    Zappa was doing rap years before anyone else. Not hard to see why he was controversial with lyrics like what's in this song

    This is Frank's son Dweezil in his Band Zappa plays Zappa. I saw this exact band - they were incredible. Some amazing soloing starts at 2:30 and then again several other times during this performance that includes Steve Vai, Terry Bozzio, Napolian Murphy Brock and all these other wonderful musicians.

    Thought I'd mention that I just saw Dweezil again on Sunday 10/13. Another incredible show! On this tour, they played the "Roxy & Elsewhere" album all the way through. Seems like every time I see them them make a point to play all the hard stuff, which I personally appreciate. The "Village of the Sun" and "Echidna's Arf" medley is one of the coolest pieces of music I've ever heard.

    He's well known in San Diego and he went to high school at Mission Bay High, San Diego. And that's where he joined his first band.

    Copied from his bio.

    —Frank Zappa, 1989[12]
    Zappa joined his first band at Mission Bay High School in San Diego. He was the band's drummer.[13] About the same time his parents bought a phonograph, which allowed him to develop his interest in music, and to begin building his record collection.[14] R&B singles were early purchases, starting a large collection he kept for the rest of his life.[15] He was interested in sounds for their own sake, particularly the sounds of drums and other percussion instruments. By age 12, he had obtained a snare drum and began learning the basics of orchestral percussion.[13] Zappa's deep interest in modern classical music began[16] when he read a LOOK magazine article about the Sam Goody record store chain that lauded its ability to sell an LP as obscure as The Complete Works of Edgard Varèse, Volume One.[17] The article described Varèse's percussion composition Ionisation, produced by EMS Recordings, as "a weird jumble of drums and other unpleasant sounds". Zappa decided to seek out Varèse's music. After searching for over a year, Zappa found a copy (he noticed the LP because of the "mad scientist" looking photo of Varèse on the cover). Not having enough money with him, he persuaded the salesman to sell him the record at a discount.[17] Thus began his lifelong passion for Varèse's music and that of other modern classical composers.

    "Cosmik Debris"


    The Mystery Man came over
    An' he said: "I'm outa-site!"
    He said, for a nominal service charge,
    I could reach nervonna t'nite
    If I was ready, willing 'n able
    To pay him his regular fee
    He would drop all the rest of his pressing affairs
    And devote His Attention to me
    But I said . . .
    Look here brother,
    Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
    (Now who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?)
    Look here brother,
    Don't you waste your time on me

    The Mystery Man got nervous
    An' he fidget around a bit
    He reached in the pocket of his Mystery Robe
    An' he whipped out a shaving kit
    Now, I thought it was a razor
    An' a can of foamin' goo
    But he told me right then when the top popped open
    There was nothin' his box won't do
    With the oil of Afro-dytee
    An' the dust of the Grand Wazoo
    He said:
    "You might not believe this, little fella, but it'll cure your Asthma too!"
    An' I said . . .
    Look here brother,
    Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
    (Now what kind of a geroo are you anyway?)
    Look here brother,
    Don't you waste your time on me
    Don't waste yer time . . .

    I've got troubles of my own, I said
    An' you can't help me out
    So take your meditations an' your preparations
    An' ram it up yer snout
    "BUT I GOT A KRISTL BOL!," he said
    An' held it to the light
    So I snatched it
    All away from him
    An' I showed him how to do it right
    I wrapped a newspaper 'round my head
    So I'd look like I was Deep
    I said some Mumbo Jumbos then
    An' told him he was goin' to sleep
    I robbed his rings
    An' pocket watch
    An' everything else I found
    I had that sucker hypnotized
    He couldn't even make a sound
    I proceeded to tell him his future then
    As long as he was hanging around,
    I said
    "The price of meat has just gone up
    An' yer ol' lady has just gone down . . . "
    Look here brother,
    Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
    (Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?)
    Don't you know,
    You could make more money as a butcher,
    So don't you waste your time on me
    (Don't waste it, don't waste your time on me . . . )

    I saw him live once from the 6th row of the Capital Theater in Passaic, NJ. I think it was in Dec. of 1975. He had Captain Beefheart with him too. "I'm a Little Pimp"

    Saw him on 12/11/81 at the Santa Monica Civic (early show, 2nd row seats). Steve Vai on guitar His 7 year old son Ahmet danced around on stage to a song he wrote with Frank, and he had Nicolas Slonimsky, who was in his late 80's at the time, as a guest piano player for a song.

    Some odd guy brought two hot dogs heaped with mustard and relish up and dumped them on the stage. Frank had his body guards drag the guy up on the stage, and made him get down on his hands and knees and eat it from the stage floor. Could have been staged, but with Frank, who knows. There was a rumor around, at that time, that some guy had defecated on stage at one of his concerts, and that Frank had made him eat it. To me, this seemed too similar to have been a coincidence, but maybe that had become his way to deal with unruly fans ;~)

    Setlist: Early Show:

    Zoot Allures
    The Man From Utopia Meets Mary Lou
    Dumb All Over
    Heavenly Bank Account
    Suicide Chump

    Almost forgot. I was neighbors with Peter Wolf for years. He played keyboards for FZ. The guy was kind of a pompous jerk.

    I've been getting the same problem with YouTube. "Embed link" doesn't work any more. It just displays the HTML code instead.
