Watch the video below this one of Zappa performing Black Napkins on the Mike Douglas talk show in 1976. Incredibly expressive playing and some serious chops. Check out this YouTube playlist for more gems. There is currently a very cool Kickstarter happening (only 5 hours to go!) that involves access to ALL of the Zappa archive (video below the first video).
Alex Winter has a saweet! project ahead of him. Only 5 hours left to get in on it, so hurry! If you don’t know about him (and many don’t, alas), here’s a tiny little taste of one of the most intelligent and interesting musicians of the 20th century. Check it.
