If 'fan' is short for fanatic,
then count me in!
I first heard Frank's music in 1970 (I was 13) when two guys on a college radio show
used 'Peaches' (from Hot Rats) as a closing theme for their show-
I had never heard music like that (FM radio was still pretty new in 1970) so I called to find out who/what that was.
The next day I got my parents to buy me Weasels Ripped My Flesh, Burnt Weeny Sandwich &
Hot Rats & I was hooked!
Picked up the back stuff & kept on getting the new stuff-
in fact I'm waiting for 'One Shot Deal' to show up in the mail..........................
nowadays at least 60% of my musical listening is Zappa~
