Today is the 20th anniversary of Frank Zappa's early exit from this world. This makes me sad.

Please hunt down and play Watermelon In Easter Hay or Black Napkins, two of Frank's signature tunes that go some small way to demonstrating what made him the most adventurous and eccentric guitar virtuoso of the rock era. Instantly recognisable, unique and fearless, his style and performance have never been emulated or bettered in my opinion.

Then line up The Yellow Shark to understand why he's one of the most important composers of the 20th Century.

Funny, he thought of himself as a composer rather than a Rock Musician. I will play the tracks you mention (if I can remember :roll: ).

This months Prog magazine, has Frank on the cover, and a big feature inside. Thanks for the reminder Richard.
