“Information is not knowledge.
Knowledge is not wisdom. 
Wisdom is not truth. 
Truth is not beauty. 
Beauty is not love. 
Love is not music. 
Music is THE BEST.” —Frank Zappa

The Telegraph says the sense of Zappa’s presence was genuinely strong, not just through the use of his vocals and guitar solos, but because he was such an original artist who imprinted his personality on the people who played his ridiculously inventive material with him. For several sections, the astonishingly gifted band took over completely, playing ridiculously convoluted pieces with a glee that had band members laughing and the audience whooping in delight. Don't miss the final two shows of The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa's debut run, playing TONIGHT in Oostende, BE at @kursaaloostende; and Friday May 17 in Amsterdam, NL at @raiamsterdam! Tickets and info: Link in bio

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
The Mothers officially named #OnThisDay (coincidentally Mother's Day) in 1964.

Prior to this, FZ had a power trio called The Muthers. The Mothers would soon change their name again after record executives at Verve objected. At the time, if you were a good musician, you were a motherfucker.  And 'Mothers' was short for a collection of motherfuckers. said FZ, And actually, it was kind of presumptuous to name the band that because we weren't that good musicians. But by bar band standards in the area, we were light years ahead of our competition.  But in terms of real musicianship, I suppose we were right down there in the swamp.
Verve suggested the new name The Mothers Auxiliary, which prompted FZ to come up with the name The Mothers of Invention. Zappa later said: Out of necessity, we became The Mothers of Invention.
