Frank was the BOSS and was not open to anything that was not from his head. There were no arguments about music because if you did, he would show you where the door was. Period.

   

I was hoping for it to be possibly a movie career as I still would like to see that happen. I enjoyed making 200 Motels and did try out for a few things when I lived in LA, but nothing ever happened. I'm still hoping though.

   

I think a lot of the Mothers stuff that we recorded was written while we were on the road.

   

I use Windows; '98 second edition and it works very good for me. You know, I just started on the computer about 9 months ago and am fascinated with the possibilities. I don't know what I would do without it now.

   

I'm doing it with a rock format and the words are about people living in harmony with Mother Earth. It's very important to me - and I feel it should be for every living human on this planet.

   

As far as me knowing if Frank was a genius - in those days, I thought Einstein was the only genius around.

   

Watch MTV and you can see what the music scene is like in England. The Spice Girls? Not a lot of creativity in the commercial area. There are still great musicians in England, but not a lot being heard that much.

   

In my opinion, Lenny Bruce was more of an influence on Zappa's satirical lyric's than anyone that I know of.

   

I've done every tour with them since then and will always be with them as long as they're together.

   

We are not a Zappa cover band. We only play Frank's songs that were recorded by the Mothers of Invention and I think a lot of those songs were complex.

   

I had pretty much raised my kids and my first wife and I were divorced, so I began, in earnest, to start my musical career again. Going for the big record deal and all of that.

   

Most people are really cool and I really don't mind talking to them and answering their questions.

   

I would have told him that I appreciated his friendship through the years and that I had learned a lot from him. I really loved Frank like you do a brother.

   

Hendrix was big in England. We all became good friends and I am still in touch with Noel Redding.

   

It was a wild time - a time that I don't miss anymore. But then again, I'm 62 years old now and I think that lifestyle would probably put me where Frank's at now.

   

I know I didn't like that dress 'cause it didn't fit but I thought it was a great picture. We weren't the first band to do a picture in drag; The Rolling Stones were. If it was good enough for them then it had to be good enough for us.

   

First of all; Frank was the BOSS. We didn't question any of his motives or decisions at the time.

   

My drum sticks are in the "Hall of Fame." I know that.

   

When some guy shows up with a shopping bag full of records and CD's and wants me to sign every one plus fifteen pieces of blank paper I wonder what the hell is he doing with all of that?

   

The fans have been very nice to me and I might say that all those fans that Frank said went away is not so.
