Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Inducted into the International Mustache Hall of Fame in 2015 (inaugural class) in the category Music & Arts.
2 Co-founded Bizarre Records in 1967.
3 Subject of the song "Frank" by Wild Man Fischer.
4 Founded Barking Pumpkin Records in 1981. He also founded Zappa Records, Barfko-Swill [mail order distribution] and DiscReet (record company).
5 Did not like being called "rock legend" and considered it a "pathetic" term. Also did not like being called a "test pilot pushing the edge" since he felt the term sounded too military. As far as being called an "eccentric genius", Zappa said in an interview prior to his death, "Eccentric, yes. Genius, maybe.".
6 In an interview prior to his death, Zappa revealed he had had urination problems for years but that the prostate cancer wasn't caught until it was inoperable. He hinted this made him extremely bitter and advised others with urination problems to get multiple opinions.
7 Despite his prostate cancer, Zappa continued to smoke. He told an interviewer he considered cigarettes to be "food", tobacco his favorite vegetable and did not believe cigarettes caused the reported health problems.
8 "Cured" his kids of sibling rivalry by making a tape of them squabbling, then forcing them to listen to said tape while handcuffed together in the bathroom; this was to show them how dumb they sounded when bickering.
9 Zappa sponsored Hagstrom guitars early in his career. However, on his first three albums with The Mothers of Invention, he used a Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster. During the mid to late 1970s, he played a highly modified Gibson SG clone. He had one of Jimi Hendrix's guitars which was lit on fire by Jimi at the 1968 Miami Pop Festival.
10 Gene Simmons visited with the Zappa family at their home, socializing, some time before Zappa's death. During their visit, Zappa showed him something that proved how prolific Zappa was: hundreds of master tapes of unreleased music.
11 During his last days, he wanted to make a movie called "Dwell". "Dwell" would have been a musical about a giant spider, but from the spider's point of view. He was going to make it with the people from Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988), and had several conversations with Kevin Murphy.
12 He was voted the 21st Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists of all time by Rolling Stone.
13 Included a warning-cum-guarantee on his late-1980s albums, deriding the Religious Right's attack on rock and pop music, and censorship in general, and concluding "If there is a Hell, its fires wait for them, not us.".
14 Started out playing drums in his teens, then adopted his brother's f-hole acoustic guitar, trying to copy horn and guitar solos on blues and jazz records. Later studied Music Theory in college.
15 Bought a small recording studio with the proceeds of his score for Run Home, Slow (1965); first came to public attention when he was arrested in a scandal involving the studio (he was later cleared).
16 Used a wah-wah with his onstage guitar setup, which he had usually leave set in one position as a filter, rather than rock it to get the wah effect.
17 Wrote his own copyright notice, that appeared on his later records, and was the first to specifically mention sampling. Also released the first 3-inch CD single, with a remix of "Peaches En Regalia", in the late 1980s.
18 Gave up his driver's license voluntarily, because he hated standing in line at the DMV.
19 In March of 2003 his 1979 album "Joe's Garage" came 20th in Classic Rock Magazine's list of the 30 greatest concept albums of all time.
20 Zappa is the first, and so far only, artist to be inducted into both the Jazz and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.
21 Inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.
22 In recent years, various reworkings of his songs have been recorded, including versions in Baroque instrumental and a cappella vocal stylings.
23 In 1995, a group of Lithuanian artists erected the world's first Zappa statue in Vilnius, the capital. Since then one has been erected in Bad Doberan, Germany (which Gail Zappa says does not look like him), and another (a copy of the bust in Vilnius) in Baltimore, Maryland.
24 Following his death, he was interred in an unmarked grave next to Lew Ayres at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
25 His father, Francis Vincent Zappa, was born in Partinico, Sicily, and his mother, Rose Marie (Colimore), was born in Baltimore, Maryland, to Italian parents.
26 The small town of Bad Doberan, Germany, holds an annual Zappanale festival, celebrating his life and music (first held in 1990).
27 As a child, his favorite television program was Robert Clampett's puppet show Time for Beany (1949).
28 Father of Diva Zappa, Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa
29 In July 1994, the International Astronomical Union named a Czech-discovered asteroid "Zappafrank".
30 Has an enormous following in the former Communist countries of eastern Europe.
31 Is known affectionately by his fans as FZ.
32 Was school friends with Don Van Vliet (later to be known as Captain Beefheart).
33 When marrying Gail Zappa in a civil ceremony, he attached a pin that said "Congratulations from Mayor Lindsay" onto her in lieu of a ring. John V. Lindsay was mayor of New York City at the time.

Quotes

#Quote
1 I think Live Aid was the biggest cocaine money laundering scheme of all time.
2 Jazz isn't dead, it just smells funny.
3 Those who are crazy enough to take the chance on spending money to make some unusual object or event take place are an endangered species.
4 [about himself] Well, in this world of basic stereotyping, give a guy a big nose and some weird hair and he's capable of anything.
5 I think business is a good thing. Generals could learn a lot from corporate executives. The first rule is, you don't kill your customers.
6 [During an appearance in 1986 on CNN's Crossfire (1982)] The biggest threat to America today is not communism. It's the turning of this country into a fascist theocracy and everything that's happened during the [Ronald Reagan] Administration has put us right down that pipe!
7 My dad was employed as a meteorologist at the Edgewood Arsenal. They made poison gas there during World War II, so I guess it would have been the meteorologist's job to figure out which way the wind was blowing when it was time to shoot the stuff off.
8 Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say that there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
9 Watch out where the huskies go, don't you eat that yellow snow.
10 It is probably more natural to perform sex with a sea urchin than to be interviewed.
11 Censoring what you say is one of the ways in which people who are not nice can take away your personal freedom.
12 [in the late 1980s] Religion has mostly proven to be a real-estate scam.
13 [Explaining why he felt communism was doomed to fail] People like to own things.
14 [Asked to create an anti-drug abuse slogan] Speed will turn you into your parents.
15 Work is the only reason I leave home. I'm not a tourist. I don't travel for pleasure. I don't take vacations. I only leave the house when I have something to do.
16 Some rock musicians make a bunch of money and stick it up their noses--I stick mine in my ear.
17 Bad facts make bad law, and people who write bad laws are in my opinion more dangerous than songwriters who celebrate sexuality.
18 I've smoked ten marijuana cigarettes in my life. And they've given me a sore throat, a headache, and made me sleepy. I can't understand why anyone would wanna use the stuff. It seems such an impractical pastime as you can get sent to jail for it.
19 I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.
20 Rock journalism is people who can't write, preparing stories based on interviews with people who can't talk, in order to amuse people who can't read.
