Great Mustaches in History - Frank Zappa
In honor of Jason Giambi's awesome mustache (and to just maybe kick him out of his slump), I present one of the great mustaches in history - Frank Zappa
FZ is the rock music equivalent of a single malt scotch - great, but certainly an acquired taste. Calling Zappa's music "rock" is a bit of a misnomer, as his music travels everywhere from jazz to classical to doo-wop.
I would recommend "Hot Rats," "Apostrophe(')" and "Sheik Yerbouti" as starters.
Here are some highlights
Guitar solo from "Punky's Whips" from the "Baby Snakes" film and soundtrack.
"Willie the Pimp" from "Hot Rats" featuring Captain Beefheart on vocals and an eight minute guitar solo.
"Camarillo Brillo/Muffin Man" from "Baby Snakes"
