             Frank Zappa - The Freakout List DVD

             GUEST REVIEW by Gary Pig Gold
             Long before the Valley Girls, Jewish princesses, mud sharks, dental floss,
             yellow snow and, tragically, the cancer which claimed him in 1993, there
             was simply Francis Vincent Zappa, a young kid with an above-eclectic
             record collection who escaped the confines of Lancaster, California to
             arrive in Hollywood with his rockin’ teen combo The Mothers of Invention
             in 1965. His career on stage and disc thereafter caused countless
             unsuspecting youngsters such as myself to immediately set aside their
             Monkees albums in order that we could join our newest mentor upon this
             most adventurous of all, as it turns out, musical paths.

             But exactly how did this seemingly unassuming
             composer/guitarist with a penchant for sinister
             footwear become one of the most musically and
             socially iconoclastic participants of the 1960s?
