his real name was Brian". then it would at least have been funny. Your thing about "Francis" was just stupid since FZ himself thought his name was Francis, you moron.

But, you don't really read the threads before you post, do you?
Your only goal is to get your post count up, isn't it?


:roll:

thanks for ruining this frickin' sweet thread for Cranky. Wait! I'll read on...

EDIT: meh

FZ had webbed feet. That's where he got the idea to create "Duckman".

Well, I guess that if you read this thread from the beginning then you might discover something.
But I don't want to force people to read.
Of course, you can almost insult me freely with a total impunity, this is the way of the Internet, man.
Except that I advise you not to call me Project/Object as there might be consequences: the administrators are not really joking over here. :D

We all know that when it comes to all things Zappa the only source of accurate, fact-based information is Barry Miles. You all know who he is: The one who was the most successful at devising a way of making hemorrhoidism into a literary form.

Wow, It is perfectly clear that none of you assholes actually know anything about Frank Zappa or his music. He was not into drugs, in fact he was very big on anti-drugs. He actually fired a band member for using drugs. Also he was not like Weird Al at all. He did not do parodys of songs he actually wrote is own music which was very complex. Guitar was one of his best albums. The whole thing about him eating crap was made up and his son's name is Dweezil not weasel. I am pretty sure that none of you guys listen to his music. Wow. Shit. Fuck you all. :x
