One of the times that I saw Zappa was at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio. IMO, the acoustics in Vets Memorial is terrible. I saw several concerts there and the sound was poor at all of them except for Zappa's. In addition to being a great musician, he knew sound and the engineering involved. I have heard that he was very involved in the sound setup at his concerts and would show up early to make sure that everything was perfect. If he could make Vets Memorial sound great, he had to be good.
Yup...Frank was da connoisseur of perfection....looked pretty cool in dark shades also if I may say so...

When I was 15 I saw a decent early Styx concert while sitting on the wood gym floor at my high school in Il.

Pretty awesome.... 1974

I'll bet that was awesome. Tommy Shaw is great.

I only saw Frank once. IIRC, he had a broken leg and played the show in a wheelchair.

 Right now I'm listening to the "Goat Rodeo Sessions" featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile.

That's the one with Orange County Lumber Truck. Oh, and who could forget, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Sexually Aroused Gas Mask? :-D

Zappa invented many pieces of sound synthesizers and enhancement equipment including I think the wawa. One of his main gigs was writing music for orchestras that was quite good as well. Considered by many to be a musical genius and contrary to popular belief, DID NOT do drugs. Said he tried it and didn't like the sh1t. Very much an eccentric musical prodigy!!!

I met Beefheart once.  'Twas in a bar in Iowa City, IA.  Gabe & Walker's.  They used to advertise ... "Come out, get drunk and be someone!"

Yes, it's amazing that he could have hung out with the Mothers and not done drugs, but I believe it to be true. This is an excellent book about FZ:

He drank a little bit, not much from what I've read, but ciggy butts, those were his downfall and took their toll on him as we know. Tobacco is the biggest contrdiction in the so called war against drugs there is. Sell the crap all over the place but OMG not pot, REFFER MADNESS will get you :-D

That's a blast from the past! I remember watching that when it was first on. Letterman was so much better back then when it was on NBC. I can't stand the show now.

This one was interesting too from a long time ago:
