After my recent chat with Ahmet (http://idiotbastard.com/Interviews/AhmetZappa.htm), he tasked me with assembling goodies for a scrapbook of Zappa fan memorabilia.

If you have something (correspondence, art, posters, bootlegs, t-shirts - anything that demonstrates your passion for all things Frank), please email me via disco.boy@blueyonder.co.uk (posting details here would spoil the surprise for others!).

Obviously, the rarer the material, the better the book. It goes without saying that all contributions will be fully credited.

Thanks in advance.

What I have that demonstrates my passion for FZ is a complete lack of empathy and respect for those who keep exploiting him for commercial reasons.

I don't suppose Ahmet would want that viewpoint in the book.

' Commercialism ' availed you to make that comment , on a FZ forum , which was produced as the result of ' commercialism ' or this forum wouldn't exist.

My post wasn't against commercialism. You misread it.

I don't believe I did.

Could you please speak more clearly ?

Frank completely knew that he would have to be commercially viable to some degree to be able to continue doing what he loved, as Terri famously once said "Sometimes you have to walk in a line to get what you need"... :idea:

Completely agree.

Hopefully this thread can get back to IB's original intent and away from personal feelings .
