    ★★★★

    Frank Zappa was the genesis for anybody uttering the phrase ‘What the fuck are you listening to?!?’  

    I got the impression that Zappa was an asshole who would never admit to anyone successfully playing his compositions. But damnit, he was a genius! In the same way God needs the Devil, the Plebs need Frank Zappa!!!
