Zappa and Beefheart are the worst but I can deal with Safe as Milk. I haven't heard one Zappa song that I like.

I think I own about 40 Zappa CDs. Plus vinyl.

same here (although, i like "Ashtray Heart").  i can listen to Beefheart until it turns to nonsense.  or is it all nonsense?

I also enjoy Frank Zappa. Come on, who's with me??!?!!
Anybody?

Most of the musically dexterous goobeldy-gook stuff turns me way off, but I still go back to Freak Out and In It for the Money quite a bit.

Zappa?

NO.

I tried to see what the fuss was about some years ago.  It was more sad than anything.

I enjoyed Tom's impression of 'every Zappa song I've ever heard'.

To me, Zappa sounds like somebody who has some talent just trying too hard to be clever.  I tried really hard to like that 'Plastic People' song.

 I saw Frank live twice in 1984 and twice again in 1988. I also met him briefly at a book signing in 1989- he still looked healthy, but miserable.

Safe as Milk is good but my favorite Beefheart is Clear Spot. I'm not so into the Troutmaskreplica/Lick My Decals Off, Baby free jazz/spazzy stuff.

Zappa, not so much.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.
