had a friend around last night that loves zappa so we watched some zappa vids ,..my friend loves him,..I on the other hand fail to see just what was so great about him ,. he was a very average guitar player his composing skills not that amazing ,..He did have that rather large amusing nose ,..and his discusting sence of humour,.now with out that discusting sense of humour I would doubt he would have got any where with his music ,..
Zappa famous for filth now thats talent,.. :guitar

i understand the paradox between you and your friend

you either get it or you don't

some people just don't get it- and i understand that... some people just love it

my best friend doesn't get it

my gf doesn't get it although i took her to zappa plays zappa and made her read his book

i on the other hand love it

Well aaronm you asked for it. Overated musician? Dude what planet are you from??? Zappa is an unsung hero in my book. Let me ask you this, do you have any music you have composed? If so I'd like to hear it and see how it musters up against Zappa.

once again

some people get it some people don't

and trust me- if aaronm had dozens of compositions- i'm sure i could find numerous zappa examples that are far worse than it...


he had 70+ albums (and i have them all on mp3)

not all of it is great... some of it is pretty unlistenable... some of it is genius...and some of it is great music.
NOT ALL OF IT

frank zappa self funded nearly 100 albums and has dozens more unreleased albums and billions of things in his vault that will never see the light of day

not only that- he hired and paid THE GREATEST MUSICIANS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Vai, Bozzio, a million others

if guitar doesn't pay all your bills- then you're not better than zappa
