Zappa Books

The purpose of this site is to provide a little help to those that are looking for written material about Frank Zappa.

This is just a reminder for all of us about this amazing site called Zappa Books. The layout of the page has changed and some new features were added: you can leave your comments and rate books. It’s full of FZ-related articles, scans, whatever – extremely rich material, it even includes Bryan Beller’s article on Alien Orifice’s bass line (Steve, do you hear me?).

Thanks, afka.net, keep up the good work!

    Best of luck with that thesis, Alex. We certainly need a thorough academic understanding of the man and his music, warts and all, rather than a lot of the popular fly by night biographies that pass themselves off as such. You have your work cut out for you.

    I’m well aware of this – hence my decision. I studied the Kinks for my senior project, another band I feel suffers from the “not enough good books out there” syndrome, though a great book on Ray Davies came out last year by a guy named Tom Kitts. Excellent book, actually.

    But with Frank, I feel like a good analysis is long overdue. Considering what we have to go off of, anyway.
