Frank Zappa: Felt Forum
By Dennis Horgan, p 17

 As Frank Zappa's new version of the Mothers took the stage some 45 minutes late, they were warmly greeted by a boisterous and enthusiastic audience. The reception became more than warm as a red jump suited Zappa strode to mid-stage, introduced the band, and then himself as "your old pal, Frankie." As it turned out, the wait was well worth it as the audience was treated to two hours of Zappa Music, old and new, plus a healthy dose of the famous Zappa humor. (read more)

Frank Zappa: The Palladium
By Steve Wishnia, p 31

 "Percussoid" Ed Mann used a No Parking sign as a thundersheet at one point during this year's Halloween show.

In these days of rapidly escalating record prices, it's hard enough to break an album onto the charts that sounds even a trifle, well, out of the ordinary. (read more)

Zappa: He Are What He Is
Interview by Bill Milkowski, pp 17, 19

  Ever since his honorary induction into the rock & roll Hall of Fame with his 1967 debut album, Freak Out, the name Frank Zappa has been associated with irreverence. His discography to date may very well rank alongside the collected works of such renowned cynics and social commentators as Mark Twain, George Bernard Shaw and H.L. Mencken – all first-class upstarts in their own right. (read more)
