New Zappa doc on Blu

He was such a weirdo, it doesn't matter that he only had one chart hit.

"Valley Girl" #85 1982

What I meant besides stating the obvious was that this should appeal to everybody, not just fans. The weirdness is the selling point. The man is interesting enough that the music is almost secondary.

I'd want to buy the Blu even if I did not own a single note of his music.

Apparently the sequel Sons Of Zappa has shocked many viewers owing to violent content throughout.
