Quoting Frank Zappa (and his mother)

"Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."
Frank Zappa



"The thing that makes me mad about Frank is that his hair is curlier than mine - and blacker."
Zappa's mother on Zappa



The photographs of Frank Zappa (1940-1993) with his parents were taken for the 24 September 1971 issue of LIFE by John Olson (via).
"Everyone had told me that Frank Zappa was going to be really difficult, and he couldn't have been more professional."  John Olson
