Yeah, no kidding, dog pee, seal clubbing, and a guy getting dog doo rubbed in his eyes is what every 10 year old wants in their iPod! I think we've fouond Frank's core demographic. Not to mention songs about titties and beer!:)

Oh man... I had to comment on this. It is such a great picture.... and of one of the greatest musicians ever! I don't know what I would be listening to now if it wasn't for him, and the ones he influenced ( Vai anyone? ). Hot Rats and Over-Nite Sensation are definately in my top... two albums of all time.

I especially like the way you did his hair.

Thanks man! I'm with you, hearing Zappa back in college probably shaped my taste in music ever since. He's definitely one of my heroes. I'd have to say the YCDTOSA series has some of my favorite versions of his stuff on them, but you gotta love apostraphe too. Glad you like the pic!

I've heard about that festival and would like to attend sometime. Just don't know who I'd set to go with me, I only have one other friend who's into Zappa, but he doesn't like him as much as me! Glad you like the scratchboard! Appreciate the fave and the watch!
