From Wikipedia:

Famous dropouts:

Frank Zappa: Zappa, then a resident near Pomona College in San Bernadino County, would occasionally bring samples of his scores to Prof. Karl Kohn. This was not part of a normal undergraduate program, nor was it some form of school-sanctioned visiting student arrangement, but simply informal private lessons. By 1970, Pomona publications referred to Zappa having studied there, and Kohn's name appears on the cover of Freak Out! (1966) under the heading "These People Have Contributed Materially In Many Ways To Make Our Music What It Is. Please Do Not Hold It Against Them". Zappa contributed to the renovation of Pomona's Bridges Hall of Music, and one of the seats in the hall bears a plaque with his name.[citation needed]

Since there's no indication of the hall even in the Joe's Menage booklet I suppose it must be the Kaplan Arena at William & Mary Hall, which was built in 1971.

Sporthalle, Köln (Cologne)

Update

The Sporthalle was FZ's living room in Köln:

1979 crowd:

In 1980 FZ played twice together with Santana. Unfortunately they didn't join for a jam:

FZ's last show was in 1988:

The Sporthalle, built in 1958, was demolished on March 13, 1999. Sigh.

Beside Zappa (1979, 1980, 1982, 1988) I saw a lot of other teenage rockin' combos at this lovely venue.
