Frank Zappa on Fads

“I don‘t think that there‘s a girl around that would fit in with what we do” – Frank Zappa on June 6, 1971, as told to Howard Smith.

Frank Zappa had a few opinions. Surly? Matter-of-fact? Misunderstood? I’ll let you decide as PBS’ Blank On Blank presents this rarely heard interview with Zappa recorded in his hotel room.

Zappa has a few things to say about women’s lib (“a fad”), on LA vs “depressing” New York, why America is a nation of people being told what to do, and why women couldn’t hack it in his band.
