Birthday for Zappa

Today would have been the 77th 67th birthday of the eminently quotable father of Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan, and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeenay. [Thanbks to a commentator for the correction on age]. His family's home page is celebrating the day here.

Who other than he could have composed serious classical pieces about a vacuum cleaner salesman and Naval aviation art, and reaped great reviews nearly 20 years after his death?

Give a listen.

Awesome post. Thanks for letting us know, and taking a moment to remember Frank. I've been an avid fan for years. My wife doesn't get it though. I think she got turned off years ago when I told her I thought "I have been in you" was a romantic song.

Actually Frank would have been SIXTY-seven, not SEVENTY-seven.

RIP Uncle Frank.
