    His music was a bit hit or miss with me some was fantastic, but the man was a stone cold genius with impeccable morals

    ok no someone should post the video of him on A late night TV show playing a non musical instrument in a musical way.

    I recently saw Medium Cool for the first time. It was more a document of the times than a movie. MC included musical assistance from Frank and the Mothers as well as Wild Man Fischer (!). So there.

    Loved Dont eat the Yellow Snow and in fact Apostrophe was a great listen. Dancing Fool was hilarious. Songs like Suicide Chump left me speechless.

    Man was a great guitarist, musically brilliant and one of a kind.

    Thanks for the heads-up, psyched for this! I wonder how it will be view-able to mere mortals(?)

    SXSW is in March in Austin. I assume after it premiers it will find a distributor, either in cinemas or direct to Netflix or Amazon or the like. Or hey, maybe even one of the obsolete formats like DVD/BRD!

    Ok I have been doing a deep dive into Zappa largely, relistening to albums I knew listening to stuff I didn’t know and watching interviews with the man.

    I have always like him and respected him but have been learning so much more about him.

    pure genius

    You might try Strictly Commercial: The Best of Frank Zappa as an intro.

    Another possibility: Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar

    To be honest he’s an acquired taste. Not unlike scotch or s&m bondage. Oops maybe tmi. So sorry

    Jamming to Joe's Garage tonight, but last night it was Overnight Sensation, and am now considering moving to Montana to become a dental floss tycoon. But was really digging this album start to finish. It is a shorter listen than all 3 volumes of Joe's Garage but Overnight Sensation has so.e very weird tunes on it from The Slime, Fifty Fifty, dirty love but the most insane is Dyna Mo Hum.

    Btw if you have Amazon Prime you can use their Prime Music app to get access to some of his albums for free.
