Containing Multitudes Since 2004
A great moment in television if ever there was one.
Love that pic. As so often with artists, Frank Zappa was much less of a snob than a lot of his fans were. Flo & Eddie said that Zappa hired them because he liked the Turtles' music.
A real minute of sureality...
Zappa belongs in The Cool Hall of Fame, easily.
The Monkees, derided as the PreFab Four in their day, actually rubbed had connections to an amazing assortment of folks including Zappa, Jack Nicholson, Neil Young, Steven Stills and Charlie Manson.
At the company where I work we've given names to all the meeting rooms to make it easy to refer to them when booking meetings. We named one of the rooms the Frank Zappa room.
The Monkeys did know some pretty cool people. They also had talent. Even the Beatles professed a liking for their music. And, in a six degrees sort of way, their acquaintance with Charles Manson linked them to Dennis Wilson (although Charlie totally freaked out the other Beach Boys).
