I call on the webmaster, here, to start a ZAPPA trivia post.<br>  Give us something to work with and talk about,<br>Possibly a new question weekly would be great.

don't know if there is a webmaster these days, but it could be fun<br><br>gz: scan & post some obscure fz document or notes other mysterious remnant & ask some kind of esoteric question, then turn it into a t-shirt or jig-saw puzzle or some such shit<br><br>joe traverse: post a new mystery name the riff on a weekly basis, wait a week, then disclose the answer

Question No. 1:<br><br>Which artist is Captain Beefheart talking about?<br><br>The pop musisican Captain Beefheart experienced his psychotic episodes at first hand at a concert in San Fernando Valley.<br><br>" They gave him a grand piano, a really beautiful Steinway, surmounted  by a cut-glass bowl full of roses. He came in late wearing a trench coat. He dumped the bowl in the piano, knocked down the lid, and hit one note. The sound: everything going on in the piano, the strings, the water splashing, the roses. Then he left." <br>Captain Beefheart characterizes this as: " The most memorable performnace I ever witnessed!" .

I didn't know of this performance, but my guess is Nicholas Slominski. <br>  Slominski joined FZ onstage during the 81 tour. Dec. 11, 1981 for a solo with the band, and is seen on several Zappa documentaries. I recall one interview where Slominski visited Zappa and he mentions how amazed he was at the piano Zappa had with an additional full lower octave set of keys.<br><br>is it SLOMINSKI??
