Zappa Does Bolero
“The rock and roll business is pretty absurd, but the world of serious music is much worse”
— Frank Zappa interview 1984
If you speak your mind with creativity and integrity, you might also get to have an asteroid named after you
Frank Zappa always managed to slip in a sort of sloppy, ironic sensibility to all his creative work. He knew better than to take whatever he was doing too seriously. But by so doing, he reminded Rock and Roll that music was meant to be fun.

Once’pon — a midnight dreary,
While I pondered weak en weery, over
many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
(forgotten lore, forgotten lore)
While I nodded nearly nappin’
suddenly! there came a-tappin’
*drum beats tapping*
as if someone gently rappin’
(rappin’ a-rappin, a-rap rap rappin’)
a-rappin at me chamber door.
