Here is a link to a video from 1986 of Frank Zappa on Crossfire making a great arguement against government censorship of music.
Zappa Video

Most interviews I've heard with Zappa have been a little out there, but in this one he is very composed and he nails the government censorship arguement on the head.

I know a lot of people on here will probably side with his opposition on this subject, but I hope that those who watch it will at least listen to what he is saying first.

Yeah! Go Frank! I haven't watched the vid yet but i remember the story like it was yesterday (rubs chin wistfully. .)

that was when he took on the p.m.r.c. which was led at the time by Tipper Gore, wife of Al, wasn't it?

Everyone thinks Frank was so out there, but he didn't do drugs, stood up for people (ala the censorship issue) and wrote a bunch of symphonies too.

Beautiful. I can't see how anyone can not love this guy.

That Lofton guy was scary. And the debate - well, it reminded me a little too much of some of the debates here on ATS.

A quote from an earlier thread of mine I thought you would appreciate...

The One... The Only...

Frank Zappa

A patriot...


So who is with me? If the DNA thing don't work out we'll start printing press releases about his long overdue Martyrdom and start organizing the movement.
