Livin’ In The Jungle — Flo & Eddie

By the time Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan joined Frank Zappa’s second incarnation of the Mothers, not only had the Turtles disbanded, but their legal troubles had reached such epic proportions that they had lost rights not only to the band’s name, but their own ‘noms de plume’ as well so that while these cases were before the courts, neither of them could tour or perform as themselves. Thus were created the Eddie and the Phlorescent Leech (aka The Sanzini Brothers) personae out of sheer necessity.

In this clip from the Happy Together (Documentary) (1990), Volman and Kaylan explain their now famous “Manager Story” which led to their major legal entanglements.

Remember, this is not an Elton John concert!
