    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    I thought that sounded familiar, and now I have remembered why - here’s part of Zappa’s sleevenotes for ‘Freak Out!’ -

    1. HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY . . . (3:27) was written for Carl Orestes Franzoni. He is freaky down to his toenails. Some day he will live next door to you and your lawn will die.

    Q. "What do you wish someone had told you about the business you're in?"

    A. "As a kid, I figured that maybe 20 percent of the population were lying, predatory snakes. It turns out it's upwards of 90 percent. "

    This one's pretty good too IMO:

    "I’ve always had a sick sense of humor and I’ve always wanted that to permeate the music because I don’t take myself seriously. I take the music seriously, but I know I’m not God’s gift to anyone except my mom."

    Morton Feldman was presenting a new piece to his teacher Stefan Wolpe. Wolpe commented this is all very well Morty, and brilliant, but what is the man in the street going to make of it? Just as Wolpe was saying this, they both looked out the window and saw Jackson Pollock crossing the road on the street below. Jackson Pollock - the man in the street.

    Lemmy Kilmister after a gig to my mate, a petite but larger than life female Mancunian... ''You've got a great pair of tits, and believe me, I've seen a lot of tits in my time!'' She's very proud of that moment.
