The Real Frank Zappa Book


Great book, BUY IT! The only book about him, written by him he says. Very good read, extremely funny and interesting.

Worth reading? The last Zappa book I bought was Ben Watsons Complete Guide To His Music.....Not that great to the hardcore fan, but to the newbie, it might be worth reading. It is cheap too, thats why I picked it up. Also, The Negative Dialectics Of Poodle Play, also by Ben Watson is worth a read too, if a little self indulgent.....

Not only wonderfully insightful and compelling, but bloody hilarious too.

I read it, yes. It's good but not great. Thing is, it seems she's talking more about herself than Frank. She does talk an awful lot about thing unrelated to FZ... Last 2 chapters are v. sad though where she talks about the cancer.

I'm a little over 2/3rd's of the way through it right now. Damn interesting and entertaining read.

I'm not sure about it... of course her pro-Nigey Lennon-stance has upset me enough to take a dislike to it...

Or were you talking about TRFZB? That's a fantastic read... first time I read it was before I got into FZ much, only 3 albums of which 2 compilations. Missed all the FZ references then, but loved it all the same.

OK!
That's a great book, even when I read it for the 4th time...
