He reminds me of Peter Marshall, the host of the original Hollywood Squares.

Just a little footnote about Peter Marshall.  His son, Pete LaCock, was a major league baseball player.  He played first base for the Chicago Cubs in the 70's.  If LaCock is the family name I can see why the senior might have changed it for show biz purposes.  Would have been a good porn star name though.

I'm fairly sure that you don't have to pay royalties on cover art, even if it rips off something else.

[quote author=Lumpy Gravy link=board=albums;num=1030248002;start=30#40 date=04/12/05 at 13:15:27]<br>Well, technically Zappa didn't copy the Sgt. Pepper-cover, since he didn't use any of the actual photos used by the Beatles. <br>Zappa (and Schenkel) made a parody of the Sgt. Pepper-cover, but they were still using their own 'material.'[/quote]<br><br>Well, it's clearly a sendup of Sgt. Pepper, with a few changes. Surely the same can be said of the weasels cover?<br><br><br>

Which ones?
<br><br>The cover to Physical Graffiti, for instance.

could be the photographer; more likely if schick paid some ad agency for that ad, they own it; the odds be better than 50/50 someone must have seen it from either shick corp, their ad agency or the photographer or even the shaving guy...

an interview by either neon park or someone else talking about that cover; maybe neon park never disclosed the source to zappa

WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH The Mothers Of Invention Bizarre/Reprise, 1970<br><br>Artist: NEON PARK<br><br>NEON PARK was working as a poster artist with the Family Dog, a San Francisco design group, when he got a call from Frank Zappa asking him to come down to Los Angeles. Zappa had seen the drawings Park had done for a group called Dancing Food and wanted him to paint the jacket for the next Mothers of Invention record. At their meeting, Zappa showed Park a magazine cover. "It was one of those men's magazines like *Saga*," says Park.<br><br>"The cover story was *Weasels Ripped My Flesh* and it was the adventure of a guy, naked to the waist, who was in water. The water was swarming with weasals, and they were all kind of climbing on him and biting him. So Frank said, `This is it. What can you do that's worse than this?' And the rest is history."<br><br>Park's painting, for which he was paid $250, almost didn't see the light of day. Zappa butted heads with Warner Bros. over its suitability for release. "Evidently," says Park, "there was quite a confrontation that occurred over this cover. It wasn't up to their standards." Even after Warner Bros. finally consented to use it, there were problems. "The printer was greatly offended," says Park. "The girl who worked for him, his assistant, she wouldn't touch the painting. She wouldn't pick it up with her hands." Zappa and Park, meanwhile were tickled silly by the brouhaha: "I was greatly amused by the cover, and so was Frank," says Park. I mean, we giggled alot."<br><br>Park still can't see what all the fuss was about. "It was an infamous cover," he says, "although by today's standards, it's pretty tame. It's not like eating liver in Milwaukee."<br><br>
