“They make the best kinda pet”, Baby snakes...

Zappa_head_1 I received the following email from Michael Keropian, the Frank Zappa Sculptor:

“A (friend of a friend)…had spoken to Frank via telephone on a number of occasions in the eighties or nineties… This lady was an army brat and had suffered with sinus problems much like Frank and received the same treatments in the nose that Frank had. This treatment was only given to Army brats or families who worked in some way with the military… It is now known and I believe back then that those that received this treatment have a very strong possibility of getting a brain tumor… Although this treatment could cause tumors, it also provided the patient/victim with amazingly sensitive hearing. As we all know Frank had an amazing sense of hearing…”

Other Zappa news:

"Monster Road" is an award-winning new documentary that explores the wildly fantastic worlds of legendary underground animator Bruce Bickford, best known for his claymation work and animated performance in Zappa's movies "Baby Snakes" and “Video From Hell”
