writing for orchestra and conducting are far too complicated to do stoned.have you ever seen a full orchestral score? its like calculus. a conductor has to understand 25-150 parts on a 2 foot high page covered in tiny print AND transpose AND control all 100+ instruments with his hand motions. that's why being a conductor is such a big deal- it's REALLY COMPLICATED. He Himself addresses the weed question in the real frank zappa book. (he did it maybe 10 times and it made him sleepy & gave him a sore throat). i could see him MAYBE taking speed maybe but i guess thats what the coffee did for him. Even Ozzy said in his autobiography that FZ didn't get high. Grace Slick said the same thing in hers.

the good thing about internet is, one hasn't to react in any kind and measure to just nobody really, merely keep up the status, quotes other people, generally remaining flat-brained like all the rest on the disc. Ney, me is not saying this to the fine people here in this thread :wink: Ow, and in the world outside one could resort to the same trick, unless they are showing some spirits and you and me are going to lavishly pounds'em with wise jocoseness, foolish darings and the loyks, eh, well. Here is solely the vid from a report where i mean to have seen Frank very vitreous, bright eyed and bushy tailed. If it's not true then i'd take back all one has said about man. Whatever that now is on about, ..have no clue. Ah, most neglected science is biology and drugs is for specialists only, who are willing to risk a lot to further humanity, don't give a damnbit or are already superstars. And now a clown for breakfast: :smurf: lo-ol :)

Frank Zappa, World premiere of Bobby Brown in Vienna, cozy club, 1978

seen it? a Wiener Melange naturell to get himself a bit slowed down. Now, i think he is pretty much excited at this matinée, has written a queer song, performed it for all thee world and maybe even guessed it would become a large hit. ...another cuppa and i change the lyrics into something more poppy, just saying.

Well, it should be off the charts.

It's ironic that Frank would pass on a joint, but a majority of his fans would not.

Zappa is just tired in this picture.....No way he'd ever smoke pot in 1974. And if he did he would announce it to the media immediately.

The Best Band etc....

"Wanna buy some cave paintings Bob?"

And he was known to do "Wanna buy some acid, Bob?" which I think is on the Saabrucken boot.

The performance on Sheik Yerbouti was recorded in England where mandies was apparently a common term (so I've been told anyway). In several other versions I've heard--probably recorded in the States--he says acid.

I don't know, maybe it takes just as many brilliant comments as this one:

Anyway, a guy sharing his own personal tale of being with Frank is not my exact idea of a stupid thread...


How are things in Brazil? Wish you were here! Love, Toodles



It's very hot in Brazil... Come visit us!! hahahahaha

I read he smoked it a few times but didn't really like it's effects.

What brand of cigarettes did he smoke? Winstons I'm guessing. :smoke:

Intresting I wonder if Ian Dury and his Oct 1977 album New Boots and panties have anything too do with FZ using mandies?

Zappa did the song on tour Sep 1977 first, Ian duty album Oct 1977 the song bilericay is the song may of came out sooner than album not sure.got me thinking did frank use mandies before Ian Dury.

Actually, way back in the days of alt.fan.frank-zappa, I think I read someone say that Frank switched to Marlboros in his later days. No clue if that's true or not though.
