    Not that nice of one, but that's OK because I would be worried about doing this to pristine bike:

His audience in the US was mostly male, followers typically were fairly cynical outside of the musical purists that were provided with the rich and complicated polyrythms and dense compositional efforts of a musician who could laugh at himself as well as the world and actually injected humor into music because he asserted that it belonged there. Serious musicians mostly dismissed him from among the ranks of themselves, but he was well received by a small minority of composers and conductors. But to answer your question, I just don't think that Frank ever really crossed the radar of the mass media. He mocked nearly every religion, so that scared the commercial media. He was unfairly (IMO) labelled as a mysogynist and an anti-semite, etc. while in truth, he was anti drug, pro education and political when it came to his fervor to spread the word that voting was important. He made a guest appearance or two during congressional hearings, a few late night jaunts, etc. but he even managed to step on SNL's toes by mocking their talents live on Saturday night. I think Frank probably wanted more media attention, simply because that might have indicated the audience was picking up on his message(s), but he would have made sure they paid in shock and awe value at some point. I may be wrong but I think Frank was much more widely appreciated in Europe (and especially so in eastern Europe) than in the US.
    I had so many friends into Zappa and Cpt Beefheart .He was quite popular here with the audiophiles and vinyl nuts of which I know a few . I was never a fan I have watched 100 motels listened to probably every album but I am afraid it just did not get it . I will stick to Depech Mode and Kraftwerk .
    Some folks accuse me of thinking the world revolves around me ,but it doesnt .It revolves around the sun which shines out my arse !
