RIP, Frank Zappa! You were a unique genius. We lost you and your conceptual continuity far too soon.

I used to love the song Bobby Brown. There was a serious bass bomb in it. During the early 80's I had a 110 watt amp and 13" woofer speakers. We would sound check that bass until the house shook, literally.

Wow, 71 freakin years old. How time flies. Seems like yesterday me and my buddies were Jammin in Joes garage.

RIP Frank. As Bob Hope used to say ... "thanks for the memories".

FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

FZ was gifted and unique musician. I have seen his son Dweezil play as Zappa Plays Zappa several times and they are very, very good. Catch them if you can.

On this, his birthday, just take a moment and imagine how different life in this country might be if Frank was still alive to stir the pot. A great warrior.

And yes, ZPZ is fantastic. Wish they'd do a full tour with Flo and Eddie.

I remember his death day (earlier this month). I can't believe I flaked out on this. Thank you. One of my favorite weeks ever. Uncle Frank at the Events Center(Boulder), on 12/6/81, then the Dead on 12/9/81. Missed that whole week of school my senior year.One of the best studio, + live musicians to ever lace 'em up. I hope you, + Jerry are riffing up there. Thank you both, for a real good time.

We miss you Frank. I'm in the midst of reading his auto biography, and it's very interesting. He was one of a kind.

When I count my blessings, one in a long list is having had the pleasure of seeing Frank in '84, Chicago, and JGB opened.
When Frank came onsatage he said "ok, ok, sit down, we're going to be here a while"

If you want a glimpse of another side of Frank, check this out......it's a good laugh!

We miss you Frank! You were quite the musical genius! Thanks for all the great tunes!

And thank you to Dweezil who keeps it all alive! For sure check out Zappa plays Zappa if you haven't already. I never got to see Frank but Dweezil can put on a very great performance! Can get you kinda emotional!

Happy Birthday FZ!
