Special song of the day for Charles: Frank Zappa Cammarillo Brillo, Muffin Man & St Alphonso’s Pancake Breakfast

I recently was told by his mother that he was curious about Frank Zappa therefore I immediately started to rack my brain to figure out where to start him.  I went crazy on youtube with almost the creepy feeling like I was shopping for some porno & a bong for him.

I am a ridculous crazy Frank Zappa fan, I was introduced to him, partially by my much missed cousin Jimmy, and due to the fact that the band Fishbone mentioned Frank as an influence in a guitqar magazine, which was echoed by John Laroquette of Night court talking to Arsenio Hall on an episode of his old talk show.   And from that influence I bought “Freak Out” & have been hooked ever since.

I know I can barely keep track of my keys but I remember a talk show episode from the late 80’s. 

In any case after much thought I found this live performance of Cammarillo Brillo & Muffin Man from 1979 which are two of my favorites.

I also had to include St Alphonso’s Pancake Breakfast since it is my favorite,

There are dozens of others I could have picked, so I give the other Zappa selections & whatnot to you my beloved “Lummoxcateers”

He’s an 18 year old “Weird Al “fan who also loves Queen, Iron Maiden and Buckethead,

What stuff do you want me to force him to hear?

I expect comments people….
