Tale of the Three Assholes, 1977

Recorded at the Palladium in New York City on October 29th, 1977, Frank Zappa tells the story behind “Bobby Brown (Goes Down)“, one of his most famous songs which topped the charts in some European countries around 1979/80.

  1. HA! I love the photo choice (Gotti boys) to help us visualize the “three assholes”. There was a hair gel shortage in Howard Beach because of deeze guys!
    Only kidding. Please don’t have me wacked, I’m a family man.

    I love these little moments with Frank on stage.
    I miss the Palladium days. Good times! Thanks for the post.

    I wonder if Bobby(Mr. Whitney Houston)Brown has ever listened to Bobby Brown? I don’t think it would make it on his iPod.
