Good one Creature... shit actually I forgot man time just slips by

Re: Franf Zappa Fans Only

found it, I miss Frank Zappa lots
but at least he left a long trail of his once being here!

Re: Franf Zappa Fans Only

^ That guy put out so much material, it's awesome. The archives are endlessly entertaining, and there's still plenty of Zappa left to go around (as the Zappa family is still releasing 'new' stuff every other year or so it seems).

So right now I'm jamming to Teen-Age Wind. I love this.

"Free is when you don't have to pay for nothing
or do nothing
We want to be free!
(Free as the wind)."

Calling out the idiocy of whiny teenagers who are too brain-dead to have a life of their own independent from relying on their parents 24/7 for rides, money for shit they don't deserve in the first place, etc. Good stuff.

This is a cool picture. Zappa was a jazz guitar fan. Here he is with some bona fide jazz guitar greats.  From left to right... Tommy Todesco, Jack Ranelli, unknown, Charlie Chiarenza, John Pisano, Frank Zappa, Joe Pass.
at Pastamichi, (Charlie's Restaurant). Jan.1983.

^ That's a very cool find, Getken. Awesome to see Zappa enjoying the company of musicians he grew up listening to and admired, much like how he got to hang with Igor Stravinsky in the late 80's/early 90's. Neat picture.
