Just look at the expression on Frank Zappa’s face…You can tell Zappa isn’t really having any of it, and the feeling was mutual – Andy Warhol hated Zappa. The interview made a lasting impression on Warhol. Here’s the entry from The Andy Warhol Diaries for June 26, 1983:
Frank Zappa came to be interviewed for our TV show and I think that after the interview I hated Zappa even more than when it started. I remember when he was so mean to us when the Mothers of Invention played with the Velvet Underground— I think both at the Trip, in L.A., and at the Fillmore in San Francisco. I hated him then and I still don’t like him. And he was awfully strange about Moon. I said how great she was, and he said, “Listen, I created her. I invented her.” Like, “She’s nothing, it’s all me.” And I mean, if it were my daughter I would be saying, “Gee, she’s so smart,” but he’s taking all the credit. It was peculiar.
