Napoleon is the man. He's part of the reason I love that NMB\Ruth\tom\George Duke\Chester line up more than others. It's my favorite Zappa configuration. Flo and Eddie!? Fuckabuncha Flo and Eddie, it's Napoleon man. And to think I never knew he was called Nappy... About 2 or 3 years ago I

Yes she does, and you're absolutely right about that. I'll now raise the bar even further. Now that we have a kid, she's going to follow through on a plan she's had for years - to buy our daughter the kid sized Titties and Beer t-shirt, and you can bet she'll take our little mutant out in

Sorry if I mentioned this already. Between moving, caring for a three month old and not sleeping I can barely remember my name. so just in case, the discs for the Yellow Shark vine have gone on to John Keating. I think I may have notified him, not sure about the group. So here it is. Mr. Skull

Wouldn't have ever happened. FZ expressed his extreme dislike of Miles on at least one occasion I can recall. Mr. Skull . . . and perhaps even fantasize about what might have happened if Miles had given FZ the call for the Bitches Brew sessions. You can read the article here

BerichtIt was in a Guitar Player magazine interview if memory serves. I probably still have it as I NEVER throw out anything 'Frank'. But it wasn't about his music, it was about Miles Davis as a person. He recalled going to see Miles in the early Sixties and went to meet him after the show. He

When seeing this subject come up I'm reminded of the irony. Does anyone else recall FZ going on briefly about beer (and its association with stupidity) in the Real Frank Zappa Book? and of course there would be his stance against drugs in general, and alcohol is in fact a drug (albeit a legal
