Frank Zappa – Geni eller galning?
(Frank Zappa – Genius or Madman?)
By Stefan Wallberg, pp 22-25

Lumpy Gravy @ forums:

The 'Monster' magazine asks if Zappa was a genius or a madman. I don't recognize the name of the writer. He tells, more or less, the story of Zappa. He has taken a lot from the 'Real Frank Zappa Book' and the rest from various articles. There's one quote, though, I haven't seen before.

Zappa says: "I consider Adolf Hitler to be the worst person that have ever lived. And he didn't like AC/DC. He liked Wagner."

Zappa is supposed to have said this, concerning the myth that heavy metal makes people prone to violence...

Also, at the end of the article, there's a list of ten records which Zappa would take with him to a desert island. He named them in a radio show called 'Castaway's Choice' in 1989.

Anyway, these are Zappa's ten choices:

 1. Octandre – Edgard Varèse
 2. The Royal March from L'Histoire du Soldat – Igor Stravinsky
 3. The Rite of Spring – Igor Stravinsky
 4. Third Piano Concerto, First Movement – Béla Bartok
 5. Stolen Moments – Oliver Nelson
 6. Three Hours Past Midnight – Johnny Guitar Watson
 7. Can I Come Over Tonight – The Velours
 8. Bagatelles for String Quartet – Anton Webern
 9. The Anton Webern Symphony, Opus 21 – Anton Webern
10. Piano Concerto in G – Maurice Ravel
