I'd say Stevie Wonder (because Zappa is credited on the "thank u's and influences" on "Songs In The Key Of Life" (if you still have a doubt, listen to "Contusion").

I'd say also actress Claudia Cardinale (because I saw a picture of her and FZ. I guess it's around the late 60's).

Zappa's alitttle too "out there" for anyone of celebritae' or political association to really acknowledge him, even if they love him. Now musicians will look like prodigy's if they give musical credit or inspiration from FZ.
Go figure celebrities anyway...fucked up as it gets.


I agree. It seems that, for some reason, people find it difficult to admit that they´re Zappa fans, or to make references to him in public. Perhaps they think it´s better to stay in the closet. As we know, that can be a lot of fun.

Gabor Csupo (pronounced "Chew-po") is also a Zappa fan. Frank did the score for the first season of the excellent series "Duckman," which was co-produced by Csupo. Dweezil was the voice of Duckman's son, Ajax, on the series as well. 8)


I remember that name. Gabor did a string of shows for Nickelodeon for a few years. Real Monsters, Rugrats?


Klasky Csupo (the company he was chairman and co-founder of) also had some link with the early simpsons episodes too, from around 1989.


The Simpsons was animated at Klasky Csupo studios from 1989 until 1992.

Pharrell Williams and everything about his music epitomises everything I hate about modern music today. I wish him nothing but shite.

That's true. Cavalier magazine October 1967.

Frank Zappa - AMAZING full page photo of Zappa with Italian sex-bomb Claudia Cardinale! The magazine sent her to the West Coast to interact with the burgeoning counter-culture. She found protestors, Hells Angels and Zappa. Here are the photos.

Evidently there was a time when Zappa music was constantly playing on their tour bus.

I know several times I heard that British feminist author, journalist and lecturer Germaine Greer <sp?> was an unabashed FZ fan of the highest order despite her philosophic and political views.

She presented a show about FZ on Radio 4 (I think) in Britain recently, and spoke of him in very glowing terms. She wants G-Spot Tornado played at her funeral, apparently.

Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull is also a big fan.
He was on Planet Rock a couple of months back playing loads of FZ music.
He's also a huge Captain Beefheart fan.

Not necessarily a celebrity, but a very powerful man: Steve Capus, President of NBC News, was in the audience at the Beacon ZpZ show.
With all the shake ups at MSNBC and with the network in general, word spread fast with the rank and file that Capus is a Zappa fan. The revelation brought the employees great comfort and hope. True story.
Speaks volumes about the effect Frank Zappa has had on this world.

And then there's the tale about FZ encountering Jeff Goldblum and then-wife Geena Davis in a restaurant. FZ told 'em he admired their work and their jaws hit the floor. Can't remember where I read that. Think Keneely related the tale.

Mr Sting....

Apart from appearing on BTHW i've heard a recording of him playing a cover of Idiot Bastard Son (presumably a ROIO).

Off topic..

Is Mr Sting the only artist to appear performing one of his own compositions on a FZ release?

Maybe F&E singing Happy Together counts too (I can't remember off the top of my head if they wrote that).

Captain Beefheart did some of his own numbers on 'Bongo Fury' (but those sound improvised.)

´O`~ (drat ho' rat, eh, shore)
"Me likesses him a lot, think he reciprocked it too. Once on an '80 concert i shouted at the top of my voice `Frank, Frank` (what else was there to do), and i swear stones&bones, that central stagediver, aka screwdriver, aha bodyguard, got ey tiny beat nervous. In 1981 "U R What U Is" swept in on the plan-E-t." -charly mmh.

I meant the music, specifically on 'Sam With The Showing Scalp Top'. That Louie Louie quote is NOT a beefheart thing, and those guitar runs are too Zappaish.
