Hi all! I'm new to this forum, I see some real interesting things being discussed.
The only time I saw Zappa live was in 1988 at "The Brighton Centre" U.K. I really enjoyed it, although some idiot in the crowd threw a can of beer at the bass guitarist (I think) and made him screw up his riff, Frank really berated the fool and said the band would clear off stage if it happened again, fair play I thought and I think the beer can thrower got sorted by some hard core fans.
I had too much to drink but remember being so happy that I'd finally seen the great man in concert, good memories!!

Thanks for the welcome! "Zank" sounds a bit odd doesn't it, maybe I should have picked another name, I know I'll use my birth name, Joe.

You could have called yourself "Goe's Jarage". :idea:

Don't worry about your name though. Around here we're more interested in the content of your character. :)

Thanks again. It seems to be a big place this forum! and still so much activity more than 20 years after the great man's death, it goes to show how ingenious his music was as it still affects so many people today, a truly unique artist indeed!
