Re: Zappa/Eminem
Nov 07, 2004, 13:22
I sortof wonder if eminem would feel any affinity with Randy Newmans lyrics. Eminem and Zappa do share a common trait in humorous cynicism aimed at certain sections of society, I like to think this is not for commercial reasons, just the way these guys are/were.
Don't know too much about eminem, but Zappa was pisstaking right from the word go. "Brown Shoes don't make it" springs to mind. His then cohort Beefheart was another example in a distorted menacing blues way.
Hopefully Eminem will do Band Aid remake instead of McFartney, Dildo, Bonob etc.
