I'm with you. I couldn't be bothered reading the whole article either!

The first Zappa albums I heard were You Are What You Is and Hot Rats. I still enjoy them both 26 years later.

I don't really understand why you would compare him to George Clinton, Miles Davis etc. FZ was and will remain the best FZ ever.

As for the humour, I always took it as ironic. But maybe that was just me hiding my own soft spot for schoolboy jokes.

The bits of the article that I read were well argued. I won't deny that. But given the choice of the complete writngs of the author or one Zappa track - I'd go for the Zappa. Then again, you'd need bog roll on a desert island.
