Zappa:When Did He Give Up?

I once said that Joe’s Garage was when he just stopped caring about the music and instead became a joke, or at the very least, a parody maker.

I got a lot of crap for that statement because Frank Zappa liked to be funny all the time. I thought he was funny and brilliant, and I know I don’t have to choose one. I just like it when he PLAYS, not so much when he sings and maybe that’s why I’m slow to warm to his post-Mothers work.

He said in the middle of the album ” Burnt Weeny Sandwich” something to a heckler that I appreciated greatly. This was 1970. Maybe someone said something about the Mothers’ garb and he replied quickly “ALL of you are wearing uniforms, so stop kidding yourselves”.

Whew, that’s almost as telling as what happened at Altamont, isn’t it?

I leave you with Frank,  Flo, and Eddie. You suck badly if you don’t like this.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
