I have thought about Frank Zappa tonight. It was 20 years ago, December 4th, 1993 that Frank Zappa died at the age of 52.
Howard Kaylan says it best. He was Frank Zappa.
I am drawn to the Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention period with Flo and Eddie. What better way to honor Frank’s music genius than listen to the classic track, “Billy The Mountain“, from Just Another Band from L.A.
