There a new documentary out soon on the always colorful and unapologetic Frank Zappa called “Eat That Question”: Here’s the trailer to whet your whistle:
Zappa was always a colorful interview with often pithy and hilarious (often one in the same) quotes, as these clips below display, many from his battle with the PMRC.
And even here, in one of his last interviews before his death:
Here’s a collection of some of his best quotes: As for my favorites, I have to go with these classics:
“Music is the only religion that delivers the goods.”
“A drug is not bad. A drug is a chemical compound. The problem comes in when people who take drugs treat them like a license to behave like an asshole.”
“If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.”
“You’re never gonna please anyone else, so you might as well please yourself.”
How about you? What’s your favorite Zappa quote?
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
