Man, I've had it up to here with all you Zappologists. Johnny Cash can
produce more meaning in one note than Zappa can in a million.
Gotta go with Jay on this one.
FZ thought his audience were dumb, hence most
albums he released post 1974...I guranteee you Frank
held back (what he thouught) were his great works because
his idiotic fanbase werent worthy enough to hear them.
So you got such nonsense as "Zoot Allures"...."Man From Utopia"
"Joes Garage"..."Studio Tan"..."Sheik Yerbooti"..."You are
what you is"..."Man from Utopia"..
Shall I go on?
His (minor) involvement in politics was to give his ego a platform.
Overall, a minor player over the 4 decades he recorded, and a
source of inspiration for countless nimrods who didn't realise
there hero thought they were stupid.
