Frank Zappa was cool. Amazing musician, super intelligent. Very funny too. I got his book, but I havent yet read it all. I've skimmed a few chapters. He had some very interesting thoughts about things, made a lot of sense. Some of it is hilarious too! biggrin.gif

The thing about Frank is that he only seemed so wacky or crazy. The more you learn about him the more you realize that he was a very sane and very intelligent person. He enjoyed pointing out the insanity and stupidity in everyday things that most people take for granted as normal.

"Iím not a virtuoso guitar player. A virtuoso can play anything and I canít. I can play only what I know, to the extent that I have developed enough manual dexterity to get the point across..." - Frank Zappa

Right, Like to me he was never weird in any way, but life is weird. The dude was, what I would call highly evolved tongue.gif

i was watching TCM Underground a few nights ago when i saw something called 200 Motels and i couldnt help but notice that Frank Zappa looked a little Jack Sparrow-ish. I know Johnny Depp said that Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones was the look he went for concerning the pirates movies.

I also looked at pictures of the New Wave 80s singer Adam Ant and thought to myself :Johnny Depp could pull this look off too.

so....which singer can you see Johnny Depp portray ?
