    that was a sad day! i'm glad the zappa family continues to handle his legacy in the classiest way..unlike jimi's family - most of whom he never even met

    FZ. Irreverence writ large with the talent to back it up! Something we don't see much in the day of sycophants and traditionalists? The present, that is!

    Hard to believe it's been that long!

    The "Strictly Commercial" compilation is a good place to start IMNSHO... FZ was a very challenging composer/musician; getting a toe-hold on his work isn't the easiest thing in the world :-) I got my son started with the aforementioned compilation and he became a big, big fan.
    all the best,

    Been listening to a lot of Zappa lately, primarily his fusion era stuff. If you think Zappa is all about witty, silly, sophomoric lyrics then you're missing the boat. Give a listen to any of the following and I'm willing to bet you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Imaginary Diseases
    Zappa/Wazoo
    Waka/Jawaka
    Grand Wazoo
    Guitar, not to be confused with his Shut up and play you Guitar series

    Actually, even the witty and satirical stuff is set to interesting compositions. In my youth, when I first heard this stuff, I found that it was always the more "heady" guys who were into Zappa. Sure they like the humor and irreverence, but what they were really into was the "music". I'd describe them as more "thoughtful", musically.
