Anecdote #464 (Scene One)

it begins in late 1977 in the basement of frank zappa’s hollywood home. it’s a saturday and as usual I’m learning the material for next week’s rehearsals. being the only “non-reader” in the band this was a common way for me to prepare. today’s lesson is a brand new song frank has just written called flakes.
