Frank Zappa, A pioneer of Future Music

He'd probably be glad he didn't see the future of music.

    Frank’s vaults are impressive. One of my regrets is passing up seeing him on stage when I had the chance

    He was a really interesting and totally uncompromised & committed composer and musician. He's also essentially a patron saint in the Czech Republic, which I think is cool as heck.

    A musical genius is what Frank Zappa was. I seen him off the Joe's Garage tour in San Diego what a show we were 5th row from the Stage.

    Frank was so far ahead of the curve, the curve still has not caught up.

    In my younger years I detested Franks music. I now have an great appreciation for his groove. Some of it I still am on the fence about. The man however was and well always be one of the best musicians in my lifetime. Watching him shred Tipper Gore and those other slugs was great TV.
    One brilliant mind!!

    I enjoy everything he ever recorded, never a dull moment.

    Funny, I was just thinking about how I don't like Rod.
