Baltimore Or Bust

My inbox just about exploded this morning with news that the city of Baltimore is to accept a statue of FZ as a gift to the city:

Baltimore Zappa Statue

Until they met last night, some members of the Baltimore Public Art Commission, which voted unanimously to accept the gift of the bronze sculpture – valued at about $50,000 – were also unaware of Zappa’s connection to Charm City.
However, the donors of the bust, who come from much farther afield – in fact, from a nation Zappa never visited – are well aware of his background.

That’d be Vilnius, Lithuania, of course.

Lo and behold: GS “avidly supports placing the sculpture in Baltimore, where her late husband’s quirky views of life fit with the work of such great local artists as John Waters.”…

  1. The foremost local news story is MAN DIES IN PIGTOWN ALTERCATION

    yep, they should have a statue of FZ ok

  2. I’ve been wanting to visit Frank’s birthplace for awhile now. My wife’s family moved to Baltimore recently, so we drive 4 hours south from New York (every once in awhile) to visit them. The statue would be great, since I can’t seem to find any other Zappa tributes or the home he lived in?!
