So, what's all this hoo-ha about Acid Mothers Temple. Lots of their titles sound like Frank titles. Any comments?<br>

hmm Zappa fucked me all up. I cant STAND any other type of music now. ALL top 40 is crap I hate EVERYTHING I hear on the raideo I hate pretty much everything I use to listen to before Frank. There are a few good old classics I still love.  Syd Barrett is my second fav. I still respect the early Yes years, been sometime since I even heard any of that stuff but I do respect them as musicians. I do like classic grind music as well. i.e Napalm Death, Carcass, Bolt Thrower and a few others, but in general I HATE EVERYTHING. I hate the blues, so redundant it kills me. Fuckin whinny baby ass shit singing about lost love.. blaaah!! Only Zappa has the style of blues I like. I DO LOVE JAZZ. Jazz to me is the BEST. Even before I listen to Frank I liked Jazz very few singing just alot of jammin, as a drummer of almost 27 years that music is the funnest for me to play. Love to play jazz. Other than that I just exclusivly listen to JUST Frank. One could say that its being closed minded, I just call it taste. Iv only been listning to Zappa for 15 years now ( and yea I still do consider myself a noob), but in those 15 years I have made myself a huge collection now. So I just think of it as catching up. ;D ..Music is the best.
