Birthday boy: Frank Zappa, December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993. (Check bottom for credit)

The R&H pays tribute to Frank Zappa, who would have turned 73 today.


If Frank Zappa hadn't bit the big one on December 4, 1993, he would today (21/12/13) be celebrating his 73rd birthday.

Many happy returns, sir!

Here's Montana.

Sorry the footage is a bit ropey, but it's the music that counts.

After all, as Zappa observed: "Music is the best."

And you know what?

He was right.

Except in a library, of course.
