Not sure if you guys like 311, but they are probably close to my 2nd or 3rd fave behind FZ..

Anyway, at the end of 311's summer 2006 tour with The Wailers, each band member posted a paragraph about the tour on their website. Tim Mahoney, their guitarist, ended his statement saying, "as a wise man once said, music is the best!" This caused me to do a little research and i found the following picture from the summer 2006 tour:

he must've picked it up at one of the ZPZ shows, like me!

What you have is not an image url but a html link which uses javascript to display the picture, so you can only use at as a url as follows inside [url][/url] brackets:
You can only use if you have a direct link to the image file itself.

also, Sublime and the Long Beach Dub All-Stars were big fans of FZ. FZ is thanked verbally on the last track of Sublime's 40 Oz. To Freedom and is thanked in the liner notes of their album "Robbin' the Hood".

The Long Beach Dub All Stars, which contained the bassist and drummer of Sublime formed after Bradley died, use the melody of "I'm the Slime" in one of their songs that came out in 2001. the song is called "Luke". the whole song is basically built around the melody of I'm The Slime. its pretty cool. especially cool if you dig the irie reggae sound.

Has Alice Cooper been mentioned? Seems he has a syndicated radio show and mentons Frank almost every show. And I don't know if any of you know of Kim Mitchell, but he's an old Canadian rocker who used to front a band called Max Webster. I saw him on show where he was doing some acoustic music. When they came back from a commercial break Kim was playing some Zappa and mentioned him as an influence.

he was a guest on letterman's show twice--and dave seemed to really enjoy him. paul schaffer has played zappa tunes on letterman and on snl before.

leno had him on the tonight show when he was a guest host and they got on well.

conan had the zappa boys on and they told him frank liked this dancing hippie character that was featured on conan's debut. seems as though he's asked dweezil and ahmet about fz.

and why do we have to have "PROOF" all the damn time on things that seem like no-brainers but we all seem to say "yeah, that happened" for occurences we know never did. shit-eating frank? so many people never gave it a second thought. frank as a student in germany in the 50's? hey, why not? :roll:

The Chieftains! http://www.thechieftains.com/

FZ was a guest on a BBC Radio 4 program in 1991 (see here: http://www.polemicmusic.com/002/zappainterview) along with the Chieftains... that's how they met. At the end of the BBC 2 Late Show documentary on FZ there is some film of the Chieftains, Johnny "Guitar", Terry Bozzio and a few throat singers having a Soiree at FZ's house. I would love to have a recording of THAT jam.

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.

I have a copy of the soiree and although the viewer rarely sees Frank, you can feels his presence. When Frank speaks the room is hanging on his every word. This video is jam packed with celebrity sightings.

I know I can't prove this, but Conan o' Brien gave the graduating class of my highschool a speech at graduation last year. (You can look that up, at least). I was in Chorus, and I sang there, and on the way out I was humming Inca Roads and he was like 'Oh, nice, some Zappa fans' and walked out.

stumbled upon this: http://www.snakepit.org/answers02.html

Elliott asks, "I was wondering if Frank Zappa had any influence on you or any classical influence on you. You talk about Led Zeppelin being a big influence, and a lot of English rock has a quite clear classical influence. Also, has jazz had any influence on you?

SLASH replies, "I like Frank Zappa a lot, but I can't say that he was much of an influence on my guitar playing. But as an orchestrator, lyricist and overall personality, he had a huge overall influence. Also, I love classical music. It has left a major mark on my playing."

The character "E" on Entourage (HBO) wore an FZ shirt in an episode.

She showed her breasteses at a DZ show in 1994.
Even today she will attend LA Zappa type shows.
She came out at Dweezil's last LA show. Top on. Did some Slime vocals onstage.
