Happy birthday, Frank Zappa. Thanks for creating so much good listening, defending free speech, promoting voting, and so often making sense.
There’s lots of video. Here’s the Crossfire dismembering (1988):
Among my faves:
- Finnish interview (1974)
- The Letterman interviews (one and two (brown lipstick)) from the 1980s.
- Extensive interview with Dick Cavett (one, two, and three).
- The Cutting Edge interview.
- Talking with Arsenio Hall.
- On the Late Show with Joan Rivers.
- On Larry King (one and two) from 1989.
- The CNN entertainment segment about Mr. Zappa’s autobiography.
