Frank was an outsider, different moved around alot but took his music collection with him. Hated idiots in authority, bullies, fascistts and saw through the hypocrisy. All alone in his lonely teenage room, a stack of R&B records, meticulously catalogued and memorized. I am grateful for that obsessive cataloguing because a teenage record collection turned into the Vault, meticulously recorded.
I understand Frank More now. He truly was diffficult to work for if you were not prepared, intolerant but a loving, loyal, generous man who took care of those he loved. He never wore love on his sleeeve but many of his actions showed great generosity of spirit.
Bobby Zappa knew his brother well in their early years 1-20 and people generally do not change character.
Bobby did a great job told it as it was and nothing more. No wild bs groupie stories.
One think I found odd was Bobby never mentioned his nieces or nephews least of all Gail.Maybe that is good maybe he did not really know them or like Gail so he maturely just omitted her. That is integrity.so withheld talking about them. It is also clear that Bobby was Franks biggest personal hero he adored him and looked up to him to the point where he really puts himself down by comparing himself to Frank. Frank was an aberration of nature he is a tough one to keep up with on many levels. Bobby has done well and if anything he has love, feelings, and integrity. He could of twisted facts to make for a more lurid book but he speaks the truth as he remembers it.
- Bob delivers when it comes to the complete Zappaphile quest for 'conceptual continuity'
- Everybody likes a good story
Enjoyable to non Zappaphiles: this is the story of Bob, little brother of Frank. Well... we all were children once and had to put up with hardship, great or small. Few result in a page turner. Thank you Bob !
