Watch Frank Zappa online for free

#220871 1 year, 4 months ago




was reading recently sometime in the 80s JGB and Zappa shared a bill... would of been interesting though I'm pretty sure Zappa hated the whole hippie thing.

I still love him

They played a co-bill in Chicago. A while back, here on the FF, there was a post from someone who went to the show. I recall that he said Zappa played Illinois Enema Bandit which is fitting for a show in Chicago. I always wondered about that show too!!
These are the good old days!!

"We're Only In It for The Money"

Drove through Maryland a few years back, at a highway rest stop there was one of those penny pressing machines and I couldn't resist this one. Thought I'd share it here for grins ;D

Always liked Frank. Thanks.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Very cool.
A few years ago we were visiting Baltimore and they happened to be placing a statue of Frank in front of a library in the neighborhood he lived in. Zappa Plays Zappa did a free set on a stage in the middle of the street, and the whole Zappa family was there for the statue dedication. They had the trees decorated as Dental Floss Bushes...

Thanks for this thread. I am huge Zappa fan and love his collaborative work with Captain Beefheart. "Can't Remember What Became of Me...Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy."

Saw Zappa Plays Zappa at the Fox (Boulder, CO) on Friday the 14th. These guys bring the goods. A must see for any lover of Uncle Frank.

Frank's band in '88 was highly regarded. There was an album released with this lineup called The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life.

Regarding the Garcia/Zappa show......August 18, 1984 UIC pavillion in Chicago. I was there, here's a button I bought in the lot.

JGB opened, and were in top form. Here's the set list

Cats Under The Stars
Get Out Of My Life Woman
I'll Take A Melody
Run For The Roses
Gomorrah
Midnight Moonlight

E:
Deal

When Frank started that's when I started peaking and could only sit there and be spellbound.
