Zappa was exactly that. The composer of the 20th century in my book, he was simply amazing. Seen him twice, both times in London ion the 80's.

I love the covers of "Uncle Meat" , "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" and "We're Only In It For The Money" by Cal Schenkel.

Your illustrations are great!!!

I listen to a lot of music - from medieval chants to Asian Dub Foundation - and I think Frank Zappa is a real musical melting pot!

Cal Schenkel's covers and the movie "Baby Snakes"(animation by Bruce Bickford, another genius) are great visual experiences!

FZ's "Lather" is my favorite.

yes, FZ was a real melting pot and a genius!
I have so many FZ-favorites, like "Hot Rats" or "Roxy & Elsewhere".

I have been a FZ fan since I was 3 years old and saw him in the Monkees' tv show, "playing" a car (he "played" a bicicle in another tv show. Everything is music!).

I like a lot his sense of humour, the same type of The Marx Brothers ("Duck Soup" is my favorite, the mirror scene is fantastic), and Monty Python ("The Meaning Of Life", and the machine that goes PING!).

Frank on human behaviour:

"My advice to people who are not normal (I think he's saying "not normal" in the positive-creative way) is: Try not to hate people who are normal. There has to be an educational process that will improve relations between the two species."

Man, he's better than Freud!

Your illustrations kind of remind me of some of those old concert Poster's you would find around in the 70's and I know even if I was not born at the time. Kind of hard to compare today's music with the real stuff.
