The snarky stuff where Zappa puts down his audience.... reminds me of Roger Waters to a degree. A very aloof, pseudo-intellectual air of self-importance surrounds both of these guys.


Yes that is a very astute observation. Roger Waters seems to have suffered a violent allergic reaction to his fellow human beings that is often the fate of the idealistic liberal humanists. Then again how many successful artists are not self-serving solipsists to some degree?

I don't think FZ had much hope of being feted as a jazz composer - nothing to do with the colour of his skin I just think his music is way too clenched and uptight and lacking in swing but as a second tier classical composer he was pretty deent I think.
