Discussion of the crazy, interesting and genius that was Frank Zappa and his live shows, massive recording output, and numerous band incarnations. I am a Zappa fanatic. Over time I will try to put up some favorite links on here for those a little less familiar with his work.

The Master! He should rightfully be in the Guitar Gods section as well. Shut Up And Play Your guitar is phenomenal. Gone way too soon, Over Nite Sensation, Shiek yer Bouti, Them Or Us and Thing Fish were always favorites.

The Torture Never stops is another great Zappa song.

 I also liked his album Bongo Fury recorded with Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart  highlights of this album were Debra Kadabra and Carolina Hard Core Ectasy.

Anybody keeping up with the family issue going on between Dweezil and his brother Ahmet and sister Diva? Apparently he can't call his shows Zappa Plays Zappa anymore because of his siblings but he's going to do a 50th anniversary show of Freak Out...

Those songs were all great. I saw Zappa Plays Zappa on 11/3/2007 at the House Of Blues in Atlantic City it was a great show.
